2 min read

Leadership of the Igbo National Council, INC, has advised the Nigeria military to direct their energy towards winning the war against terrorism in the nation and desist from her actions against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kalu.
This is coming shortly after the ancestral home of Nnamdi Kalu was invaded by Nigerian soldiers, two weeks to his father’s burial.
President of the Igbo group, Chilos A.C. Godsent, in a release made available to TNN described the invasion as a psychological warfare against the Igbo nation.
According to him, “the attention of the Igbo National Council (INC) has been drawn to the unlawful, unwarranted and uncomfortable military invasion of the ancestral home of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) barely two weeks to the burial of the father of the IPOB leader.
“Consequently, we view this unprovoked action of the Nigerian military as an assault and war on the entire Igbo Nation.
“Once again, we wish to urge the Nigerian government to call on the military authority to order before they provoke a civil disobedience in the entire eastern region of Nigeria.”
The group also called on the president of the Federal republic of Nigeria, “On the foregoing, INC therefore calls on the Muhammadu Buhari led federal government to order the Nigeria military to withdraw from this unwarranted invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s ancestral home as the action amounts to gross violation of the fundamental rights Nnamdi Kanu’s family and the entire people of the community.
“We urge the Nigerian military to go and fight the Boko Haram insurgency and Herdsmen that are terrorizing, adopting and killing innocent Nigerians along the Kogi – Abuja highway and the Lagos – Ibadan express way on daily basis.
