The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday, September 15, revealed it has uncovered another genocide plot in Umuahia, the ancestral home of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu’s house was allegedly attacked by soldiers on September 10, 2017. Further, the incident allegedly caused the disappearance of the IPOB leader and his parents.
The group blamed the state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, for stationing a “killer squad” in front of its leader’s compound.
Meanwhile, the disclosure was contained in a statement issued by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful. The group called on the international community and civilised citizens across the world to be aware of the plan.
Furthermore, it asked them to prevail on Ikpeazu and his collaborators to withdraw the squad. Failing this, IPOB declared that the Abia Governor should be held responsible for any loss of lives within the area.
Specifically, the statement partly read, “Another round of genocide looms at the front of our leader’s compound in Isiama Afara Ukwu Ibeku Umuahia, Abia State by Fulani terror group.
“IPOB intelligence unit is gathering information on killer squad stationed in front of our leader’s compound in Isiama Afaraukwu …The ancestral home of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu tonight.

“We are calling on international community and civilised citizens across the world to be aware and prevail upon Okezie Ikpeazu and his collaborators to withdraw their killer squad in front of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s compound.
“If anybody killed in Afaraukwu, Okezie Ikpeazu and co would be held accountable.”
Meanwhile, a criminal complaint has been lodged against Nnamdi Kanu, at the International Criminal Court (ICC), in The Hague, Netherlands.
The complaint dated September 2nd, 2019 was filed by one Thomas Carroll of GAYLORD POPP, LLC. Carroll was acting on behalf of the Incorporated Trustees of Make Nigeria Better Initiative (MNBI).
