Police and soldiers attack my lawyer's house, killed three - Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, said that his lawyer's home was attacked by some men of the Nigerian police force and Nigerian Army on Monday in Anambra State.

In a statement made available by the IPOB leader himself in Akwa, the Anambra State capital, Nnamdi Kanu said three members of the IPOB were killed in the onslaught.

He once again called on the international communities to intervene  in the alleged intimidation of the Biafra people in Nigeria.

He added, “Confirmed reports indicate that a combined team of Nigeria police and military assassination squad invaded the home of my lawyer in Oraifite, Anambra State this morning Monday in a bid to kill him and his family.

“Sadly three innocent Biafrans were killed by this invading force at his residence.

“This comes on the heel of yet another killing of two IPOB family members who were peacefully gathering in Arondizuogu on Sunday December 1. Their bodies are still in the morgue.

“Police and army must know that the time is fast approaching when British diplomatic clout and protection may not be enough to shield them from the consequences of their daily crimes against innocent Biafrans.

“Attacking the home of my lawyer is a step too far.”

He continued, “There is a United Nations Mission, US Embassy, British High Commission and other highbrow foreign diplomatic presence in Nigeria, who should take note of these ugly developments and convey same to their home countries.

“It is their responsibility to ensure this wanton brutality, lawlessness and anarchy are duly noted.”

At then, the Police Public Relations Officer in Anambra State, Haruna Mohammed could not be reached for confirmation.
