Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Nigerian Army of attempting to kill him over his determination to actualise Biafra.

He spoke after the alleged invasion of his home at Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, where some persons were allegedly killed and scores injured.

Soldiers reportedly stormed his home at about 6.30pm yesterday.

Kanu said they shot sporadically, adding that their sole aim was to take his life.

Narrating the incident to Daily Sun, Kanu recalled he was resting when one of his relatives drew his attention to heavy presence of soldiers at the main entrance to his family home.

He said within few minutes, “the soldiers started shooting sporadically and, in the process, wounded many people within the vicinity.

“Their action was a crude show of power on innocent and defenceless people of Biafra”.

Kanu, however, called on his members “to remain calm”.

Also reacting, Kanu’s younger brother Emmanuel, in his response, said any attempt to kill his elder brother will spell doom for the country.
