The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has challenged Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari to do a live media chat to prove he is not a 'doppelgänger'.
Allnews reports that self-exiled Kanu has always maintained that President Buhari is dead but was replaced by an imposter “Jubril” from Sudan.
The Abia-born pro-Biafra leader has been using Twitter activism to propagate his rhetoric and views among the masses.
He claims that there are some unnamed ‘cabals’ in Aso Rock who are running the affairs of Nigeria.
On Friday, Kanu on his known Twitter handle alleged that the imposter from Sudan is 'destroying the lives and livelihoods of over 200 million people'.

Doppelgänger is an apparition or double of a living person.
Meanwhile, President Buhari has come under heavy criticism for failing to address the media as expected, especially when there are grave issues that need his attention.
Buhari's sole and last media chat with the Nigerian public was in December 2015.
Regarding the dreaded Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) which has claimed the lives of 58 people in Africa's most populous country, the 77-year-old has twice addressed Nigerians in national broadcasts.
