Nnamdi Kanu, Parents, Others Still Missing After Nigeria Army's Invasion Of His House 

His Royal Highness Eze Isreal Okwu Kanu and her lolo.

Since after Nigeria Army Invasion of his house at Afara-Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, on Thursday, 14th September 2017, the fearless leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is nowhere to be found. His parents, as well as some of his followers, are missing. 

Many people both dead and alive were whisked away by the soldiers who executed the onslaught in Kanu's compound. 

The palace of Eze Israel Kanu was a busy one before the release of Nnamdi Kanu from detention and since after the release of his son from prison, the number of visitors per day outnumbered the capacity of the palace leading to visitors making themselves comfortable outside the gate, on the streets to his compound. 

The attack from the Army was unannounced hence the IPOB members and visitors who were present at the time of the attack were taken aback, leading to the slaughtering of many of them.

The IPOB security services present to maintain decorum were not armed to defend the people against the Army Invasion and attack, hence, they scrambled for safety as well with some of them falling dead in the process. 

The soldiers shot their way into the palace and made away with many IPOB members both those they shot dead and those badly injured. 
The palace of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in a state of disarray and destroyed by the Nigeria military.

At the end of the attack, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu alongside his parents, Eze Israel Kanu & Ugoeze Kanu, went missing. Some people initially thought that they escaped to a safe location, but being incommunicado since the attack and having been searched for by IPOB Welfare Team and Security Team, it is inevitable to conclude that the soldiers on the mission abducted them, as someone said he heard when the soldiers ordered their targets as well as victims to enter the car. 
It is wise to believe that the king would have been one of those given such orders because, for respect's sake, they wouldn't have dragged him inside as they did to others.

This conclusion is not mistaken because this is not the first time Nigeria security agents started this untoward act. They have been in the business for long. Moreover, Buhari cannot be trusted with following due process especially when the case is not in his favour.

Recall that on 31 December 1983, the democratically constituted government of Shehu Shagari was overthrown in a military coup by Gen. Muhamadu Buhari-led army. Buhari could not follow due process to tender or address his grievances or any anomaly found.

He went further to hatch a plot to kidnap Umaru Dikko, off the streets of London, who he and his handlers accused of embezzling public funds using his office as the Minister of Transport.

But instead of following due process of extradition or repatriation  (in that instance), Buhari ventured to smuggle the Minister into the country through a Diplomatic Baggage consigned to land in the then capital, Lagos. 

Fortunately, the Secretary to Dikko who saw her boss whisked away by unknown gunmen alerted the police and an order from the government of Margret Thatcher, the then Prime Minister of Britain, to customs officials at airports, seaports and border crossings - to be vigilant when inspecting Nigeria-bound vessels, was timely to save Dikko as he was already made unconscious through injections administered to him by a standing doctor. This happened on the 5th of July 1984.

Also, recall that during the time Nnamdi Kanu was arrested by the Directorate of State Services (DSS), on 14th of October, 2015, he was also held incommunicado until radio-Biafra got the intelligence and broke the news. 

At first, DSS denied arresting the IPOB leader saying he was not in their custody. But as the news went viral, they had to admit. For three days he was held incommunicado. 

It was later learnt that their initial plan was to kill the IPOB leader without anyone knowing about it. But their plan failed and since then, subsequent plans to eliminate him have equally failed because the information would have leaked out to IPOB Intelligence Officers beforehand. 

It is indisputable that IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is well known for his fearlessness, boldness, courage and outspoken nature. He had spoken boldly in court against President Buhari's intimidation. If he were not taken by the invading soldiers and made unable to speak out, he would have spoken out against the unconstitutional declaration of IPOB as a terrorist organization by Nigeria Defence Headquarters. He would have as well shredded the southeast governors' forum for the illegal proscription of IPOB in the southeast.

He must have been held hostage by Nigeria Army which must have been the game plan between the federal government of Nigeria and the States governors of the southeast, to suppress the IPOB leader and shut his mouth up so that Anambra gubernatorial election, as well as other elections in Biafra land, would hold contrary to the position of  Biafrans"

Also, Buhari's handlers must have seen that there is no substantial evidence to back their concocted charges against Kanu hence Kanu must win the case. So they have to find a way to stop that as Kanu had stated before his late abduction that 2million IPOB members must storm Abuja on the 17th of October, 2017, being the adjourned date for the continuation of the case between him and Fg. 

But I doubt the efficacy of such plans because they are childish. I believe that IPOB leadership, legal team and the international community will not allow such to happen because Kanu has the right to air his views no matter how dissenting they are because Nigeria is assumed to be in a democratic setting. 

Therefore, I urge the military, the federal government of Nigeria and the southeast governors to release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, his parents and all other IPOB personnel whisked away by the invading soldiers of 14th September 2017, at his home residence.
