- The Ohanaeze Ndigbo says it is not happy with the way security operatives reportedly invaded the home of Nnamdi Kanu
- The socio-political group says the IPOB leader has remained non-violent since he began his agitation
- It laments that military operatives have taken over the south-east in the guise of trying to foil agitations
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has added to the reactions that have greeted the recent alleged invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home by security agents which went violent.
The apex socio-political group described the action of the security operatives as sheer brigandage.
In a statement by the national publicity secretary of the group, Prince Uche Achi-Okpaga, issued in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state, the organisation said: “The invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home is brazen show of military brigandage and sheer prostitution of power without authority.
“It baffles me that solders are unleashed on a person that is peaceful and devoid of violence, while the gun trotting herdsmen are still on rampage in virtually every nook and cranny of Nigeria.
“It is a pity that the tenets of democracy are been bruised and battered with reckless impunity in Nigeria.
“The Operation pyton dance is a deliberate ploy to gag the south-east like a conquered territory.
“There is no doubt any longer about the disposition and countenance of the APC led Federal Government on the Igbos.
“The recent NNPC appointments strongly testify to our vindications and these consequential events dramatises them beyond doubt.
“Today, Boko Haram is still killing and herdsmen pulverising villages but it is in the southeast that is even peaceful that soldiers are deployed at close and strategic points.”
The group lamented that in the southeastern region, soldiers now unleash economic mayhem on motorists and deal dreadfully with those who dare not bring what it described as ‘white’.

“I think we have over-flogged these issues because this is a government that, among others, has been treating ear problem and is not disposed to hear your complaints.
“We just have a choreographic democracy. May God hear and fight our course,” the statement added.
NAIJ.com earlier reported that Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister, wrote Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), about 24 hours after the latter’s supporters clashed with security operatives.
In the letter, Fani-Kayode noted that the alleged invasion of Kanu’s home was meant to silence the chief agitator, but that those who reportedly planned it do not understand that it would only increase the crisis.
