The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Nigeria Army of plotting to arrest his followers.
In a post on his Twitter page, the wanted IPOB leader said the Army will conduct a surprise search in Abia State.
According to Nnamdi Kanu, “We received information that the Nigerian Army will launch surprise searches in hotels around Umuahia axis.
“They monitor most hotels hoping that top #IPOB servants may come in early before the burial date. Stay safe & avoid being kidnapped.”
Naija News recalls that ahead of the burial ceremony of his parents, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has set aside today, Saturday, January 8 to address pro-Biafra agitators whom he refers to as “Biafrans.”
This online news platform had reported earlier that the parents of the IPOB leader, late HRH Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and his wife late Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Okwu-Kanu will be buried on Valentine’s day, Friday, February 14, 2020.
Ahead of the burial ceremony, the governor of Abia State, southeast Nigeria, Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed the state ministry of works to ensure the immediate reconstruction of Eze I. O. Kanu road in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia North Local Government Area (LGA).
While IPOB members are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Mr Kanu for the burial ceremony, the Afaraukwu community in Umuahia North council area of Abia State, the home town of Mr Kanu, have handed out a warning to IPOB members to stay away, appealing for peace at the burial.
