If CP Okon kills any IPOB member during my parents’ burial, we’ll hunt their children
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has strictly warned the Abia State Commissioner of Police, CP Ene Okon if his men kill any member of the group, their children will be haunted.
Kanu declared during his evening programme on Radio Biafra on Saturday.
If Inspector Okon and his commanders come to my father's house to kill anyone on 14th February 2020 at my parents' burial, we will hunt down their children.
Kanu stated that IPOB only goes about preaching gospel of Chukwu-Okokike Abiama (God, Almighty) and has not fired any shot or threatened to kill any but surely attack family any force commander, including the Chief of Army Staff, Turtu Yusuf Burutai.
The CP had earlier warned IPOB to desist from the burial of Kanu’s parents, Eze and Lolo Okwu Kanu or face confrontation from the men of the force.
The CP noted that IPOB is proscribed from gathering in public and will not be allowed to break down law and order.
However, Okon revealed that a warning letter was earlier sent to Afaraukwu community leaders to make sure IPOB members does not get near the funeral.
Okon, who spoke during an interview with The Sun Newspaper correspondent, Sampson, insisted that if any member of the secessionist group is sighted with any proscribed item, including Biafra flag and insignia or Jewish flag will be apprehended and the burial process scattered.
Meanwhile, the deputy leader to IPOB, Uche Mefor has declared that they are not afraid to engage in war with Nigeria if need be, adding that the world has evolved in the 21st century.
Mefor noted that so many developments on international law have emerged which grants self-determination, and IPOB will exhaust all diplomatic approaches at their disposal to restore Biafra and will stand as evidence if finally enter the war.
