Nigerian Social Media is currently buzzing after a rumour alleging that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has died.
Kanu, the pro-secessionist leader who is known for being a strong critic of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, trended on Social media platform, Twitter on Tuesday night after self-acclaimed journalist and broadcaster, Kemi Olunloyo tweeted of his ‘death’.
“#BREAKING Tomorrow I will tell you if IPOB Terror leader Nnamdi Kanu is DEAD in Italy and cremated or being impersonated by a Double Nnamdi of Sudan. I’m the only credible Journalist for this #Kemitalks”.
This generated a storm of reactions on the platform with some users calling for Kanu to hold a live broadcast tomorrow to debunk the report.

If he must convince us, he should do a live video broadcast, hold a pen and a laptop over his head. And don’t forget when our honourable Aunty Kemi announces your death that’s the end.”
The IPOB leader is yet to react to the development. This is coming shortly after Kanu had alleged on Twitter, on Monday, that President Muhammadu Buhari was being impersonated. He claims that the ‘real president’ did not have a ‘hole’ in the neck.
