Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused the Nigerian Army of attempting to kill him over his determination to actualise Biafra.
He spoke after the after math of soldiers invading his home at Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, yesterday, an incident which left not less than seven people killed and several others injured.
Kanu said they shot sporadically, adding that their sole aim was to take his life.
Narrating the incident to Daily Sun, Kanu recalled he was resting when one of his relatives drew his attention to heavy presence of soldiers at the main entrance to his family home.

He said within few 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, in his response, said any attempt to kill his elder brother will spell doom for the country.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army has denied claims they attacked the Ipob leader’s residence, claiming rather that their convoy was attacked by the Biafra agitators.
