Naija News reports that the former Minister stated this while reacting to a post from IPOB leader, Kanu.

The wanted IPOB leader had in a post on Twitter warned that the people of the south-east are ready to restore Biafra.

Reacting to the post on Saturday, Fani-Kayode asked the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to deproscribe IPOB.

Fani-Kayode wrote: “This is a chilling and sinister warning. I know Mazi Nnamdi Kanu well & he does not speak lightly or make empty threats. I advise  Buhari to take his words seriously.”
