Nnamdi Kanu Orders The Immediate 'capture' Of Gov Ikpeazu To Face A People's Trial As Aba Falls Apart
The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is known for his oft bold, controversial eyebrow raising statements and commentary.
Yesterday he was at it again.
He has directed his members to “capture” Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to face a trial for the alleged role he played in the killing of #ENDSARS protesters in the state.
Kanu, in a statement that he personally signed, insists that Ikpeazu must be apprehended anywhere he was sighted. The statement reads in part:
“Okezie Ikpeazu is in Asaga village Ohafia. He is hiding in the house of his Chief of Staff, one Ukpai Agwu Ukpai.
“Our youths in Ohafia are hereby instructed to capture him alive to face trial for the numerous murders he committed including the death of protesters yesterday in Aba. On no account must he be allowed to leave Ohafia alive. Its an order. “
He further urged the #EndSARS protesters not to give up, adding “the oppressors will try every option including shooting to quell the protest, but nobody should be deterred.
“We call on every youth, man and woman to join the protests now. This is the time everybody should identify with this movement to rescue our collective future and destiny from suffocation.”
In related incidents despite curfews in both Aba and Umuahia things took a turn for the worse in Aba when protesters killed two policemen from the dreaded Police Dragons squad at Omoba road,Aba. They then set upon the Eziama police station along the Aba- Ikot Ekpene road which they sacked after looting the armoury.
Earlier they had set ablaze the Aba town hall housing the secretariat of the Aba South council and have been accused of attempting to infiltrate at least two banks.
