The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has announced his plan to attend the burial of his parents, slated for February 14, 2020.
Kanu who spoke through the IPOB Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said that the burial would follow the normal burial preparations, according to the custom of the land.
He however, refused to disclose the security arrangements put in place for the burial, in view of its sensitivity.
He said: “The burial of our Leader’s parents will be on the 14th of February, 2020.
“We are not going to disclose our security arrangements, because they are much enemies who wish to destroy or destabilise every effort made for the successful burial of the father and mother of our Leader
“IPOB is on ground, and nothing will change our resolve to protect the environment.”
Kanu stressed the resolve of the group to maintain a peaceful approach to their struggle for the actualisation of Biafra Republic.
“We are peaceful, and will maintain it to last point. But nobody should try IPOB”, he insisted.
The IPOB Leader lost his father, Eze Israel Kanu, four months after his mother, Ugoeze Sally Kanu, also died.
Eze Kanu was the Traditional Ruler of Afara Ukwu Umuahia community, untill his death.
