The Ohanaeze Youth Council has publicly warned the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr Ene Okon, to ensure that his men stayed away from the burial of Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Kanu, parents of the leader of the proscribed Independent People of Biafra, Namdi Kanu. President of OYC, Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, has stated that the Abia State CP planned to disrupt the burial on February 14, 2020, should the IPOB leader’s followers show up in Umuahia or anywhere near Afaraukwu, Kanu’s hometown.
Igboayaka cautioned that any move by the police to disrupt the burial or launch ‘Operation Elephant Dance’ would be resisted by his group. Igboayaka, however, called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, to withdraw military troops and police personnel hovering around Afaraukwu community, so as to allow the bereaved to accord their last respect to the late father and mother of Nnamdi Kanu.
