Four months after Nigerian Army invaded IPOB leader’s house, Emmanuel Kanu, younger brother to Kanu has cried out to Police, Army to return properties of their mother and family they made away with during September 14 house invasion.
In a statement made available to newsmen, Thursday, Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brother, Emmanuel Kanu asked Nigerian Army, Police to bring back television sets, generating sets and two boxes filled with the wrapper, belonging to the matriarch of the family, to include items carted away by the army.
Soldiers, under the Operation Python Dance II, on September 14 and October 8 2017, raided the home of the IPOB leader, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
The army and police spokespersons had, however, denied the allegation.
Nnamdi Kanu’s family on Thursday maintained their ground that the invading soldiers and policemen carted away their personal belongings and demanded they be returned.
In his words: “We have said this before and we will keep talking about it, of all that the soldiers and policemen took away when they invaded our home, the ones we are worried about most are the two boxes of wrapper belonging to our mother.
“What are they going to do with the old woman’s boxes of the wrapper? If they do not return them together with other items they made away with, they must surely face God’s wrath.”
Kanu further claimed that apart from their mother’s belongings, the soldiers also desecrated their father’s palace by ransacking and taking every available thing that represents Igbo culture.
“What the army did is barbaric and despicable; taking our old parents’ belongings was the height of callousness, and we call on them to return those items without further delay or they will face the wrath of Chukwuokike Abiama,” Emmanuel alleged.
