The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has lamented over the spate of attacks in Nigeria’s South East region.
Kanu expressed sadness and strongly condemned the attacks across the Southeast.
The IPOB leader, who spoke his routine meeting on Monday with his Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, and some members of his legal team, also conveyed his comfort to victims of the attacks.
According to a tweet by Ejimakor: “Update: I had a visitation with #MNK today. With profound sadness, he received news of the staggered attacks of past few days across Southeast, including the one at my hometown.
“He asked me to strongly condemn the attacks on his behalf & convey his comfort to all the victims.”
Lately, some unknown gunmen have been attacking communities, markets, and government facilities in the South East, imposing a five-day sit-at-home and enforcing it with brutal force.
The enforcers claim to be disciples of Kanu and members of IPOB and sometimes dress in Biafran uniform with their faces covered in mask.
Over the weekend, these unknown gunmen had attacked Ejimakor’s hometown in Imo State.
Meanwhile, gunmen had attacked INEC’s office in Imo State severally.
