Dozens were reportedly killed on Thursday and scores wounded as troops of the Nigerian Army broke into the Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia country home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The invasion took place at around 5.30 PM, shortly after Abia Governor Okezie Ikpeazu announced that he has reached an agreement with the army for the withdrawal of soldiers from Aba and Umuahia.
There were thunderous sounds of sporadic gun shots as all roads leading to Kanu’s residence were barricaded with military vans and manned by soldiers, who kept shooting indiscriminately.
A source told CHECKPOINTCHARLEY that the operation in the house lasted for over 30 minutes.
“The Palace was desecrated and ransacked as the soldiers searched all nooks and crannies of the house,” the source said.
The source also said that cars in the house were damaged and a family dog shot dead.
Kanu’s father, HRH Eze Israel Kanu and his wife were  in the Palace during the operation. But they were unhurt, though they and Kanu’s siblings were reportedly taken away by the soldiers.
The Army public relations officer of 14, Brigade, Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi has refused to pick his calls.

The whereabouts of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is yet unknown. A source tells CHECKPOINTCHARLEY that he has left his residence since two days ago and safe where he is.

However, IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, confirming the invasion, said the whereabouts of Kanu, his parents and his siblings could not be ascertained.

Mr. Powerful said: “Yes, they broke our leader’s home in Afaraukwu Ibeku Umuahia. The combined team of Nigerian Army, police and DSS including civil defence corps, broke Nnamdi Kanu’s house this evening and killed many of our members in the front of our leader’s house.

“Right now, we cannot ascertain the whereabouts of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his family members including his father, mother and siblings.

“This invasion by the Nigerian Army is being led by Major General Buhari, supervised by Brg. General Buratai and his co army of occupation.

“They killed many of our members who have been staying with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and carried away the dead bodies.

“We are calling on men and women of good conscience around the globe to prevail on Nigeria Government and her security operatives, especially the Nigeria Army to return back the dead bodies for our burial.

“The number of people killed in our leader’s house will be made available to the press men after the proper account of the dead and the living, who were narrowly escaped from the attack from Nigerian Army and other operatives.

“The combined team arrived Nnamdi Kanu’s house with armoured vehicle and sophisticated weapons; they stayed while shooting sporadically for about three and half hours.”
