Kanu Vows to be in Nigeria for His Mother’s Burial

Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to be in Nigeria in other to give his mother,Ugoeze Sally, a befitting burial and pay his last respect.

This was made known through the Director Media and Publicity of the group, Emma Powerful, who said Nnamdi Kanu was not afraid of visiting Nigeria for his mother’s burial.

While the date for the burial has not been fixed yet, Kalu assured that when it was done, he would be present for the program.

“The decision regarding our leader’s coming home to Biafraland during his mother’s burial has not been concluded. It is important we communicate properly to the general public that as soon as the arrangement for his coming is perfected, he will come home,” he said.

Powerful also urged members not to be confused nor panic over the new jewish code of dressing by the faithful that they were seeing in recent weeks saying they were several jewish worship centers in the South East.

“We commend Jewish prayer group in Owerri, yesterday, for their doggedness and discipline. Those with white garments and Jewish caps are our church members; they were coming back from church service. We have branches all over Biafra- land. They were embarking on sensitisation movement to let the world and the Jewish community know that our people need Biafra to become an independent nation,” Powerful said.

The IPOB leader mother who died on August 30 claimed that the trauma of the Nigerian soldiers storming their Afaraukwu home in Umuahia on September 14, 2017 during the Operation Python Dance exercise was what lead to her demise after getting traumatised and took ill, and never recovered.

“Watching her children being hunted and killed by the federal government was the cause of her illness, and today we have lost her,” he said. He, however, pledged not to be deterred by the death in his struggle for the actualisation of Biafra.

“I said before that I was ready to sacrifice anything for Biafra, and today I have sacrificed my mum. We will not be deterred, we shall continue to fight for the freedom of our people.” The IPOB leader, who disclosed his mum died long before his visit to the UN and several other engagements, described his resilience as a demonstration that the loss of his mother has not dampened his spirit.
