Men of the Nigerian army reportedly attacked the residence of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, at Ibeku Umuahia, Abia State, on Sunday.

Unconfirmed report says 3 persons were injured in the attack.
The whereabout of Mr. Kanu is currently unknown.

Mr Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in a statement accused the Buhari administration of attempting to take his client’s life.
“Just to alert the world that the Nigeria military personnel under the command of Chief of Army Staff is presently laying a siege on my client (Nnamdi Kanu) country home in Umuahia.
“They had continued to shot sporadically into the air through which assault, about five of his family members were brutally wounded and some unfortunately killed. There is no doubt that the present deployment of troops to the South East is to haunt for my client and possibly eliminate him,” the statement said.
Mr Ejiofor added that if something goes wrong with his client’s life, the international would hold the country’s president responsible.
“Let the whole world know that if anything untoward happens to my client, that President Buhari and his Chief of Army Staff should be held responsible by the international Community.
“We are presently counting the number of casualties as the onslaught progress.  The world should be immediately notified about the tension in Biafra land, created by the government in power. We must adopt all know the legal mechanism to resist the unconstitutional but violent approach in dealing with unarmed people merely operating within the confines of the 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 29 violent attack by the military are yet to recover from the shock of losing their love ones. This situation must be arrested in time.”


  1. You were warned. This are the Biafra security service members. Where is the Kanu now. Maybe in Uk.

  2. From the words of their lawyer, they (the Army) shot sporadically in the air!! Then they are not there to kill or attack them but to maintain order. Truth be said IPOB has been treading the path of war and perdition but the Federal govt has exercised more restraint than expected so, let IPOB imbibe caution and restraint by common sense (though they say it is not common).
