The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has threatened to go after the children of the Abia State police commissioner, Ene Okon, should there be any killings at the funeral of his parents.
KanyiDaily had reported that Nnamdi Kanu’s father, Eze Okwu Kanu, who is the traditional ruler of Afara Ukwu Umuahia community in Abia State, and his wife, Ugoeze Sally Kanu, will be buried on February 14, 2020.
Ahead of the burial this week Friday, Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr Ene Okon said he will not allow IPOB members to participate in the burial.
According to him, if IPOB members were seen anywhere around the burial venue, the police would scatter the burial.
The CP said he had reached out to the traditional prime minister of Afaraukwu, Kanu’s hometown, to make it clear that the burial would not hold if IPOB members attended or participate in anything during the funeral.
In a swift reaction on his Facebook page, Nnamdi Kanu warned CP Okon to steer clear of his parents burial, threatening to seek vengeance the police children if anyone get killed during the event.
“If Inspector Okon and his commanders come to my father’s house to kill anyone on 14th February 2020 at my parents’ burial, we will hunt down their children,” Kanu wrote.
KanyiDaily recalls that CP Eno Okon had also made it clear that police will not spare Nnamdi Kanu if he sets foot in Abia for his parent’s burial or any other thing for that matter because he was declared wanted.
