Social media posts in Nigeria are claiming that US President Joe Biden, the purported recipient of a $700 million campaign contribution from the west African nation, had disrespected the country by allowing separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu to enter the United States. This is false; Biden did not accept any money from the Nigerian government since US laws do not allow presidential candidates to receive campaign contributions from foreign nations, while there is no known ban against Kanu in the United States.
