Nigeria In One Minute

10 months on, IPOB seeks Ojigbani’s whereabouts



Ten months after soldiers allegedly struck the ancestral home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in Afaraukwu, Umuahia, Abia State, his security officer, Emmanuel Ojigbani is still missing.

Ojigbani, said to be the IPOB Zonal Coordinator in Enugu State, was reported to have been at Kanu’s house when soldiers on Operation Python Dance stormed the residence in September last year in search of Kanu.

He disappeared since the incident that claimed some lives and property.

Members of the outlawed group said they were no longer comfortable with his long silence and disappearance.

IPOB Spokesperson, Obiora Nwokoye, told The Guardian in Enugu yesterday that Ojigbani, who joined the pro-Biafra group in 2015, had not returned home since the Afaraukwu incident.
