- Kanu’s whereabout unkown, still missing - IPOB
The Abia State Police Commissioner, Anthony Ogbizi has revealed that it recovered some petrol bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) from Nnamdi Kanu’s house.
He said: “They were armed with petrol bomb. They burnt police vehicles and carted away three pump actions and other police materials. Some officers were injured and in fact as I’m talking to you, one of the injured police officer, an ASP is dead.
“The doctors tried their best to save him, but they couldn’t. Now, we have lost a soul. And you know what it takes to train a police officer. And you know the vacuum created. Once a police officer is gone, it takes a minimum of one year to train another.
The Abia police boss continued; “Simultaneously, they carried other attacks on law abiding citizens of this nation. You could see along the road the destruction of vehicles belonging to citizens. Certainly you cannot say that that is a peaceful demonstration. I think this attack was orchestrated to get arms which they succeeded in doing. Thank God the police succeeded in securing other arms. They attacked a bank may be with the intention to get more money to buy arms.”
Meanwhille, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu remains missing and whereabout unknown according IPOB sources.
An official statement quotes that he may have been captured by officials of The Nigerian Military or may have been killed. They claim to have lost contacts with him.
