Kanu funeral: IPOB issued a strong warning issued on February 6 2020 14 seconds before the Nigerian Army, Author: John Irving Nava Wangchuck (John Owen Nwachukwu)
The indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has told the Nigerian army that the country should face the real security challenges facing the country, rather than trying to stop them from burying Israelis Okwu Kanu and his wife, the leader of Nnamdi Kanu
Groups struggling for the realization of Biafra’s sovereign state insist that the army will not prevent them from performing the funeral of Kanu’s parents.
The fixed date for the funeral is February 14, 2019.
Pro-Biafra Group spokesman Emma Powerful said in a statement that the army has renounced its core role of defending the country and is now in Alfa, Umuahia, Abia State Afaraukwu community, harassing and intimidating indigenous peoples.
Powerful said they are informing the world that preparations for burying Kanu’s parents are proceeding as planned, adding that nothing can stop it.
He said the Nigerian army is wasting time and precious resources trying to stop what they know they can’t stop.
“The burial of the dead is older than humans themselves,” he said.
He wondered how the Nigerian government could justify the deployment of soldiers to the funeral site “while terrorists are busy trapping people who abide by the law.”
IPOB said: “What Buratai and his soldiers did in Umuahia was no different from what terrorists did in the northeast.
“They invaded peaceful communities, killing, plundering, destroying and abducting people arbitrarily. We continue to draw the attention of the civilized world to the constantly lazy and shameless Nigerian army’s constant harassment, humiliation and intimidation of Umuahia-Ibeku, their trading purposes It is intimidation of innocent civilians. “
The spokesman said that the Nigerian government and its soldiers were “shameless and downright shameful, they refused to deal with the Fulani armed rebellion and the threat of Boko Haram in the north, but instead they chose to focus on the funeral of Alfa Laukwu This shows that it is misplaced. The core priorities of the APC regime have directly contributed to the deterioration of the security situation throughout Nigeria.
“Boko Haram, Fulani herders, Miyetti Allah Bandits, Islamic State of West Africa (ISIS), Al-Qaeda of Mhagreb Waiting dutifully for Buratai and his fighters to participate in the battle in the north. That is a real security issue facing Nigeria, not the burial of Israeli Uku Kanu and his wife under Israel’s Israel in Eze. “
