Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has threatened the Police in Abia state, especially the Commissioner of Police, Ene Okon, and his commanders.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page on Saturday, Kanu stated that the children of the officers will be hunted down if they kill anyone at his parents’ burial next week.
“If Inspector Okon and his commanders come to my father’s house to kill anyone on 14th February 2020 at my parents’ burial, we will hunt down their children,” Kanu wrote.
Nasoweseeamonline had earlier reported that parents of the IPOB leader, the paramount ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu, Ibeku in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, late Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and his wife, Ugoeze Sally Kanu will be buried next weekend, Friday 14th.
Meanwhile, recall that CP Ene Okon, the commissioner of police for Abia State who was transferred from Ebonyi State in February shortly before the 2019 general polls, had last year threatened to arrest Kanu if he steps his foot into Abia State.
Earlier in the week, the commissioner of Police, said officers will be deployed to the burial of Nnamdi Kanu’s parents and will arrest any IPOB member or members who would attend the burial as a group or anyone bearing any uniform or insignia relating to Biafra or IPOB, stressing that IPOB has been proscribed in Nigeria by the Federal Government.
