5 People Dead As Police Face Off IPOB In Anambra

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, alleged that the police in Anambra State invaded the house of his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in Ifite Oraifite in Ekwusigo Local Government Area and killed three people, while many were wounded.
He added that two IPOB members were earlier killed on Sunday. He said this in a statement he signed, entitled “Nigerian Police invaded the home of my lawyer, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in Anambra State and two people were killed and many injured.”

However, a source from Oraifite claimed that the problem was between two cult groups (Eke and Afor groups) that have been fighting in Oraifite and recently had another clash at a burial ceremony in the community, where many people from one of the groups sustained injuries, leading to the other group reporting to the police.

Meanwhile, according to Mazi Kanu, the IPOB leader, “confirmed reports indicate that a combined team of police and the Military assassination squad invaded the home of my lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor in Oraifite Anambra State, this morning (yesterday) in a bid to kill him and his family.

“Sadly, three innocent Biafrans were killed by this invading force at his residence. This comes on the heel of yet another killing of two IPOB family members, who were peacefully gathered in Arondizuogu yesterday(Sunday). Their bodies are still in the morgue.

“The police and Army must know that the time is fast approaching when British diplomatic clout and protection may not be enough to shield them from the consequences of their daily crimes against innocent Biafrans.

“Attacking the home of my lawyer is a step too far and the only effect it will have is to hasten the disintegration of Nigeria.

“The United Nations Mission, US Embassy, British High Commission and other highbrow foreign diplomatic presence in Nigeria, should take note of these ugly development and convey same to their home countries.

“It is their responsibility to ensure this wanton brutality and anarchy engineered by the govern-ment against the people of Biafra is duly noted for what it is— an act of war.

“Those responsible for this deadly assault know they will pay dearly for it. They know it is only a matter of time.”
