Kanu's house under siege - IPOB, raises alarm over plot to assassinate him

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB) has said that the home of its leader , Nnamdi Kanu had come under siege by the Nigeria Army.

IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, claimed that the Army stationed Armored Personnel Carriers ( APC) around the home of Kanu, restraining  movement in and around the area.

The pro- Biafra group accused the Army of plotting to kill Kanu under the guise of Operation Python Dance , wondering why the operation would warrant placing siege on Kanu's home.
 
The statement read in part: " Soldiers  have surrounded our leader's house today, 12th September 2017 with the instructions to assassinate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB members who strongly believe and fight in the struggle for the liberation of Biafran people. 

"Right now, there are much tensions in Umuahia, the home town of Mazi Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigerian government  ceased Nnamdi Kanu' traveling documents because they want to kill him in Nigeria as it is now; they have perfected plans to assassinate him. But the killing of unarmed civilians in Biafranland including Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB must not be accepted by Biafrans both home and in diaspora."

IPOB further claimed that the Army had on Monday attacked Kanu at a military check point at Ubakala area of Umuahia.

"The Nigerian soldiers drafted to Biafranland to assassinate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other members of IPOB mainly came from the core North of Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebby, Gigawa, Kano, Kaduna and Kastina states.

" On 10th September been Sunday the Nigerian Army killed our members in Umuahia, yesterday been Monday 11th of September 2017 the  soldiers in Nigerian Army uniform attacked Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's convoy at Ubakala junction on his way going for an official assignment. The Nigerian Army fired live bullets at his vehicle including his convoy.

"It's a pity that in a democratic settings like this one in Nigeria can turn South Eastern Region into a war. Precisely the peaceful area of Ubakala junction, Isi Gate and Ibeku Nnamdi Kanu's home town has become a dangerous zone since the declaration of infamous of OPERATION PYTHON DANCE in the south East."


IPOB however said it would not be compelled to resort to arms struggle but called on the United Nations and the International Community to hold Nigeria responsible for any breakdown of law and order in South East.
