The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has once again accused the federal government of keeping its leader, Nnamdi Kanu in an unknown place.
The group is asking the FG to explain the whereabouts of its leader who has disappeared since the alleged invasion of his home by military men in Abia State last year.
Recalled that military officers were allegedly reported to have stormed Kanu’s resident in Afaraukwu, Umuahi, in Abia late last year and abducted the Biafran leader to an unknown destination.
The group had again raised the question on the whereabouts of Kanu yesterday when its executive met with some Igbo leaders in Enugu yesterday.
The spokesperson for the group, Aloy Ejimakor spoke to reporters after the meeting which was held at Zodiac Hotel in Enugu.
According to Ejimakor, “The fate of our brother Nnamdi Kanu must be addressed. If the witch cried at night and the baby died in the morning, the witch must have killed the baby.”
“Nnamdi Kanu did not rise and disappear. He is not the biblical prophet Elijah that got transfigured to heaven alive.”
“Something happened; some people came to his house and those people are the men of the Nigerian Armed Forces. They (military) should speak to Nigerians and say, we went there, shot at people.”
“Maybe we shot at him or wounded him. Let them say that much then we know that the reconciliation has begun.”
“So I recommend that if it is the truth and reconciliation commission that the federal government want to constitute, let them do that. But some of these things need to be ventilated well.”
“You cannot just come to Igboland or any other part of the country and take their dignity away, and behaved as if nothing happened.”
“The dignity of the Igboland and Biafra has been taken away since 2017 in the incident that took place at Afaraukwu, Umuahia. It shouldn’t happen. It needs some explanation, an apology is warranted”.
Also present at the meeting was Professor Ben Nwabueze, who noted that the Igbo leaders are already working on strategies in order to ensure that IPOB and the Federal Government are reconciled.
According to Nwabueze, the Igbo leaders are basically concerned with the peace and unity of the country.
