“We did not know that it was his last day for him on earth, Kelechi my son is dead, and I will not see him again.

“Nnamdi Kanu don’t know who my son is, but my son died because of him, he will pay for his blood, Nnamdi Kanu will pay for Kelechi’s blood.”

That was the reaction of a mother of a member of the proscribed secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who was allegedly killed by soldiers according to his brother.

The man, Onyema Isaac Ugo with Twitter handle @OnyemaIsaa, claims that his relation was killed by the soldiers in Umuahia last Friday.

In his social media lamentation which friends and other sympathisers reacted to, Ugo alleged that the late Kelechi was recruited into the Indigenous People of Biafra, but that he was felled by “the bullets of the army.”

Ugo wrote, “I told Kelechi to stop this IPOB of a thing.

“But he didn’t listen, because he has been brainwashed by NK. I don’t know if he was under a spell by IPOB. Today, where is Kelechi?”

Continuing, Ugo said that for days now, Kelechi’s mum and his sisters have been crying because of their son’s death

He claimed that the late Kelechi Metuh was a butcher in Anara market, but that he left his successful business to go to Umuahia “to meet his death.”
