Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned the raid on Nnamdi Kanu’s home by the officers of the Nigerian Army on Sunday.
Fani-Kayode called for restraint and an end to the “unprecedented violence”.
He tweeted: “I condemn the raid on Nnamdi Kanu’s home by the army. I call for restraint and I deplore the unprecedented violence that is being employed.
“3 people have been killed by the military and 20 wounded in their raid on Nnamdi Kanu’s home. This is wicked, barbaric and unacceptable. STOP!”
The Army allegedly invaded the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), barely 24 hours after it announced the start of its second phase of Operation Python Dance II in the South-Eastern states.
It was however, gathered that the military personnel, who stormed Kanu’s home with an armoured vehicle were resisted by some members of the pro-Biafra group.
Some IPOB were reportedly shot in the process.
According to the spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, about five youths were killed and about 30 were injured.
