SAHARANEWS – An old video of late Emir Aliyu Mustapha, Lamido of Adamawa, has surfaced online. In the viral video, Emir Aliyu, noted that the people of Adamawa transcend from Cameroon.
This is following a claim by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who alleged Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the coming election is from Cameroon.
Kanu, had in his recent Radio Biafra broadcast from London, UK, claimed that Atiku who grew up in (Kojoli, Jada L.G.A of Adamawa State), is hails from Cameroon and therefore, not fit to seek for any political post in Nigeria. According to him, “Atiku is a Cameroonian, whose area of Adamawa was in Cameroon” , Kanu alleged.
Corroborating the story with an old footage of the late Lamido of Adamawa, Emir Aliyu Mustapha , who died in the evening hours of Saturday, 13th March 2010. A Nigerian twitter user, John Fanimokun @TallJohn who shared the “One minute and three seconds” video (1:03), captioned it;
“Emir Lamido of Adamawa had also confirmed Kanu’s uncovered story on Atiku’s Nationality in the past” .
Playing the video, Emir Aliyu, while addressing a conference, made it clear that his kingdom (Adamawa, transcend from the Republic of Cameroon).
