The agitation for the restoration of Biafra championed largely by the Indigenous People Of Biafra [IPOB] under the leadership of Prince Nnamdi Kanu may have suffered bloody casualty through the invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home by the Nigerian military forces on September 14, 2017 but the resultant effects continue to linger.
Information made available to 247ureports.com reveals that the leader of the Biafra restoration group may have been gun down by the Nigerian military forces under the authorization of the leader of the Apex Igbo Organization, the Ohaneze Ndigbo, Mazi Nnia Nwodo along with the five south east governors and a former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu.
According to the brother to Nnamdi Kanu, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, the president of Ohaneze played a pivotal role in convincing the President into using military force to decimate the ‘noisy’ IPOB leader and his followers. According to Prince Kanu, the group of conspirators agreed to serve up Nnamdi Kanu as a sacrificial lamb to the federal government in exchange for the proposed restructuring of Nigeria.
“Nnia Nwodo made many trips to Abuja trying to convince President Buhari to buy into the plan to squash Nnamdi Kanu so that they can take over” said Prince Emmanuel Kanu as he explained that it was Nnia Nwodo who gave the nod for the five south east governors to proscribe the activities of IPOB.
Nnia Nwodo has been mentioned as one of the likely running mate to Alhaji Abubakar Atiku in the coming presidential election of 2019. Prince Emmanuel Kanu indicates that his political ambitions drove him against the will of his people. The call for no election by the IPOB was a deciding factor.
Prince Emmanuel Kanu queried why the Nigerian military force would use war-time machinery such as armored personnel carrier [APC] and other war-time vehicles and weapons to invade the home belonging to the parents of Nnamdi Kanu without a court order or an order for any known authority?
“The Nigerian military must produce the body of Nnamdi”
