The Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) have insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari should tell her what he did with its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, if he (Kanu) was no longer alive.
The group had since an alleged attack on Kanu’s home on 14th September declared Kanu and his parents missing, insisting that they were abducted by soldiers who invaded his compound on the order of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai.
IPOB said it fears that its leader and his parents may have been harmed while in the custody of the Nigerian Army.
A press release by the publicity secretary of IPOB, Mr Emma Powerful called the urgent attention of the United Nations to prevail on President Buhari and Lt. Gen. Buratai to produce Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or tell the world what has become of him.
The release said, “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who incidentally holds British citizenship has been missing since a detachment of exclusively Northern Islamic officers stormed his residence on Thursday 14, September 2017.
“Ever since the brutal assault that left 28 people dead inside his compound including two of his cousins, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu along with his parents His Royal Majesty Eze Sir Israel Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Kanu has not been seen.”
The group said the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed can twist facts as much as he likes, but the fact remained that somebody somewhere ordered the unprovoked military invasion of Kanu’s house where hundreds of rounds of bullets were discharged and 28 people killed.
