The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says he has ordered the installation of a closed-circuit television camera in his father’s compound in Afaraukwu, Abia State, southeast Nigeria, to monitor the activities of the Nigerian Army ahead of the burial ceremony of his late parents.
This online news platform had reported earlier that the parents of the IPOB leader, late HRH Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and his wife late Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Okwu-Kanu will be buried on Valentine’s day, Friday, February 14, 2020.
Naija News reports that ahead of the burial ceremony, the governor of Abia State, southeast Nigeria, Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed the state ministry of works to ensure the immediate reconstruction of Eze I. O. Kanu road in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia North Local Government Area (LGA).
Speaking on Radio Biafra during a live broadcast, Kanu threatened to kill the children of the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai and that of the Commissioner of Police in Abia State, Ene Okon, if any IPOB member is injured during the burial ceremony of his parents.
The IPOB leader revealed that CCTV cameras have been fixed in the compound ahead of the burial ceremony, adding that he needs evidence against the Nigerian Army.
Kanu warned that if any IPOB member is killed by the Nigerian Army, he would hunt down their children and submit himself for arrest after killing them.
His words: “We have fixed cameras everywhere. I need evidence to show to the world when they (Nigerian Army) come to my father’s compound to kill on the day of the funeral.
“CCTV cameras are everywhere in my father’s compound, the zoo Army don’t know we will be watching all their activities on that day. I am warning them, if any IPOB member is killed, we will retaliate. I will kill all their children and submit myself for arrest.
“If anything happens to any IPOB member on the 14th of February all your children will be killed. If they kill anybody in my father on the 14th of February all the children of the Army commanders will be killed.
“Commissioner Okon, I am saying this, put it on record if anybody dies in my father’s compound, all your children will be killed. All of you including Buratai, all your children will be killed. Every police commissioner, commanders, give me the addresses, I am giving you an order, get me their names. I will kill them if they kill anybody in my home town on the 14th of February, leave us alone, we are not armed.
“If you come to my parents’ funeral and shoot, we will kill all your children, if you like go and hide them in Saudi Arabia, we will find them and kill all your children. You will know what it means to buy a casket, your names will be wiped out. I will submit myself for arrest after we kill them,” the IPOB leader warned.
