There is a statement making the rounds to the

statements that are contrary to his original stance
on national matters and are found disturbing by his
admirers, supporters and followers.
Some other versions of the rumour have it that he
made the statement during his visit to Chief Femi
While we are proud of having hosted the
courageous IPOB leader when he paid a visit to FFK
as part of his “Thank you tour”, we wish to state
