This marks the first time he visited the region gripped by secessionist agitation and anti-Buhari sentiments since his inauguration in 2015.

Buhari arrived in Ebonyi State where he was received by the governor and other top brass of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Recall the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in a statement released by its spokesperson Emma Powerful, warned that "today will be recorded in history as a very bloody day should that Jubril masquerading as Buhari attempt to land on Biafran soil".

He will also be conferred with two traditional chieftaincy titles by traditional rulers in the state before rounding off the event with a dinner later in the night.

"I am overwhelmed with joy over the show of love and solidarity of Enugu residents to our admirable and loving President as he visits the South- East; which Enugu State is the capital of the zone", the Enugu state Governor said.

TheNewsGuru reports President Buhari was conferred with the title of Enyioma 1 of Ebonyi and Ochioha Ndi Igbo 1.

Buhari's visit was preceded by threats of attacks against him by IPOB members. They are pushing for a seperate Republic of Biafra, an earlier struggle that 50 years ago led to the loss of over a million lives.

He said, "If the President believes women should not rule over men, that it is northern believe not for all Nigerian".
