Soldiers raid Kanu’s home; remove “technical items” or “household items” depending on who you believe

Soldiers have once again raided the family home of the Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra ( IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in Afaraukwu, Umuahia, according to his younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu.

Prince Kanu said the raid took place on Sunday afternoon, with the soldiers carting away household items like television, generating sets, clothes among others belongings of the family.

Kanu called on the international community to prevail on the Nigeria Army to stop raiding their home, and to produce his brother whose whereabouts according to him has remained unknown  since after the September 14 military invasion of the compound.

Technical – not household – items: The Army has denied that it removed household items. The Desk Officer of Operation Python Dance in charge of Abia State said the operation was based on the intelligence that arms were hidden in the compound.

“The things  removed may be technical items,” he said. “Somebody was arrested with weapon in the compound.”

The Army Officer who preferred to be simply identified as Desk Officer for the operation also said it was a joint operation with the police, and directed further enquiries  to the police.
