Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in Mecca (Makkah), the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Recall that President Buhari had accepted an invitation by the King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, the ruler of Saudi Arabia and Custodian of the two Holy Mosques to perform the Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) in the Kingdom.
Last Friday pictures of the President and his wife Aisha performing Umrah (lesser Hajj) at the Masjid Haram (the Grand Mosque) in Makkah surfaced online.
The Personal Assistant to Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, shared pictures of the President on his Twitter page with the caption:
“President @MBuhari performs Umrah (lesser Hajj) at the Masjid Haram (the Grand Mosque) in Makkah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
However, after the Presidential aide shared the photos, Kanu took to Twitter handle to post same photos, alleging that the photos were taken in 2016 during Buhari’s Umrah (lesser Hajj) not 2019.
The IPOB leader shared the photos with the caption:
“Shameless and fraudulent Fulani cabal with corrupt Yoruba media have published a falsehood beyond comprehension.
“This same 2016 photos of late Buhari in Mecca has resurfaced to deceive the gullible in 2019. Despicable!”
