Nigerian Army Claims it Fired Warning Shots, Denies Attacking Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB

APC National Publicity Secretary Bolaji Abdullahi

According to the IPOB leader, the soldiers "in a crude show of power" began to shoot sporadically as soon as they move down closer to his family home and in the process injured many people.

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu is now being held hostage at his Umuahia residence by personnel of the Nigerian Army.

The army which maintained that no life was lost in the incident urged the public to "disregard the rumours going round and the fictitious photographs of purported victims of attack".

The soldiers arrived at the community on Tuesday, barely 48 hours after the clash between the Army and IPOB members on Sunday evening, which left three people injured.

"Assuming, but not conceding that all they have said is true, there are still evidential wrongs against the people by the security team".

He said, "The Nigerian military and the police have perfected the act of lying and unfortunately some of you in the media have allowed them to get away with it which should not be so".

However, in a statement, the Nigerian Army has said allegations that it attacked anybody or killed anyone are totally false. "Buratai and his men are bringing war to us", he added.

This is far from the truth.

The South-East Governors' Forum has set-up a seven-member committee to investigate the recent clash between the Nigerian Army and the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) members in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

When contacted the Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, 14 Brigade, Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi, confirmed the incident.

The army continued that while the IPOB members pelted the military vehicles with stones and bottles, insisting it would not pass, warning shots were fired into the air, which dispersed the agitators.

Both the soldier and the innocent female passerby have been evacuated to the unit's Medical Inspection Room and are receiving treatment.
