Family of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has alleged of intimidation and harassment by security operatives.
The family has, therefore, called on well-meaning people and the international community to call the Nigerian security agents to order.
A statement by Prince Emmanuel Kanu, the family’s spokesman said operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) have, in recent times, been patrolling the Afara Ukwu country home of the Kanus and, in particular, mounting a 24-hour surveillance on their home.
He said, “What security outfits are doing in Afara Ukwu is uncalled for, since the area is one of the most peaceful in Igbo land. They should rather direct their energies and professional prowess, if they had any, to the NorthEast, where Boko Haram had decimated the population, and Benue State, where he said Fulani herdsmen have turned into a slaughter ground.
“It is getting clearer by the day that security operatives are planning to raid our home again, but it would serve the image of the security outfits better if they return what they looted from our house during the first and second raids, including our mother’s two boxes of clothes.
“The family is still making a case for all the things they looted from our house during their first and second raids, particularly our mother’s two boxes, as anybody still keeping those boxes will have no peace until they are returned.”
