Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says his client has been placed under house arrest by the Nigerian army.
Soldiers surrounded Kanu’s home in Umuahia, Abia state on Tuesday, two days after they had clashed with his supporters in the area.
In a statement issued shortly after the incident, Ejiofor said he got a distress call from Kanu but that he couldn’t confirm whether he is alive or dead.
He also accused the soldiers of killing four members of IPOB in the area.
“Just to notify the world that my client’s (Nnamdi Kanu) house is presently under siege by the trigger-happy soldiers acting under the direct instruction of chief of army staff,” the statement read.
“He has been placed under house arrest at the moment while shooting sporadically into the air. Casualties are being counted as the unprovoked assault progresses. Some IPOB members have just been killed at least four people.
“They drove in in their thousands to arrest and maim him. I just got a distress call from him now. Further efforts to establish contact with him have remained unsuccessful.
“As it stands now, I can’t confirm whether he is dead or alive.”
Ejiofor further said the federal government is attempting to “eliminate” Kanu through ‘Operation Python Dance,’ the military exercise recently launched in the south-east.
“It (the exercise) is yielding the desired result to the presidency, having launched a manhunt for my client and unarmed members if Indigenous People of Biafra,” he added.
“Let the world know that the federal government has practically abandoned their case in court in search of a brute route to eliminate my client.
“As I type this statement, his residence has been cordoned off by the military, majority of whom are of Fulani extraction.
“The world should hold Buhari-led federal government responsible if anything untoward happens to Nnamdi Kanu. The situation is very tense at the moment.”
The question on the lips of every Nollywood follower or observer is, is teen actress Regina Daniels pregnant?.The child star who seem not to grow older than sixteen over the last couple of years was in the United State of America to attend the “Who is who in Nollywood” event in the United State of America and obviously she had a swell time changing into different dresses and taking pictures that she decided to share two of those pictures that both had veteran Kenneth On them.
Now in the both pictures it appeared our teen star had a baby bump. Though she latter edited the pictures to remove the bump and posted on her wall. Now if she is really pregnant who is the father? Will it be Somadina Adinma her rumored lover?
But then on a second thought, is it that our dear Regina so awauf food in the United States and decided to feed herself to the extent of developing a food bump.
Regina is a young thespian who has stared in movies like “jaja the great”, Plantain Girl” “Destiny” to mention ju…
