Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to refer to President Muhammadu Buhari as “Jubril of Sudan” after his “live” national broadcast on #EndSARS protests.

Naija News had reported earlier that President Buhari addressed Nigerians on Thursday evening following the Lekki massacre of unarmed peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

During the speech, Buhari failed to address the shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army but rather ordered that the protests against police brutality that rocked various cities across the nation before the Lekki massacre on Tuesday.

President Buhari said: “I, therefore, call on our youths to discontinue the street protests and constructively engage government in finding solutions.

“Your voice has been heard loud and clear and we are responding.”

Apparently displeased with the President’s address, Nigerians took to Twitter to refer to Buhari as “Jubril”, a name given to the Nigerian leader by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous of Biafra (IPOB).

Naija News reports that since Kanu resurfaced in Israel in October 2018, he has been alleging that President Buhari is an impostor whose name is Jubril Al-Sudanni of Sudan, a claim which the President quashed after the IPOB leader presented what he described as “scientific proof.”

On Thursday, Nigerians backed Nnamdi Kanu’s claims that President Buhari is Jubril o Sudan” on Twitter with many asking “Jubril to leave so Buhari can take over as Nigeria’s President”.
