The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has apologised to the Commissioner of Police in Abia State, Eneh Okon over the threat on his children.
Giving reasons he made the threats at first, kanu cited the security siege in his community, coupled with the outburst of senior security operatives.
According to him, it was wrong for him to have made such comment against the CP’s family members.
This Friday, mourners in Biafra will come together to attend the funeral for my beloved parents, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Nmenme Kanu.
During this time of mourning, the Indigenous People of Biafra are living in a constant state of fear.
The Abia State Commissioner of Police is threatening to disrupt the funeral and there continues to be a large military presence in the area, which has a history of inflicting violence against the IPOB.
He said this was due to the knowledge that the mourners gathering in his compound were in grave danger.
In this time of immense grieving and anger, I made threats against the children of the Police Commissioner and other Nigerian officials on my radio programmme, Radio Biafra.
This was wrong and I sincerely apologize. Children should always be off-limits.
that shining a global spotlight on the actions of the Government will prevent them from inciting violence against my people. In doing so, I went too far.
It is my great hope that the Indigenous People of Biafra can mourn in peace on Friday and can live in peace every single day forward.
