Awka- THE Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Wednesday called on the United Nations, UN, mission in Nigeria and the government of the United Kingdom, UK, to prevail on the Nigerian government to produce its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who, it alleged, has been missing since the attack on his house in Umuahia penultimate week.
IPOB media and publicity secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said in a statement that Kanu, who incidentally holds British citizenship, had not been seen since a detachment of soldiers stormed his residence on14th September, 2017.
The statement said: “Ever since the brutal assault that left 28 persons dead inside his compound, including two of his cousins, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, along with his parents , His Royal Majesty Eze Sir Israel Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Kanu, has not been seen.
“The video footage of the assault and the extent of destruction wreaked on his family home are in the public domain. Video clips and photographs of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s bedroom riddled with bullet holes from the guns of the Nigerian soldiers that stormed the palace are evident.
“The soldiers also took away a lot of valuable materials from the palace. It is the duty of the civilized nations to ask President Buhari, General Buratai and the governors of the South East what they did with our leader because we will not stop until justice is done. The world has a moral duty and obligation to put an end to dictatorial regimes such as we are witnessing in Nigeria today.”
The statement described the ongoing Exercise Python Dance II in the South East as genocide, accusing the governors of the South East of collaborating with the Nigerian government to unleash mayhem against unarmed people.
The group also accused the Information Minister, Mr. Lai Mohammed of twisting the facts on the matter.
