JUST IN: Outraged Nnamdi Kanu Reacts To Killings Of Worshippers In Anambra [Video]

On August 6, 2017 69 Comments

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has reacted to the killings of over fifty worshippers at a Catholic Church in Anambra State.

Addressing some of the members of his group, the IPOB leader blamed Ohanaeze for the killings, stating that had the apex Igbo socio cultural group not denounced IPOB, Hausa/Fulani whom he accused of the killing wouldn’t have had the nerves to invade their land to carry out such dastardly act.

Using the incident as a case-study, Kanu buttressed on the need why the Anambra governorship election slated for November 18 should be boycotted.

According to him, a sovereign Biafra nation is the only solution to the unwarranted killings and marginalisation that has been happening in the region.

    A hausa man becoming the cp in an igbo state. Guys you are finished for this can’t happen in tje north. Your leaders have sold you out. If you have the strength fight this is the right time. We in abuja are doing our best too. The truth is that these guys don’t think like humans. The best way to kill them is when you start thinking like carnibals and barbarians.

  2. Musa Joshua says:

    I wonder why a hausa man will be the CP of the igbos. This can’t hapen in the north. Igbos be wise. You have been sold by ur Leaderss.

    First Hand Information On What Happened At Anambra State Today, As Ejike Ofoegbu Arrived Anambra From Aba

    Please over look the police report, Ejike Ofoegbu said

    Loveth Gift narrated

    “We all were in the church during the 6am morning mass today, we saw two cars that drove into the church; because it was a Church premises we over looked it and we considered them to be people that came for morning mass(service). But to the surprise of everyone, the car halted at the center of the gate, meaning you cannot close the gate, since it is open already.

    “The driver came out of the car pretending he was fixing a problem; so everyone still ignored the drama happening outside the premises.

    “Suddenly, some men came out from the car, fully armed, all in Army uniform. I was lucky because I was sitting at the back, just beside the door, but I was clearly seeing what was happening. The sky was cloudy and everywhere seemed dark; no one saw what they were carrying, whether it was gun, but surely they were fully equipped.

    “They immediately rushed to the front door. I was too lucky to jump the fence, but before I had jumped, I heard gun shot everywhere in the building. They obstructed the front gate, because for women that is their only route to escape. That was why women were killed more than men. Children were killed as well, many were seriously injured.

    “After I had escaped, I started making calls to link my church members who were in the church, but they were not picking up; not knowing they were dead already.

    The gun men were not igbos, because their language were not igbo, the government should stop lying, I heard they said That, they gun Men were flashing touch light on us, but it a lie, because the whole church was so lighted that even from outside you will see who is inside. Even at that, if they were really flashing touch light to know who is their target, those that were killed, are they their target.

    Like I said before and I will say it again, I was at the back door, I saw all that happened, they were with Army uniform, face covered, standing at the Front door, holding their trigger, and shooting at anything that moves.

    When the police came, I was waiting for them to ask questions of what happened, so that I will explain, but they were busy taking pictures of the dead ones, without knowing the fact

    “Not too long after they had gone, I went back to the church. I was shocked with what I saw; my Mother was lying dead! Many people were unconscious but later succumbed to death.

    “After about one hour of the killings, the Police arrived the church. Two hours later, the Governor, Willie Obiano arrived too. Everyone was shocked, wandering how the perpetrators stormed in Army uniform. Questions began to arise: “Who gave them the Army uniform?” Who gave them the Army car?”
    Surely jihad is here, and everyone have to defend him/her self.

    A woman who still survived the mayhem said, “All I could remember is that I was sitting at the front when some people in Army uniform invaded the Church and started shooting at everyone. They just held the trigger and fired at everyone they sighted. I managed to hide under the seat but was shot in the leg.

    “A boy was shot in head, his brain bursted, and blood spilled everywhere – even at my face.”

    An 18-year-old man, Agugu Adau, has allegedly killed his mother for refusing to give him a “disappearing” charm he claimed was his inheritance from his late herbalist father.
    A family source told the News Agency of Nigeria that Agugu committed the crime at his Kisaghyip village farm in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau.
    The source said that Agugu, after killing his mother, removed N20,000 from her blood-sucked clothes and used it to buy a mobile phone, a shirt and a pair of slippers.
    Tyopev Terna, spokesman of the Plateau Police Command, confirmed that the suspect was being held, but declined further comments.
    “Investigation is ongoing. The details are not ready. Please understand with us and be patient,” he told NAN on phone.
    But Agugu, who spoke with our correspondent, said that he killed the woman because she refused to give him a charm that was his inheritance from his father.
    “When I was 14 years old, my late father, who was a native doctor, showed me a charm that enabled him to disappear and reappear at will. He promised to handover the charm to me when I turn 18.
    “On his dying bed four years ago, he gave my mother the charm and asked her to give me when I turn 18. But I am now 18 and she has refused to give it to me.
    “On this fateful day at the farm, I asked her about it, but she threatened to throw the charm into the river, if I disturbed her too much.
    “Her response infuriated me and I suddenly felt that she was of no value as a mother. I immediately slaughtered her with the knife I was using to harvest potatoes.
    “After slaughtering her, I dumped her body in the bush,” he said.
    David Adau, senior brother to the suspect, has, however, dismissed the suspect’s claim that he killed the mother because of a charm.
    “Prior to the incident, the family had faced several problems with Agugu. He was fond of stealing and causing trouble.
    “I believe he killed our mother because of the N20,000 I gave her a day before the incident. I work at the mines in Barkin-Ladi, and usually give my earnings to our mother to keep for me.
    “I handed over the money to my mother in his presence; in fact, when I gave her the money, she expressed fear that Agugu could attack her to get the money. He has proved her right,” David said.
    David said that on his return from work a day after the incident, he asked after the mother but Agugu said he did not know of her whereabouts.
    “He said he did not know where my mother was. Later in the day, I saw him with a new mobile phone, a new shirt and slippers, and I became curious.
    “I asked him (suspect) where he got them from, but he could not give me satisfactory answers.
    “Other family members joined me and we kept pestering him over our mother, but he insisted he knew nothing.
    “Three days later, I invited the police to question my brother. That worked immediately as he confessed to killing her,” he said.
    David said that the suspect later led family members and the police to the farm where they saw the already decomposing corpse of the woman.

    MI, think this is the high time the BIA, should set perimeter to checkedmate the activities of gullible armed-strugglers in Biafra lands in-order to avoid this kinds of babaric act.

  9. Mohammed Danyerwa says:

    It is IPOB.May be the pastor is against their biafran nonsense.This is not the first time they are attacking ppl and politicians in church.Mind you,the want to end xtianity and introduce judaism.This is just the beginning.That is what you get when you keep preaching hatred and violence.

  10. Godwin Idam says:

    The only way out is to make sure that all zoo armies and police leave Biafran land because these are the hausas/fulanies boko haram in uniform killing Biafrans all in the name of herdsmen

  11. Mayor Nelson Iteji Ondoma says:

    So fulanis can come to the center of biafra republic and kill people at will and no biafran saw them? Did they drop from the sky? Where did they hide in biafra land after this barbaric act? It then means they have biafra collaborators.

  12. Julius Nnalue says:

    true talk my brother,you have done your best for igbo,leave d rest for god,the people you are fighting for many of them do not believe in your cause because of what they are gaining in this zoo,one thing is for sure which i believed,that is none of my family member will be killed by hausa person seriously,i mean it and i swear,if it happened,i will destroy the whole north
