JUST IN: Finally, Nnamdi Kanu Reacts To Army Invasion On His Home

On September 11, 2017 83 Comments

Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Nigerian Army of attempting to kill him over his determination to actualise Biafra.

He spoke after the alleged invasion of his home at Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, where some persons were allegedly killed and scores injured.

Soldiers reportedly stormed his home at about 6.30pm yesterday.

Kanu said they shot sporadically, adding that their sole aim was to take his life.

Narrating the incident to Daily Sun, Kanu recalled he was resting when one of his relatives drew his attention to heavy presence of soldiers at the main entrance to his family home.

He said within few minutes, “the soldiers started shooting sporadically and, in the process, wounded many people within the vicinity.

“Their action was a crude show of power on innocent and defenceless people of Biafra”.

Kanu, however, called on his members “to remain calm”.

Also reacting, Kanu’s younger brother Emmanuel, in his response, said any attempt to kill his elder brother will spell doom for the country.

    Unity of Nigeria is not by force,it is by mutual agreements, Military occupation of South East is illegal, senseless and undemocratic. IPOB is not violence group or armed in their democratic agitation.Provoking them to arm struggling is what Nigeria army is doing right now by their military occupation and illegal confrontations.Give them referendum that is their demand

    Using force to keep people together is slavery.

    President Buhari and the Army should remember that Sometimes last year the Civilians of Turkey over powered the military and their tank.

    Last month the citizens also over powered the military in Togo.

    Well Mr Buhari lacks strategy and thinking head. He is dumb, his NIA chief is dumb, his Service men are dumbest. His NSA is worst dumb.

    A Tyrant don’t listen to advice.

    If Buhari should force the Southeast to war. It will escalate to all Southern Region. It will be out of control and he can’t manage it.

    And the only solution to ending such war is dialogue that will birth referendum and a country will be born out of Nigeria.

    You people should go and tell him. Thank you.

    [9/11, 09:21] Bro Abdul Mali: BROKEN NEWS NUGGET- Army Was Kept Out Of The City Under GEJ-PDP.

    I remember vividly Ondo re-election of Ex Gov Mimiko. The Nigerian Army’s mandate was restricted to the boundaries of the State, those entering and going out of Ondo State. Not one Soldier in the city.

    Do you all remember what Jonathan-PDP had to go through just to extend the STATE OF EMERGENCY in the North East? He needed permission from a PDP NASS. The approval didn’t come on a platter of gold as he was grilled and questioned why Soldiers should still be on the street of the NORTH EAST around Civilian population. Mind you North East was a terrorist zone.

    NASS, PLEASE DO SOMETHING. THE MILITARIZATION OF NIGERIA IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL .

    APC AND THEIR ARMY ( THIS IS NOT NIGERIAN ARMY) KEEP SPITTING ON THE CONSTITUTION.

There are educated and sane northerners who reason and are not Cows, I am one at least, let there be a balance, our differences should not cause hate.

    I am reading all the shameless comments here by Hausa foolani boko Harams. I can’t stop imagining which part of pit of hell they where manufactured from. All of u Hausa boko Haram making noise here are just hallucinating because we Biafran’s are the one beating the drum and u bastards and ur Buhari are dancing to our drum and that dance will lead u fools to ur end soon. Nigeria is finally coming to and end. Watch and see for urselves how it unfolds. U think u can beat the intelligence of IPOB world wide? U think its Nnamdi Kanu u are fighting? He is just an instrument in the hand of IPOB. He is doing the job he was sent to do. The bigger fight is coming systematically. When the time comes we shall see. Killing Nnamdi Kanu will not safe the zoo called Nigeria because he is just one person and more deadly others are waiting to take charge. Nnamdi is just God fearing and gentle if u people don’t know.

    The issue is very very surprise, so we Igbo’s are very very important, one maga here talking about Bible does he know how Israel fight for their freedom? Must we be Nigerian, you love us so much I swear, this love is what will put you guys to shame. My brothers ignore all this fake profile commenting here, is not their business if we choose to die or have our own nation.
