Biafra: Fani-Kayode reacts to Nigerian Army's raid on Nnamdi Kanu's home

The South-East Governors' Forum is set to investigate the clash between the Nigerian Army and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu.

.

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemed the raid on Nnamdi Kanu's home by the officers of the Nigerian Army on Sunday.

Kanu's father, the traditional ruler of Afaraukwu Community, HRH Eze Israel Kanu, also described the invasion as "unwarranted and shocking".

"Oga stop feeling rude in the midst of the radicals even if Biafra will be actualized it won't be through someone like u whose kids are overseas and he delights in seeing others go thru stress to make him a redeemer".

The Army is now accusing the IPOB member of confronting them by blocking its road.

A statement issued by its assistant director of Public relations, Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi refuted claims that troops invaded Kanu's home or killed anybody.

"It was a group of suspected IPOB militants that blocked the road against troops of 145 Battalion while on show of force along FMC-Word Bank Road in Umuahia town, Abia State at about 6.00-6.30pm, today".

"This is far from the truth".

Kanu said they (soldiers) came to intimidate and harass innocent and unarmed people, stressing that they killed two people and injured several others in during melee. No life was lost.

"Both the soldier and the innocent female passerby have been evacuated to the unit's Medical Inspection Room and are receiving treatment", Gbadamosi said.

"We would like to use this opportunity to warn mischief-makers threatening the peace and security of the country through falsehood such as above. Members of the public are please requested to go about their lawful business and report any suspicious activity to the nearest police station or security", he added.

He wrote: "I just spoke to Nnamdi Kanu, his lawyer and his sister".

"It was while they were passing that some people threw stones and other things at them".

Speaking with newsmen while showing them areas where soldiers fires some shots Kanu said that what the soldiers are trying to do is to provoke his supporters so that they could turn around to say that he want to start war in the country.
