On September 10, 2017 73 Comments

Reacting to the incident that occurred at the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu in Abia on Sunday, his lawyer Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor called on the international community to hold President Muhammadu Buhari responsible should anything happen to the IPOB leader.

In a statement, Mr Ejiofor accused the Buhari administration of attempting to take his client’s life.

“Just to alert the world that the Nigeria military personnel under the command of Chief of Army Staff is presently laying a siege on my client (Nnamdi Kanu) country home in Umuahia.

“They had continued to shoot sporadically into the air through which assault, about five of his family members were brutally wounded and some unfortunately killed. There is no doubt that the present deployment of troops to the South East is to haunt for my client and possibly eliminate him,” the statement said.

Mr Ejiofor added that if something goes wrong with his client’s life, the international would hold the country’s president responsible.

“Let the whole world know that if anything untoward happens to my client, that President Buhari and his Chief of Army Staff should be held responsible by the international Community.

“We are presently counting the number of casualties as the onslaught progress. The world should be immediately notified about the tension in Biafra land, created by the government in power. We must adopt all know the legal mechanism to resist the unconstitutional but violent approach in dealing with unarmed people merely operating within the confines of the law. Buhari must be held responsible.

“We are ready to present our case once more before the International Court of Justice. The families that lost their beloved ones in the last year May 29 violent attack by the military are yet to recover from the shock of losing their love ones. This situation must be arrested in time.”

    That is how Nigeria lost it all,
    Always falling for cheap baits.
    Biafrans knows the game,because international communities are watching the last struggle of a dying nation and the price Biafra is paying for freedom.
    Nnamdi Kanu is a name to reckon with in leadership and struggle , he knows his way.
    God bless Biafra,
    May they find the freedom that have cost them so much

    Most of these people contemplating war because Biafrans are asking to be let go cannot understand the world we live in now. Any attempt for anybody to attempt the annihilation of 1967 should be prepared to face not just those Igbo people but the world. Today truly we live in global village and such genocide will never be accepted in the modern world.

    Nnamdi kanu’s case is still in the court. Nigerian government got it all wrong again. I seen this as the first shoots to Mark the beginning of second Biafra war. Because, things will never be the same again, killings can never buy unity.

    NIGERIAN ARMY DID NOT ATTACK LEADER OF IPOB NNAMDI KANU’S HOME NOR KILL ANYONE

    The attention of 14 Brigade Nigerian Army, has been drawn to fictitious news going round especially on the social media that troops have invaded the home of Nnamdi Kanu and killed 3 persons.

    This is far from the truth. Rather, it was a group of suspected IPOB militants that blocked the road against troops of 145 Battalion while on show of force along FMC-Word Bank Road in Umuahia town, Abia State at about 6.00-6.30pm, today. They insisted that the military vehicles would not pass and started pelting the soldiers with stones and broken bottles to the point of injuring an innocent female passerby and a soldier, Corporal Kolawole Mathew.

    The troops fired warning shots in the air and the hoodlooms dispersed. No life was lost.

    Therefore the public are kindly enjoined to disregard the rumours going round and the fictitious photographs of purported victims of attack. Both the soldier and the innocent female passerby have been evacuated to the unit’s Medical Inspection Room and are receiving treatment.

    We would like to use this opportunity to warn mischief makers threatening the peace and security of the country through falsehood such as above.

    Members of the public are please requested to go about their lawful business and report any suspicious activity to the nearest police station or security outfit.

    You are please requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium.

    Thank you for your kind cooperation.
