The Nigeria Police, has released a statement contradicting the earlier statement issued by Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, that claimed his client’s residence was heavily attacked by Military men.
Kanu had said that Soldiers stormed his residence and injured occupants, in an attempt to take his life.
However, the Police reacting said that Military personnel were only carrying out a procession to test a new armoured carrier.“There was no attack on the home of Nnamdi Kanu”, the Abia Police Commissioner, Leye Oyebade, revealed via telephone, on Sunday evening.
“What happened was that the Military was parading a new armoured carrier, and passed through Nnamdi Kanu’s residence.
“It was while they were passing, that some people threw stones and other things at them”, Oyebade explained.
The Police Chief added that normalcy has been restored, and no life was lost during the minor skirmish, and that Kanu was neither targeted nor arrested.
However, Kanu’s Lawyer had painted a different account of what transpired at the home of the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, saying there was a siege.
