Operatives of the Nigerian Police have begun an intense search for the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)‘s leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s return for parents burial.
Eye9ja reports that a native of Afaraukwu, identified as Chinwe Abaraikwu revealed the new move of the Nigerian Police while speaking with Vanguard News.
Chinwe Abaraikwu said the Nigerian Police had already Begun search for the Biafran leader to ascertain his arrival for his parents’ burial.
Eye9ja learned that Chinwe Abaraikwu said that as the first son of the family, it will be a taboo for the IPOB leader to be absent from the burial of his parents.
“Nnamdi Kanu is our beloved son. As the first son of his parents, custom demands that he should be around during the burial of his parents. His father was a traditional ruler of the community, and tradition demands there are certain rites he, as first son, should perform.
“But the issue is whether the Federal Government will not arrest him if he comes back for the burial. You know the police have been threatening to arrest him anywhere he is sighted.
“Last time, the police even came to search the palace believing that Nnamdi Kanu was back,” he said.
Meanwhile, Eye9ja reports that the leader of the proscribed group had since absconded from the Nigerian territory following the ordeal he experienced in the hands of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The report of the Nigerian Police searching for the Nnamdi Kanu’s return for his late parents burials, comes in less than 24-hours that this online news platform reported that the Nigerian Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, has scheduled a new date for the re-opening of Nnamdi Kanu’s trial.
However, the re-opening of the trail of the leader of the proscribed IPOB group has been trailed with mixed reactions from Biafrans with some claiming that the “leader of the group is justified”
“By now, the court should have known that Kanu is justified,” One Ogbor revealed while reacting to a Facebook post of the Court setting a new date for Nnamdi Kanu’s trial.
