Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari do a live media chat or a press conference to update Nigerians on COVID-19.
In a tweet via his Twitter page on Friday, Kanu challenged the president to address Nigerians in a live broadcast and put to rest rumours of being an imposter.
He wrote: “Biafrans in #Nigeria demand that @NGRPresident do a live media chat with the press or a press conference to update on #COVID__19.”
“We refuse that a #BuhariDoppelgänger from Sudan will continue to destroy the lives and livelihoods of over 200 million people. #BiafraExit #Biafra”

This is coming a day after the pro-seccessionist advised former President Goodluck Jonathan to challenge the allegations against him by the federal government.
Kanu said this on Thursday while reacting to moves by Buhari administration to subpoena bank records of Jonathan and his wife, Patience.
The IPOB leader warned that his group would no longer tolerate the intimidation and harassment of former President Jonathan and his wife, Dame Patience.
He also said those who were calling for the accounts of Dr Jonathan and his wife were the real people looting funds in Nigeria. Kanu urged Jonathan to abandon his ‘gentleman toga’ and confront the government headlong.
