Imo State Government has dismissed the threat issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Tuesday.
Imo State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, while reacting to a threat issued by IPOB declaring a sit-at-home in the state on Tuesday, said IPOB cannot threaten Buhari, adding that security operatives are ready for the president’s visit to Imo.
“Nobody can threaten Buhari. He’s president and commander in chief of the federal republic of Nigeria. Imo is one of the states he governs, and he is free to visit it. Security is in top gear, and I can assure you that his visit will be successful,” Emelumba said.
IPOB had declared a sit-at-home across the Southeast on Tuesday, tagging it a day of civil action across the Southeast.
The group declared the order ahead of the Appeal Court hearing of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and Buhari’s planned visit to the Southeast.
Buhari is expected to inaugurate three signature projects built by Governor Hope Uzodinma administration on Tuesday.
