The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday accused the Nigerian security agents of trying to assassinate his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
The IPOB leader claimed that his lawyer’s home was invaded by security agents and two members of his group were killed in the process.
He disclosed this in a post on his Twitter handle, @MaziNnamdiKanu.
Kanu said: “This morning, Nigerian forces invaded the home of my lawyer, Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, to assassinate him and his family members. Sadly, the forces killed two #IPOB family members.
