The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Nigerian government and military of withholding details on the whereabouts of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
One of our sources gathered that the group said it was convinced that Kanu may have been killed, lamenting that he has not been seen or heard, days after troops stormed his residence. The statement was contained in a statement by IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful on Monday, September 18.He said that he and other members of the group didn’t know Nnamdi Kanu and his parents’ whereabouts since last week invasion of his compound by the army.
The statement reads: “IPOB and its leadership worldwide under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to bring to the notice of the whole world that the whereabouts of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and parents are still unknown to mankind since the attack in his compound last week.
“IPOB has been searching for our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and parents nowhere to be found since last week, we are challenging the Nigerian army and police to produce our leader Mazi Nnamdi since it is a prerogative right for him to make statement inform his confidants and teeming members all over the world about his condition.
“For the army systematic withdrawal and deployment of police and the posting of police to every strategic places around his compound and the entire community proves that the Nigerian government knows the whereabouts of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whether he is alive or dead because the army has done the job they were sent to do by picking Nnamdi Kanu.
“Men and women of good conscience across the globe to prevail on Nigerian government and her security operatives especially the Nigerian army with the southeast governors to produce our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before it is too late, because we have gone so deep in search for our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu nowhere to be found.
