An IPOB lady who joined other female members of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to demand the whereabouts of their leader Nnamdi Kanu, reportedly collapsed.
Protesting the disappearance of Nnamdi Kanu on September 14, 2017, after his home was invaded by the Nigerian Army, the women took to the streets of Owerri, Imo State to demand answers on the whereabouts of the IPOB leader.
However during the protest which is coming a day after the Nigerian Army announced its readiness to embark on Operation Python Dance III in major communities in the South East, an IPOB lady collapsed but was resuscitated by her colleagues.
Nnamdi Kanu’s family also demanded his whereabouts few months ago. The family of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, asked the Federal Government to release the corpse of their son for burial.
The family said it believed that Kanu was killed by the Nigerian military, in an attempt to quell the agitation for Biafra. The family spokesman, Emma Kanu, told Daily Sun that the federal government should release Nnamdi’s corpse to them so as to give him a befitting burial.
Emma said ever since the IPOB leader disappeared last year, when his home was raided by the military, the family had always feared for his life.
“Now that it has been reported that he is dead, the federal government should, without hesitation release his corpse to his family, so that we and the entire Igbo nation can give him the befitting burial he deserves because he is a true Igbo son,” he said.
The younger Kanu said even if the IPOB leader was out of Biafra struggle, it would not vitiate the resolve of IPOB and indeed the whole of Igbo to actualise Biafra. On the call by Gen T.Y Danjuma for Nigerians to protect themselves since those saddled with the responsibility had failed them, Kanu said although the call was belated, however, it was a clarion call which IPOB would not take lightly.
