Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that the police and army on Monday invaded the house of his lawyer in Anambra State.
Mr Kanu said in a statement on Monday that three IPOB members were allegedly killed in the process.
“Confirmed reports indicate that a combined team of Nigeria police and military assassination squad invaded the home of my lawyer in Oraifite, Anambra State this morning Monday in a bid to kill him and his family,” he said.
“Sadly three innocent Biafrans were killed by this invading force at his residence.”
Kanu called on international bodies to intervene in the alleged intimidation of IPOB members in the country.
“There is a United Nations Mission, US Embassy, British High Commission and other highbrow foreign diplomatic presence in Nigeria, who should take note of these ugly developments and convey same to their home countries.
“It is their responsibility to ensure this wanton brutality, lawlessness and anarchy are duly noted,” he said.
