The pro-Biafran group in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Monday, threatened to attack the President should he set his foot in the southeast
“We (IPOB members) will die with him should he set his foot on the sacred land of Biafra.
“Tuesday 14th November 2017 will be recorded in history as a very bloody day should that Jubril masquerading as Buhari attempt to land on Biafran soil.”
