Politics: TENSION! As Shooting Rocks Nnamdi Kanu’s House, Family Raises Alarm – Daily Parrot

There was palpable fear in Abia State over the alleged shooting on Saturday evening around the Isiama Afaraukwu Umuahia, the country home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel, who raised the alarm, claimed that a detachment of policemen stormed the entrance gate to their late father’s palace and started shooting, Vanguard reports.


Recall that in September 2017, the Nigerian Army reportedly invaded Kanu’s home, barely 24 hours after it announced the start of its second phase of Operation Python Dance in the South-Eastern States of Nigeria.

Also, on October 2020, the IPOB leader, who is currently in the custody of the DSS, raised the alarm over the alleged early morning invasion of his village by the combined team of the Nigerian Army and the Police, who allegedly harassed and intimidated people in the area.

Kanu had, in 2021, told Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, that his house was unlawfully invaded by security operatives with his life seriously threatened.

The Biafran agitator further alleged that he would have been killed along with others on the day of the invasion if not for the wisdom he applied to jump out of the country.
