The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday said five people were feared dead and about 30 others injured when gunmen suspected to be soldiers allegedly attacked the country home of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB media and publicity secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said the attackers wore army and police uniforms and drove into the palace of the traditional ruler of Afaraukwu, who is the father of Kanu and started shooting people.
We did not clash with anybody or group. The attackers wore Nigerian soldiers and Nigeria Police uniforms and came to kill our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his compound at Afaraukwu, Umuahia and started shooting sporadically and killed five people and up to thirty other people had bullet wounds.
After attacking our people, they drove off. They came in five Hilux vans.
