Kanu also ordered IPOB members to burn Nigeria to the ground if he is ever arrested by the Nigerian government.
He claimed that the government hired a look-alike Sudanese man named Jubril to come and stand in for Buhari.
The IPOB leader made the allegation in a video footage which surfaced online on Sunday, September 03, 2017.
In the footage, Kanu when addressing some IPOB supporters alleged that the man posing to be President Buhari was brought to the country after extensive surgery.
He said: “The man you are looking at on the television is not Buhari, he is from Sudan. After extensive plastic surgery they brought him back. The person was taught Buhari’s mannerisms and he came back deceiving all of you. I can stand and prove who I am but Buhari cannot do the same thing. He cannot deceive Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.”

Kanu accused the government of sponsoring what he called bunch of lies against him, adding that he had been provoked to speak.
He faulted the Sun newspaper for publishing a report which claimed he was on the run.
The IPOB leader said the worst mistake Buhari ever made was to arrest him.
“The worst mistake Buhari ever made was to arrest me. I will break the zoo into pieces. I am taking IPOB to Abuja on the 17th of next month for my court case. There will be 2 million people in Abuja. We take the battle to our enemies. You are under oath and by virtue of that oath you are under direct order from me, any day you hear I have been arrested, to burn down Nigeria to the ground," he said.
