Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu on Monday alleged that the Oraifite, Anambra State home of his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, was invaded by policemen and soldiers.
He said three of his members were killed during the attack, with others injured.
Kanu, in a statement on Monday, said the attack was targeted at his lawyer and his family.
He described the attack as a step taken too far, which he said would only hasten Nigeria’s disintegration.
“Confirmed reports indicate that a combined team of Nigeria police and military assassination squad invaded the home of my lawyer Ejiofor in Oraifite Anambra State this morning, Monday, December 2, in a bid to kill him and his family,” Kanu said.
According to him, three innocent “Biafrans” were killed by the invaders.
Kanu said: “This comes on the heel of yet another killing of two IPOB family members who were peacefully gathered in Arondizuogu on December 1.
