Nigeria military personnel under the command of the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai laid a siege on the country home of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu in Umuahia. According to Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the military had on Sunday, September 10, shot sporadically into the air through which about five of Kanu’s family members were brutally wounded and some unfortunately killed.
He said: “There is no doubt that the present deployment of troops to the South East is to haunt for my client and possibly eliminate him. Let the whole world know that if anything untoward happen to my client, that president Buhari and his Chief of Army Staff should be held responsible by the international Community.”
As at the the time of filing this report the number of casualties from the incident is still counting.
“The world should be immediately notified about the tension in Biafra land, created by the Government in power. We must adopt all know legal mechanism to resist the unconstitutional but violent approach in dealing with unarmed people merely operating within the confines of 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 29th violent attack by the military are yet to recover from the shock of losing their love ones. This situation must be arrested in time,” Ejiofor said.
