Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has lashed out at those who claim he can’t return home for his parent’s burial in February due to his Government imposed status as a wanted political refugee.
Kanu, who was on bail while facing an alleged treasonable offense, disappeared from the country in a controversial circumstance shortly after his family house in Isiama Afara Ukwu in Abia State was allegedly attacked by the Nigerian Army in 2017 which led to the killing of many of his followers.
He lost his father, Eze Israel Kanu, and his mother, Ugoeze Sally Kanu, in quick succession last year.
In his words, while replying to the popular speculations, he said:
“Abia state is my home, I’m not scared of returning”
