Nnamdi Kanu’s Family Sends Serious Warning to Gov. Ikpeazu


Following comments credited to the Abia state governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu assuring Afaraukwu Ibeku autonomous community and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) family that the missing traditional ruler of the community, HRM Eze Israel Kanu, the father of the missing IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, will return home soon, the governor has been warned to desist from playing politics with the issue.


IGBERE TV reports that governor Ikpeazu made the comment when some people from the community paid him courtesy visit at the Government House Umuahia.

The governor during the event told his guests that the state Government was making efforts in collaboration with other South East Governors to ensure that the monarch is re-united with his subjects soon.

The whereabouts of Eze Kanu, his wife Lolo Sally, and son, Nnamdi Kanu has remained unknown since after the September 14, 2017 military invasion of his palace that also claimed the lives of many IPOB members and Biafra agitators.

Meanwhile, in a swift reaction to the Governor’s comments, Spokesman of the family and Kanu’s youngest brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu told Ikpeazu to “look for better ways of entertaining his guests and not use Kanu as a campaign slogan for his re-election bid”


He cautioned Ikpeazu to be mindful of his utterances concerning the whereabouts of the monarch and other family members yet to be sighted since after the military raid on the palace last year.

The family Spokesman wondered why “the Governor who has not thought it wise to visit the family since one year our father, mother and brother got disappeared suddenly made their matter a campaign tool’.

He said Ikpeazu should leave the Kanu family out of his second term project, and dismissed the Governor’s comment as an afterthought.

Prince Kanu said no amount of hypocrisy would exonerate Ikpeazu and his South East counterparts from culpability over the invitation of the military for a Python Dance Operation in the zone last year. “Ikpeazu should not think we can be easily deceived by hiring supporters from our community to visit him in Government House and making flowery comments about our family”.

According to him, “the prevailing hunger in the land had made it easy to recruit people to sing ones praises for peanuts”

Prince Kanu who claimed the Governor mobilized the visitors with N2 million blamed their action on hunger and poverty.

He wondered why the Governor would be promising to collaborate with his South East counterparts to help locate the missing monarch only few months to election year.

Kanu’s brother said anybody who participated in the said visit was part of the conspiracy that led to the military invasion of the community, adding that “the blood of all the victims of the raid is upon them”
