1 min read

The family of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, petitioned the United Nations, the European Union and other foreign countries, accusing the Nigerian Army of looting valuables from their son’s home during a raid on October 8. Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who is well known as Kanu’s personal lawyer, signed the petition on behalf of the traditional head of Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, in Abia State, and Kanu’s father, Eze Isreal Okwu-Kanu. The Army had claimed that lethal weapons were recovered from the house. But it was alleged in the separate letters sent by Ejiofor to the international bodies and foreign countries that “CCTV footage” attached to the said letters “picked” the alleged looting by a combined team of soldiers and policemen. The said CCTV recordings were not made available to our correspondent. UCJ, UNILORIN.
