Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has declared him missing after men of the Nigerian Army allegedly invaded his house today, Thursday, in Abia state.
In a statement, the lawyer said: “the situation is serious. My client’s whereabouts has remained unknown. His entire house has been shattered with bullets and missiles.
“The soldiers had just forcefully gained entrance into his house after shooting for about 40 minutes. His entrance gate was broken and forced open. Their mission is still unknown as every person seen in his house has surrendered, including his aged parents.
“We will avail the world with the pictures of these dastardly acts.”
Ejiofor called on supporters of Biafra to remain calm in the face of what he described as “unprovoked killings.”
“In the face of this unprovoked killings, torture, abduction and malicious destruction of property, I still appeal for calm from IPOB members. Just be assured that the entire world is watching. Do not take up arms; continue to conduct yourselves in the most civilized manner you are well known for.” [myad]
