They urged members to apprehend the president whom they claim is a clone known as Jubril and not actually Buhari.
Buhari who leaves Abuja on Sunday for Japan will be participating in the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) holding in the City of Yokohama, August 28-30, 2019.

A statement signed by IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Friday reads: .
“The formidable IPOB family in Japan is hereby placed on direct order to ensure the impostor Jubril Al-Sudani, masquerading as the late dictator Buhari, is arrested and handed over to the authorities when he sets foot on Japanese soil.
He is not only a fake president, he is wanted for mass murder and crimes against humanity for his role in previous and ongoing genocide in Biafraland. Under Japanese law an impostor is a common criminal and subject to citizens arrest.
International diplomatic protocol as it relates to visiting heads of state is not applicable in this instance because whoever Abba Kyari is sending to Japan is not the real Buhari. We must make sure he is apprehended and handed over to the police in Japan.
Any legal fall-out emanating from any confrontation will end up in a Japanese court where we will be able to establish before the world that Jubril is indeed a fake Buhari.”
