Breaking! Nnamdi Kanu Apologises To Nigerian Government Ahead Of His Parents Funeral Today

Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra IPOB, has sent an apology to the Nigerian Government, vis-a-vis the Nigerian Police and some top Government officials.

This apology is coming ahead of the funeral of his father and mother today Friday in Abia State.

This is why Nnamdi Kanu is apologising: Recall that in the last few weeks, his local community where his parents reside has witnessed a large presence of the Nigerian military forces, who are standing guard in preparation to the funeral ceremony of the leader’s parents.

The Nigerian Police had previously issued a statement warning against the participation of IPOB in the funeral proceedings, stating that if any member of IPOB is found at the program, they will be arrested and the funeral service disrupted.

Mr Kanu got infuriated on hearing the police statement and went on Biafran radio to threaten that if the police interferes in the funeral proceedings of his late parents, IPOB will attack the children of the Commissioner of Police in Abia State and also children of some top Government officials.

However, yesterday, in what can be seen as a shocking turnaround, Mr Kanu issued a written apology on this Twitter account where he regrets and retrieves his threats to the Government officials stating that he went too far to drag their kids into the matter.

Read his full statement below:

“This Friday, mourners in Biafra will come together to attend the funeral for my beloved parents, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Nmenme Kanu.

“During this time of mourning, the Indigenous People of #Biafra are living in a constant state of fear.

‘The Abia State Commissioner of Police is threatening to disrupt the funeral and there continues to be a large military presence in the area, which has a history of inflicting violence against the IPOB.

“This has caused a range of emotions for me. I have now gone from an extreme sense of sadness after losing both of my parents, to an extreme sense of anger knowing that the mourners are in grave danger.

“In this time of immense grieving and anger, I made threats against the children of the Police Commissioner and other Nigerian officials on my radio program, Radio Biafra.

“This was wrong and I sincerely apologize. Children should always be off limits.

“It was my intention to bring global awareness to the threats and imminent danger the Government has placed on my family and community in hopes that shining a global spotlight on the actions of the Government will prevent them from inciting violence against my people.

“In doing so, I went too far.

“It is my great hope that the Indigenous People of Biafra can mourn in peace on Friday and can live in peace every single day forward.”

From all indications Mr Kanu will not be attending the funeral service of this parents.

President Buhari Reacts To The Killing Of CAN Chairman

President Muhammadu Buhari has given another condolence message over the killing of Lawan Andimi, the CAN Chairman in Adamawa State by wicked Boko Haram terrorists.

Late Reverend Lawan

Reverend Lawan was kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists in December 2019 and held captive since then.

Weeks ago he was shown in a video where he pleaded for the Government, the Christian body and other organizations to come to his aid and negotiate for his release.

However, the evil terrorists asked for a ransom of 2million pounds but were offered 50million naira by the Christian Association and sadly, they went ahead to kill him defying the negotiations underway.

On account of his sad murder, President Buhari had this to say:

“The terrorist killing of Lawan Andimi, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika, Adamawa State is cruel, inhuman and deliberately provocative. My deepest condolences to his family, the Christian community across Nigeria, and the Govt & people of Adamawa.

I am greatly saddened by the fact that the terrorists went on to kill him even while giving signals of a willingness to set him free by releasing him to third parties. This barbarism is condemnable. We will ensure that these terrorists pay a heavy price for their evil actions.

This incident has further strengthened our resolve as a Government, and the resolve of our gallant Armed Forces, to comprehensively defeat all terrorist groups sowing death, violence and destruction in our country and across West Africa.”
