How soldiers raided my residence – Nnamdi Kanu

Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Nigerian Army of attempting to kill him over his determination to actualise Biafra.

He spoke after the alleged invasion of his home at Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, where some persons were allegedly killed and others injured.

Soldiers reportedly stormed his home at about 6.30pm on Sunday.

Kanu said they shot sporadically, adding that their sole aim was to take his life.

Narrating the incident to a national newspaper, Kanu recalled that he was resting when one of his relatives drew his attention to the presence of soldiers at the main entrance to his family home.

He said within minutes, “the soldiers started shooting sporadically and, in the process, wounded many people within the vicinity.

“Their action was a crude show of power on innocent and defenceless people of Biafra.”

Kanu, however, called on his members “to remain calm”.

Also reacting, Kanu’s younger brother Emmanuel said any attempt to kill his elder brother will spell doom for the country.

Meanwhile, the army has denied the alleged invasion.
