The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that the police and army on Monday invaded the house of his lawyer, in Anambra State.
In a statement authored by himself and made available to our correspondent in Awka, the Anambra State, Kanu said three IPOB members were killed in the alleged onslaught.
He called on world bodies to intervene in the alleged intimidation of IPOB members in Nigeria.
He wrote, “Confirmed reports indicate that a combined team of Nigeria police and military assassination squad invaded the home of my lawyer in Oraifite, Anambra State this morning Monday in a bid to kill him and his family.
“Sadly three innocent Biafrans were killed by this invading force at his residence.
“This comes on the heel of yet another killing of two IPOB family members who were peacefully gathering in Arondizuogu on Sunday December 1. Their bodies are still in the morgue.
“Police and army must know that the time is fast approaching when British diplomatic clout and protection may not be enough to shield them from the consequences of their daily crimes against innocent Biafrans.
“Attacking the home of my lawyer is a step too far.”
He added, “There is a United Nations Mission, US Embassy, British High Commission and other highbrow foreign diplomatic presence in Nigeria, who should take note of these ugly developments and convey same to their home countries.
“It is their responsibility to ensure this wanton brutality, lawlessness and anarchy are duly noted.”
Efforts to get a confirmation from the Police Public Relations Officer in the state Haruna Mohammed, on the matter did not yield any results as of the time of filing this report as he did not reply to our correspondent’s calls or text message in the regard.
