The Biafra leader has called out the Nigerian Army for trying to plot his death after his house was reportedly invaded by soldiers at about 6:30 pm on Sunday which leads to the death of some and scores of other injured.
Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Nigerian Army of attempting to kill him over his determination to actualise Biafra.
He spoke after the alleged invasion of his home at Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, Kanu said they shot sporadically, adding that their sole aim was to take his life.
Narrating the incident to Daily Sun, Kanu recalled he was resting when one of his relatives drew his attention to the heavy presence of soldiers at the main entrance to his family home.
He said within few minutes, “the soldiers started shooting sporadically and, in the process, wounded many people within the vicinity.
“Their action was a crude show of power on innocent and defenceless people of Biafra”.
Kanu, however, called on his members “to remain calm”.
Also reacting, Kanu’s younger brother Emmanuel, in his response, said any attempt to kill his elder brother will spell doom for the country.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army has reacted to the alleged invasion.
