Following deadly and repeated attempts from the Nigerian military to invade the it’s leader, Prince Nnamdi Kanu’s home, thousands of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have stormed Umuahia Abia state residence of the leader in a show of support and solidarity.
The IPOB members, some of whom wore the Biafra colors, chanted solidarity songs reaffirming their unflinching support for their leader, Kanu and vowing never to go back in their struggle for freedom.
Recall that the Nigerian military had on Sunday and Tuesday invaded the country home of Prince Nnamdi Kanu in what it described as a normal routine exercise.
The ‘routine exercise’ allegedly claimed the lives of three IPOB members with many other injured.
Opinion leaders in the South-East have since called on the Buhari-led Federal Government and the Nigerian military to withdraw its troop from engaging unarmed and peaceful youths in the South-East.
They argued that the military operation was not necessary for there was nothing to warrant it. They argued that rather than maintain the peace which the area has been notable for, the military incursion has created tension and has led to the death of a number of youths in the area.
