The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has alleged that a combined team of police and military invaded his lawyer, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor’s residence in Oraifite, Anambra State.
Kanu, who claimed that the combined team invaded Ejiofor’s residence in the early hours of Monday alleged that two people were killed while several others were injured.
In a statement he personally signed, the IPOB leader warned that those behind the attack would pay dearly for it.
The statement reads: “Confirmed reports indicate that a combined team of Nigeria police and military assassination squad invaded the home of my lawyer Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor in Oraifite Anambra State this morning, December 2 in a bid to kill him and his family. Sadly three innocent Biafrans were killed by this invading Fulani force at his residence.
“This comes on the heels of yet another killing of two IPOB family members who were peacefully gathered in Arondizuogu yesterday 1 December. Their bodies are still in the morgue. Fulani caliphate police and army must know that the time is fast approaching when British diplomatic clout and protection may not be enough to shield them from the consequences of their daily crimes against innocent Biafrans. Attacking the home of my lawyer is a step too far and the only effect it will have is to hasten the disintegration of Nigeria.
“There is a United Nations Mission, US Embassy, British High Commission and other highbrow foreign diplomatic presence in Nigeria who should take note of this ugly development and convey the same to their home countries. It is their responsibility to ensure this wanton brutality, lawlessness and anarchy being engineered by the Fulani caliphate led by Abba Kyari’s government against the people of Biafra is duly noted for what it is, an act of war.
“Those responsible for this deadly assault know they will pay dearly for it, they know, it’s only a matter of time.”

Sowore Vs DSS: National Assembly May One Day Be Invaded, Says Reps Member
Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu from Delta State said if the invasion of the federal high court allegedly by the DSS is not properly put to check, the National Assembly may one day be invaded.
It will be recalled that some operatives of the DSS broke into the court while in session to rearrest the convener of #Revolution Now protest, Omoyele Sowere barely 24 hours after his release from their detention facility last week Thursday in Abuja.
But the DSS had since denied swooping in on Sowore in the court. Miffed by the alleged invasion, the House at plenary on Tuesday resolved to probe the matter to unravel the circumstances.
“Worried further that if this action is not properly put to check, the National Assembly may one day be invaded and the relevant security agencies will claim not knowing who the offenders are,” Elumelu said.
Elumelu in the motion canvassed for adherence and respect to the concept of separation of powers as enshrined in the laws of Nigeria, fearing that if the invasion was not checked and offenders punished, it might degenerate to National Assembly someday.
He said: “The House notes with dismay, the exhibition of thuggery, brute force, lawlessness, contempt and disregard for the rule of law by yet to be identified persons within the precinct of the Federal high court, Abuja on the 6th day of December, 2019.
“Further Notes that the videos emerging in public domain shows these unidentified person trying to bundle Omoleye Sowore and his co-accused Olawale Bakare away from the courtroom, while Sowore’s supporters were resisting them, which is an abuse to the sanctity of the courtroom.
Concerned that the men of the civil society claims that the unidentified masked man are agents of the Department of the state services (D.S.S).
“The Department of State Services has denied through their spokesman Peter Afunanya that its personnel were never involved in the incident
“Concerned further that section 4,5 and 6 of the 1999 Constitution as amended guarantees the separation of powers and the independence of every arm of Government.
“A situation where one arm is seen to be overpowering another in the course of dispensing her duties, will definitely spell doom for the separation of powers as enshrined in the Constitution.
“Worried that the actions of these unidentified persons disrupted judicial proceedings on the 6th day of December 2019 and made the presiding judge to abandon her duty post because of safety concerns.
This is a complete desecration of the temple of justice and such an action should be completely discouraged. “Worried further that if this action is not properly put to check, the National Assembly may one day be invaded and the relevant security agencies will claim not knowing who the offenders are. “
Aware that the invasion of the Federal high court Abuja runs contrary to the avowed assurances of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria “Further Aware that physically assaulting Mr. Omoleye Sowore and his co-defendant Olawale Bakare by the yet to be identified persons inside the court room is the highest act of sacrilege against the judicial arm of government and a complete disrespect to the rule of law.”
Adopting the motion, the House mandated its committees on National Security and Intelligence, Judiciary and Human Rights respectively to investigate the event and report back to the House within two weeks.
Two Ex-Govs In War Of Words At Airport
A report by Daily Trust indicate that two former governors of Sokoto state, Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa and Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko engaged in a war of words at the Sultan Abubakar III International Airport, Sokoto on Monday, December 9.
Bafarawa was said to have shunned Wamakko who stood to greet him at the VIP lodge of the airport on his arrival.
According to the report, Bafarawa’s action was the recent statement made by his predecessor, which termed him as a seasonal migrant to Sokoto state.
“You said I am a seasonal visitor to Sokoto, why are you greeting me. I know my father and grand father were born and died here, I can even show you their graves. Can you show me the grave of your grand father?,” he allegedly asked Wamakko.
Wamakko was said to have responded by saying: “I don’t want to know where your father and grant father are buried. All I know is that you are a seasonal migrant in Sokoto, that is all.
“There are other people whose parents and grant parents have been buried here but you called them seasonal migrants as well. So just go and face your businesses.”
The duo, however, boarded the same flight to Abuja after the hot exchange of words. Wamakko, now a senator, deputized Bafarawa for almost eight years before he voluntarily resigned to avoid impeachment.
The senator later succeeded Bafarawa after defeating his anointed candidate who is now the minister of police affairs, Alhaji Muhammadu Maigari Dingyadi in the Sokoto state 2007 governorship election. Meanwhile, a recent media report revealed that former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, paid himself and his former deputy N525 million two days before they left office.
According to the report, official documents and a bank statement show that Yari was paid N350 million two days before he left office. The money was paid from the state government’s gratuity funds under the pension sub-account with a new generation bank branch in Gusau, the state capital on Monday, May 27.
Also, the then outgoing deputy governor, Ibrahim Wakkala, was paid N175 million from the same account.
