Listen to article

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari following the resignation of his Peruvian counterpart, President Manuel Merino of Peru, after a violent protest claimed the lives of two people.

He took to both his Twitter handle and Official Facebook page to mock Buhari, asking him to follow the example of the Peru President and resign in the wake of the #EndSARS protests that rocked the country last month, culminating in the loss of lives and properties in different parts of Nigeria.

‘Peru President Merino resigns following street protests but in Nigeria, following #EndSARS protests, Nigeria president is either persecuting and freezing bank accounts of Nigerian youths or slaughtering them at #Obigbo and Nigerians are seemingly tolerating it,’ Kanu wrote on his twitter handle and Facebook page.

Merino who was Peru’s President on an interim basis, threw in the towel on Sunday, November 16, after demonstrations calling for his removal turned violent, which led to a police crackdown that left at least two people dead and a dozen more wounded in the process. He was a former speaker of congress who took over from the former President Martin Vizcaara, who was removed from office last Monday through impeachment over bribery allegations which he denies.

Many politicians have called for the resignation of President Manuel Merino after a violent crackdown on demonstrators, who are mainly young people. According to a report , twelve ministers among the newly appointed cabinet of Manuel Merino resigned on Sunday in protest to police brutality against protesters. Thousands of protesters took to the street to protest against the impeachment of the former president, 57 years Vizcaraara; calling the impeachment parliamentary coup. Report says that Vizcarara was enjoying support from many people because of his stand and moves to reform. Two students Jack Pintado, 22 and Inti Sotelo, 24 were killed during the protest.

Mr Manuel Merino in a televised broadcast said ‘I want the whole country to know that I am resigning’.
