Video: 2019: Tells Us Nnamdi Kanu’s Whereabout Otherwise We Are Not Going To Vote, Wife Of IPOB Leader Says

THE wife of Nnamdi Kanu,the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Uchechi Kanu, has said they won’t vote in the coming general election if the whereabouts of his husband is not made known by the Nigerian authorities.



Kanu stated this in an interview with British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC).

Her husband’s home which also houses his parents alongside other members of the family was raided by soldiers of the Nigerian Army during a military operation in September 2017 and since then the IPOB leader has not been seen again publicly.

His secessionist group, IPOB, was proscribed a terrorist group by the Federal Government, and this has been confirmed in the court of law.

He was released on bail in April 2017 with three sureties before his disappearance and the court has mandated his sureties to either produce him or face the consequences of their action.

Kanu lawyers, led by one Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had told the court that they have not seen or heard from their client since September 14, 2017, when the Nigerian Army invaded his house “on a murderous raid, where life and mortar bullets were fired on unarmed and defenceless populace, leaving 28 persons dead and abducting many” asking the Army to produce his client.

But the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, in a counter-affidavit he filed in opposition to the suit, told the court that Kanu was never in custody of the Nigeria Army.

Delivering judgement, the court exonerated the Army saying no evidence was placed before the court to prove that Kanu was in Army custody, adding that Ejiofor failed to convince the court that Kanu was seen with soldiers at any time.

“The doctrine of last seen”, which the applicant relied upon, eventhough applicable in murder cases, has no statutory backing,” it held.

Mrs Kanu said the Nigerian government must tell the world where her husband is as they were the last contact with him.

“He was trapped in the house when they went to invade the house and that was when he called me. He said can you hear the gun shots? I panicked and I started screaming ‘what’s going on?’ and he said to me, the military men are here. They are shooting.

“Nnamdi Kanu’s issue should be the number one thing. Where is he? You need to provide him or at least tell us where he is. You need to at least do something before you run an election, otherwise we are not going to vote,” she said.

As at press time, HEADLINE is yet to get clarification if the ‘we’ she meant has the South-East inclusive given the fact that that was how her husband puts it when he urged the Igbo residents in Anambra not to vote during the state governorship election last year.

On why his husband kept his family in the safety of Britain and expected other people to die for a cause he could not bring his family in to fight for, Mrs. Kanu said such statements were insensitive, adding that the family has been the worst hit since he disappeared.

“Do they even know what I go through? I can’t even explain,” she said, adding that Mr. Kanu’s immediate family is homeless and suffering too.

“Is that not sacrifice?” she said, adding that such insinuation could only be made by those she called “Typical stupid African person”.

She also disagreed that what her husband was venturing into was illegal. “How was it illegal?

“Why should it be treasonous? One asking for self-determination, how is that a crime?” She asked.

Dellusions. She really didn't see what her husbsnd was doing as illegal which is just her either being ignorant or having selective amnesia. This is a man that threatened to kill the president.

So she thinks she made a sacrifice by being in London while thousands of luves were put on the front lines to march for a cause that was potentially violent?

"We won't vote" who are the "we"? She and her family? I doubt she has a voter card anyway so I dont expect her to but who shouldnt vote? I thought her husband said the Anambra elections wont hold (we all know how thay ended)

They had people's ears and hearts and yet messed it up; they could have formed a political party with IPOB and went to the senate to cause really changes but one man had Messiah's complex and let it go to poo.

Kanu brought calamity upon himself when he began to carry himself about like a tingod & insult other ethnic groups.

if he had been true to the ideals of his struggle & done so in a manner that elicited debate rather than hate among other ethnic groups, he would have achieved more & gotten more support across other regions.

The Fulani that are massacaring people across Nigeria, which calamity did they recieve? Did Buhari do anything to them? They are still killing people as we speak, but Kanu never killed anyone or took up arms. But what is paining you is Kanu's speeches while for others , it is their AK47 that is doing the speeches.

Kanu went through what he went through because he is an Igbo man. Had he been Fulani, nothing would have happend.

The reporter in this video is really stupid. Asking Uchechi Kanu that her husbsnd protected her and the kids but sent others to die. What kind of foolish journalist is this? In any struggle, it is the women and kids that are first protected. Why isnt this journalist going to investigate why the authorities are killing unarmed IPOB?

Im quite surprised that BBC is still using half baked journalists such as this one.

What did her husband do that was illegal? He asked for the independence of his people? The same right that people like Zik, Awolowo and Eyo Ita asked the British authorities for which you Nigerians now celebrate every 1st October?

Nnamdi Kanu threatend to kill the president? Have you even asked your self what the law says should happen if a person verbally threaten the presidents life? Thousands if not millions of people who hate Buhari verbally threaten Buhari's life and wish him death on a daily bases. Its nothing new. There is no President in the world who doesnt recieve thousands of verbal death threats from his haters everyday.

The so called thousands of lives put in the frontline were put there by your Nigerian government that is killing unarmed people expressing their right to self determination accorded to them under international laws which Nigeria is signatory to. As for IPOB having the potential to be violent, what did your government do against the movements that have long moved past "potential violence" to armed and killing people? Herdsmen, Nigeria Delta militants and cultists? All armed and killing people, but your headache is "potential to be violent".

I laugh in Igbo

The law on Self Determination was made to stop colonialism. Catalonia has been shouting self determination since the 90's and no one (E.U, U.N or the USA) has given 1 f***.
