CCTV Showed Army Looting Kanu’s Home - Family
The last has not been heard of the latest invasion of officers of the Nigeria Army and Police to the Abia home of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The family of Kanu, has petitioned the United Nations, the European Union and other foreign countries, accusing the Nigerian Army of looting valuables from their son’s home during a raid on October 8.
Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who is well known as Kanu’s personal lawyer, signed the petition on behalf of the traditional head of Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, in Abia State, and Kanu’s father, Eze Isreal Okwu-Kanu.
The Army had claimed that lethal weapons were recovered from the house.
But it was alleged in the separate letters sent by Ejiofor to the international bodies and foreign countries that “CCTV footage” attached to the said letters “picked” the alleged looting by a combined team of soldiers and policemen.
The said CCTV recordings were however not made available.
The letters read in part, “We are solicitors to the family of His Royal Majesty, Eze Isreal Okwu-Kanu, hereinafter referred to as ‘our client’ and on whose standing instruction we file this communication with the British Government.
“It is our brief, that on the 8th day of October, 2017, our client’s son’s home (Nnamdi Kanu) in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, in Abia State was invaded, and violently looted by rampaging Nigerian soldiers and their police counterparts.
“The CCTV footage which picked the horrendous raids, revealed the brazen looting and carting away of valuables and household equipment by the above named security agents.”
The separate letters were addressed to the Resident Representatives of UN and EU, the US Ambassador, the Russian Ambassador to Nigeria, the High Commissioner of the British High Commission; and the High Commissioner, the Canadian High Commission.
