The so-called Unknown Gunmen have said only the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), by the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration will restore peace to the southeast region.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the gunmen reportedly wrote letters to nine Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Anambra state, notifying them of their preparedness to launch an attack on the communities.
Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja following his arrest in Kenya in June 2021, is billed to appear in court again tomorrow (Wednesday) in continuation of his trail.
The hoodlums warned security agents to get ready for action in ‘Biafra Land’.
The local government areas listed to be attacked are: Ihiala, Aguata, Nnewi South, Awka North, Awka South, Idemili North, Idemili South, Orumba South, Orumba North and Anambra East.
Already, many of these Local Government Areas have been attacked by the unknown gunmen, and in several instances, civilians and security agents were killed.
“Go and tell the President (Buhari) to release our oga (boss), Onyendu, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, or face continuous war – Final Warning”, multiple media reports on Tuesday quoted the gunmen as saying.
