The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Friday announced that its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will soon return to Nigeria.
This is to enable him attend the burial of his parents, Eze Israel Kanu and Ugoeze Sally.
Both parents had died between a difference of four months and are due for burial on February 14, 2020.
Kanu, who had escaped from Nigeria has vowed to return home. Ahead of his return, there has been called for his arrest to face his treason trial including a threat by the Abia State Police Command to arrest him if found anywhere within the state.
However, IPOB in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful on Friday said:
“The burial of our leader’s parents will be 14th of February 2020.
“We are not going to disclose our security arrangements because they are much enemies who wish to destroy or destabilize every effort made for the successful burial of the father and mother of our leader.
“IPOB is on ground and nothing will change our resolve to protect the environment.
“We are peaceful and will maintain it to last point. But nobody should try IPOB.”
