The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that the Nigerian government in collaboration with Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, is planning to kill members of Nnamdi Kanu’s family and other people living in his compound in Isiama, Afaraukwu in Umuahia.
A statement by Emma Powerful, Media and Publicity secretary of IPOB, stated on Saturday that some armed security personnel have been stationed in front of the compound.
According to the statement, “Another round of genocide looms again at the front of our leader’s compound in Isiama Afara ukwu Ibeku Umuahia, Abia State by Fulani terror group.
“IPOB intelligence unit is gathering information how Okezie Ikpeazu and co-stationed Fulani terrorists in front of our leader’s compound in Isiama Afaraukwu the ancestral home of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu tonight.
“The Fulani assassins in a white Toyota Hilux loitering in front of our leader’s house in Isiama-Afaraukwu tonight better retrace their steps. Whoever sent them will be exposed and held accountable. The Efulefus that invited them on this dark day are in for one almighty shock.
“Okezie Ikpeazu and [the] federal government [of] Nigeria headed by Fulani stationed these terrorists to eliminate innocent people of Afaraukwu Ibeku and anybody seen around Nnamdi Kanu’s compound.
“We are calling on international community and civilised citizens across the world to be aware and prevail upon Okezie Ikpeazu and his collaborators to withdraw their killer squad in front of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s compound, If anybody [is] killed in Afaraukwu, Okezie Ikpeazu and co would be held accountable.”
