Nnamdi Kanu, leader the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), may not be returning to Nigeria for his parents’ funeral.
Kanu gave the hint in a broadcast via London-based Radio Biafra at the weekend, adding that he is monitoring developments on the event in Abia state from abroad.
He revealed also that the burial ceremony would be broadcast live.
The IPOB leader who has been away since 2017 when soldiers raided his father’s residence in Abia the “whole world will be watching” on that day, while reacting to the police’ statement that they would disrupt the burial ceremony if IPOB members attend the event.
“Instead of them to be remorseful for causing the death of my father and mother, all they are saying is we will come and shoot at people that attend the burial,” he said.
“They should come and shoot; our CCTV is there live… so that when it starts, they won’t deny it.
“It will be relayed live so that when our people’s madness starts, they won’t go back to propaganda and say, ‘it is secession, they are trying to secede.”
