Kanu said that the barrister had gone to military base in Suleja to confirm that members of the IPOB are detained there including one Elvis Ngozi and 109 others.

”On coming out to Suleja- Bida Road, an unmarked white Hilux just crossed and opened fire on him,” Kanu explained.

The IPOB leader said what convinced him that Nigerian security agents carried out the attack was that the lawyer told him that before leaving the military base he (the lawyer) discovered that his left back tyre was marked with black paint in the rim.

According him, the lawyer had to run into Suleja Area Command and made a report.

“Security agents attempted to assassinate IPOB lawyer to frighten other lawyers from standing in for IPOB members.

” The leadership of IPOB has come to realize that Nigeria has decided to engage IPOB in war…they will soon reap the fruit of their evil seed.”

The IPOB leader, hence asked for the immediate release of all Biafran ladies in detention.

You are now the WHO president abi? Twale. Use the analysis to build schools, create roads, empower youths. Charge your lap technicians, your doctors and nurses on research and development of the vaccine, instead of wasting Edo’s money on foreign medicines that are even a donation. What is really wrong with our leaders in this country?
