Prince Emmanuel Kanu, younger brother of the Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that soldiers have again invaded their Afaraukwu Umuahia family home in Abia State.

Kanu stated that the invasion by the soldiers took place on Sunday afternoon accusing the invaders of looting the palace and making away with such items as television, generating sets, clothes among others belongings of the family.

He called on the international community to prevail on the Nigerian Army to stop raiding their home, and to produce his bother whose whereabouts has remained unknown since after the house was raided on September 14.

However, the Desk Officer of Operation Python Dance in charge of Abia State said no household items were removed from Kanu’s home revealing that the operation was based on the intelligence that arms were hidden in the compound.

He said “the things removed were technical items”, adding that “somebody was arrested with weapon in the compound”.

The Army Officer who preferred to be simply identified as Desk Officer for the operation also said it was a joint operation with the police, and directed further enquiries to the police.
