‘The Army Came, Killed 28 People And Left With Their Corpses; We Haven’t Seen Nnamdi Kanu Since Then’ – Human Rights Lawyer Claims
As the uncertainties about the whereabouts of the embattled leader of the Pro-Biafra group the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu rumbles on; there continue to be speculations, claims and counter-claims as to where Kanu really is.
The latest in this series of statements is the one made recently by a Human Rights Lawyer, Maxwell Opara.
In Opara’s opinion, the Nigerian Army are in the best position to comment and reveal the whereabouts of the missing IPOB leader.

This is because according to him, men of the Force visited his home on September 14th, 2017 and killed 28 people and also left with their corpses. Opara claims that Nnamdi Kanu has not been heard from since that day.
Also, in his statements to journalists of NIGERIA NEWS in Abuja, the lawyer said that the Chief of Army Staff and the office of the Director of Military Intelligence should be questioned over the disappearance of the IPOB leader.
In his words: “When the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria said that Nnamdi Kanu violated his bail conditions which is normal, yes they have the right to say it. They went further to apply for summons asking the court to revoke the bail of Nnamdi Kanu.
“While we are waiting to hear their application on the 7th of October, 2017, the military went to his house on the 11th September with an armoured car and besieged the place and people were asking why, why? Why should that happen?
“They left only for them to come back on the 14th September 2017 and killed every living thing in that house- dog, fowl, lizard, human being- everything they killed, 28 persons were killed and they left with their corpses. I am talking about the Nigerian Army. Since then, we have not heard of Nnamdi Kanu.
“We heard of him last when he called the principal Counsel Ejiofor complaining of the way his house was surrounded by the military. When Ejiofor started calling the line back, up till now, it could not go through. Whether he is dead or alive we do not know.
“It is a very simple thing. Why are we being naïve? Why are Nigerians behaving like this? Even the journalists are not helping matters. Nobody has gone to ask the Chief of Army Staff or Director of Military Intelligence or the Army Public Relations Officer, why should they bring an armoured car to his compound?
“They have a very simple case, you can’t intimidate them. Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has filed his action asking the army to produce Kanu.”
