We Will Shut Down Anambra if Nnamdi Kanu's Father is Deposed - IYA Vows.
A coalition of youths from Nnamdi Kanu's father community has vowed to shutdown Anambra if Nnamdi Kanu's father, Eze Isreal Kanu who is a traditional ruler is deposed.
The group under the ages of Ibeku Youth Assembly (IYA) made the vow after what they describe as moves by "unscrupulous elements to depose the highly respected Monarch in Abia State and the country as a whole.’
Eze Kanu is the traditional ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu Ibeku in Abia State.
In a statement obtained by IfeanyiCy.com and
signed by its secretary, Mr. Ihechi Chinedu Zik, in Umuahia, the IYA said that it would not tolerate such plan by ‘unscrupulous elements to depose the highly respected Monarch in Abia State and the country as a whole.’
“We, Ibeku Youth Assembly viewed it as illegal, because since IPOB started its agitations for a sovereign state of Biafra, they have been conducting themselves peacefully without arms.
“We will resist such move by this group, consists of disgruntled elements who are being sponsored by a politician from a particular political party in Abia State.
“Any attempt by the state government to remove Eze Kanu will spell doom for the state and we will ensure the state is shut down if such plan is carried out.
“We are also condemning the alleged invasion of the residence of Eze Kanu by soldiers in search of his son, Nnamdi Kani. We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw soldiers, nicknamed “operation Python Dance 11” from the street of Umuahia following cases of killings by Nigeria Army.
