Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Speaks On IPOB Members Attacking Igbo Leaders

Published

IPOB

The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has stated that the attack on Igbo leaders in foreign countries will continue.

Kanu made this known in a statement released to newsmen by the spokesperson of IPOB, Emma Powerful.

The pro-Biafra activist accused Igbo leaders of aiding the desecration of Igbo tradition and culture following the invasion of his father’s compound by soldiers during the ‘Operation Python Dance’ exercise.

Kanu alleged that the interest of the Igbo politicians was his death, that of IPOB, as well as the death of its dream of freedom for all.

The statement partly read, “These men instigated, financed and defended a full-scale bloody military invasion of Biafraland; they tagged Operation Python Dance that led to the torture and untimely death of over 600 Biafrans, 28 of which fell in my compound.

“These men sanctioned the desecration of the home of an Igbo tradition ruler by Fulani soldiers and did not care if my father HRM Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and my mother, who were home with me during the unprovoked invasion, is killed or not.

“In view of the Nuremberg encounter, it has become necessary for us to refresh our memories lest it succumbs to confusion and deliberate misinformation because most people, unlike we IPOB, are in the habit of excusing intolerable evil and wickedness but we not.

“Every perpetrator of evil, every purveyor of iniquity, every merchant of misery and every defender of injustice must and will be held to account. We will not relent until justice is served.

“Those with a conscience can now understand the root cause of our anger and why we won’t stop until they all pay dearly for their sins.”
