The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has raised alarm over the presence of some uniformed men in his Isiama-Afara Ukwu village.
Recall that Kanu had ordered members of IPOB worldwide to observe a minute silence in honour of its members who were ‘killed’ in 2017 by soldiers that stormed his father’s compound.
Our reporter gathered that the order which came through a broadcast from Kanu Friday evening was received with mixed feelings by residents and visitors as many of them feared that there could be procession on the streets of Aba and Umuahia on Saturday.
Information has it that some armed men dressed in military uniforms said to be acting on intelligence report were seen around the country home of the IPOB leader, Isiama- Afaraukwu in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State.
But Kanu who may be acting on information from his men around his house in a tweet on his personal handle; @MaziNnamdiKanu, tweeted “The Fulani assassins in a white Toyota Hilux loitering in front of my house in Isiama-Afaraukwu tonight better retrace their steps. Whoever sent them will be exposed and held accountable. The Efulefus that invited them on this dark day are in for one almighty shock.”
