Yesterday, we at Ifeanyicy.com rightly reported to you, our beloved readers about the Invasion of the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu by some soldiers, which left people seriously injured.

Now, a new account has been presented by the Abia State Police Command. While Nnamdi Kanu cries out that soldiers stormed his residence and injured occupants in an attempt to take his life; the police on the other hand said military personnel were only carrying out a procession to test a new armored carrier.

Leye Oyebade, The Abia State Police Commissioner said, “There was no attack on the home of Nnamdi Kanu. What happened was that the military was parading a new armoured carrier and passed through Nnamdi Kanu’s residence. It was while they were passing that some people threw stones and other things at them."

On the other hand, Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, presented a different account of what transpired at the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, saying there was a siege.

In a statement Mr. Ejiofor accused the Buhari administration of attempting to take his client’s life.

“Just to alert the world that the Nigeria military personnel under the command of Chief of Army Staff is presently laying a siege on my client (Nnamdi Kanu) country home in umuahia. They had continued to shot sporadically into the air through which assault, about five of his family members were brutally wounded and some unfortunately killed. There is no doubt that the present deployment of troops to the South East is to haunt for my client and possibly eliminate him,” the statement said.

Mr. Ejiofor stated categorically that if anything happens to his client, the international would hold the country's president responsible:

“Let the whole world know that if anything untoward happen to my client, that President Buhari and his Chief of Army Staff should be held responsible by the international Community. We are presently counting the number of casualties as the onslaught progress. The world should be immediately notified about the tension in Biafra land, created by the government in power. We must adopt all know legal mechanism to resist the unconstitutional but violent approach in dealing with unarmed people merely operating within the confines of law. Buhari must be held responsible.We are ready to present our case once more before the International Court of Justice. The families that lost their beloved ones in the last year may 29th violent attack by the military are yet to recover from the shock of losing their love ones. This situation must be arrested in time. ”
