Mr Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has revealed that he has installed a total of 38 closed-circuit cameras (CCTV) in hidden locations at his family house and within the compound, as preparations are ongoing for his parents’ burial.
Naija News understands that the purpose of the camera was to present evidence during the burial in case security agents start to manhandle attendees and claim that IPOB members originated the violence.
Kanu, however, added that the police have found two of the cameras and have destroyed them, but stated that 36 others were still well concealed.
Kanu who raised the alarm over the destruction of the cameras said, “Let it be known that Abia State Police under the command of Ene Okon, in collaboration with DSS, have proceeded to remove two CCTV cameras installed in and around my hometown to pre-empt and record any terror attack by the Nigerian Army & Police as was the case in September 2017.
“The entire civilized world must ask the regime in Aso Rock and Abia State Police Commissioner, Mr Ene Okon why they are destroying CCTV cameras on private properties in my village if they have nothing to hide.
“So far, they succeeded in destroying two cameras, but I wish to assure them there are 36 other well-concealed cameras recording and relaying in real time their activities in and around my home.”
The Poice had earlier warned members of IPOB to steer clear of the venue of the burial, to avoid trouble.
However, the IPOB had insisted that its members will pay last respect to the late parents of their leader, adding that they plan to do so without violence.
