IPOB urges National Assembly to sack Buhari, threatening to violate the city if he stays on

 Secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of alleged human rights violation and breach of the constitution before and after his swearing-in as a
democratically elected president, calling on the National Assembly to invoke and activate section 143 of the constitution to effect his removal.

In a statement issued by its spokespersons, Mr. Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, the group warned that without the removal of Buhari, the disintegration of Nigeria into three nations may take a violent path which may end up hurting internal and external stakeholders in Nigeria.
Listing three reasons to justify its call, the group said, “Recall that on the 29th of May 2015, Buhari took Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Office of President which includes non-interference in the discharge of the duties of other arms government. However, he told the world during his Media Chat of December 30, 2015, that Nnamdi Kanu and Sambo Dasuki will never be released and this was after the courts have ordered their unconditional release.

“Buhari’s comment was not only a violation of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution but it is also in violation of Part-I Section-9 of the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution which states that ‘A public officer shall not do or direct to be done, in abuse of his office, any arbitrary act prejudicial to the rights of any other person knowing that such act is unlawful or contrary to any government policy.”
