Buhari reportedly cancels Enugu visit after IPOB threat

Earlier this week, former minister of Power and chairman of the SEESS, Bart Nnaji, confirmed that Nigerian leader Muhammadu Buhari will be present at the South-East Economic and Security Summit (SEESS) holding in Enugu today Thursday December 22.
 
However, in another development, President Buhari is said to have made a u-turn on the visit. A reliable source with knowledge of the matter disclosed that the retired military general has cancelled his Enugu visit and would be represented at the event instead.

Recall that pro-Biafran group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), released a statement telling the Nigerian leader to “stay clear” of Enugu State and Southeast Nigeria.

Members of the group are holding a peaceful protest in Enugu as of the time of filing this report (see photos).
