Reacting to Kyari’s death during a live broadcast over the weekend, Kanu, who is on exile in the United Kingdom, alleged that the Presidential office cannot be accessed because the palm print of late Kyari is needed to open the door to the President‘s office.
Speaking on Radio Biafra, the IPOB leader said: “If you can go into the presidential office and stream from that office, I will abandon Biafra. The key to the office is lying somewhere in the grave in Abuja. You cannot access the office.
Kanu stressed that 2023 Presidency will not hold in Nigeria because President Buhari is an impostor and that Abba Kyari who would have made the 2023 Presidential election possible is dead.
Speaking further, the IPOB leader said Nigeria would be destroyed before 2023, this was even as he directed all IPOB members to attack anybody wearing President Buhari’s face, insisting that the President is dead and had since been replaced by Jubril Al-Sudani from Sudan.
According to Kanu, “There won’t be Presidency in 2023 because the zoo would be crushed this year,” the IPOB leader opined.
The IPOB leader continued: “I am giving IPOB members a directive, wherever you see anybody wearing Buhari face mask, attack the person. Buhari is dead.
“If I were to be a Yoruba person, the Yoruba media would have verified my Jubril claim by now,” Kanu added.
