PHOTOS: The current state of Nnamdi Kanu's house after military invasion

A journalist who visited the residence of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in Isiama Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State, earlier today has shared pictures from the area which is said to have been deserted following the military invasion.

Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, accused the Nigerian Army of declaring war on his client and “innocent, unarmed and defenceless” supporters of IPOB.

“The Military has declared war on the innocent, unarmed and defenceless civilians. Sporadic shooting is going on in the premises of Nnamdi Kanu now, “ Ejiofor said on Thursday.

“The situation is serious. My client’s whereabouts has remained unknown. His entire house has been shattered with bullets and missiles.

“The soldiers had just forcefully gained entrance into his house after shooting for about 40 minutes. His entrance gate was broken and forced open. Their mission is still unknown as every person seen in his house has surrendered, including his aged parents,” the lawyer added.
