Nigeria's first lady, Aisha Buhari, has blamed the activities of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB on President Muhammadu Buhari's prolonged health vacation.

In a report by TheCable, the wife of the president reportedly stressed that Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), gained grounds while her husband was receiving medical attention in London.

Mrs Buhari reportedly said: "As a result of the president spending several months outside Nigeria, a 40-year-old man who was still living in his father’s house created a state out of a state and that is a major set back for the country.”

The first lady reportedly made this known while speaking at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday, October 9, 2017.
