My village not Sambisa forest, Nnamdi Kanu says as he accuses army, police of fresh siege
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has alleged fresh invasion of his Isiama-Afaraukwu village in Ibeku Umuahia, Abia State by a combined team of Nigeria Army and the Police.
In a statement he signed and released through IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, Kanu claimed the invasion happened on Monday.
Noting that his house was not Sambisa forest camp of the Boko Haram terrorists, Kanu urged world leaders to stop supporting the current government in Nigeria.
The statement read, “Early this morning, the 12th of October, 2020, the Nigerian Army once again commenced their siege on Isiama-Afaraukwu my village in search of innocent citizens to kill.
“The American government, the British government, the European Union and the United Nation’s aid to Nigeria in fighting the Boko Haran and other terrorist activities in Nigeria are now used to aid the Jihad and indirectly aid the Islamic conquest of Christian Biafraland and the rest of the South under the guise of providing military assistance in the fight against Boko Haram and other forms of terrorism.
“U.S. Mission in Nigeria , UK in Nigeria, European Union in Nigeria, United Nations in Nigeria, you can now see where the military aid you are providing this government of Nigeria is going into.
“You people are indirectly aiding the Islamic conquest of Biafraland and the rest of the South under the guise of providing military assistance in the fight against Boko Haram and other forms of terrorism.
“The Nigerian Army and their Police counterparts should know that they are under constant live CCTV surveillance and therefore, any terrorist attack on my village by this band of uniformed terrorists will be captured and broadcast live for the world to see.
“The world must stop supporting terrorists in power in Nigeria. My village is not Sambisa Forest.”
Kanu, who is facing trial over alleged treasonable offences fled Nigeria since 2017 after soldiers invaded his home in Abia State.
