Buratai knows Kanu’s whereabouts, family insists



Emmanuel , the younger brother of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu , has insisted that the Chief of Army Staff , Lt . Gen. Tukur Buratai , knows the whereabouts of the IPOB leader .

Kanu ’ s brother also said Buratai should be jailed for allegedly lying in a Federal High Court in Abuja concerning the invasion of their house by soldiers at Afara Ukwu, Umuahia , Abia State.

Buratai , in a counter-affidavit he filed in reaction to a suit court by his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had said soldiers chased a truck laden with weapons into a house said to belong to Kanu ’ s father in Afara Ukwu .

“ From the look of things , everyone now knows that Nnamdi Kanu was either killed or taken away by the military, ” he told our correspondent in a phone interview on Saturday .

Emmanuel said if the army had traced someone who had a truckload of ammunition to their house , the COAS should tell the world who the person was, when it happened , and the evidence to show that the military traced someone with dangerous weapons to their house .

He said , “ What is Gen. Buratai talking about? The question I am asking is why should Justice Binta Nyako listen to such lies? If she fails to jail Buratai , it means the judicial system in the country should not be trusted for any reason . He should be jailed for telling such cheap and childish lies. ”

Meanwhile , the Police Public Relations Officer in Abia State , Mr. Geoffrey Ogbonna , has said no IPOB member, allegedly arrested by soldiers in Aba, was handed over to the police command .

Ogbonna said the state Commissioner of Police , Mr. Anthony Ogbizi, had urged residents of the state to ignore IPOB members and go about their lawful duties.

He added that the CP had ordered a stop and search operation at all Anambra and Abia boundaries .
