Leader of the Indigenous People’s of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Sunday said he would meet with United Nations officials in Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday.
Kanu had addressed the European Parliament in Strasbourg two weeks ago, during which he argued for international support for a Biafran state to be carved out of Nigeria.
He said: “I’m looking forward to leading the Indigenous People of Biafra to a vital meeting with United Nations officials in Geneva, Switzerland on September 17, 2019.
The international community is fully aware of the plight of Biafrans in the hands of the Nigerian government.”
In a separate tweet, he alleged that unidentified Nigerian security agents in a white Toyota Hilux van were monitoring activities in his father’s compound in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State.
The alleged surveillance coincided with the first year anniversary of the killings of 28 IPOB members at his father’s house.
The IPOB members were killed by a combined team of soldiers, policemen and Department of State Services which invaded the compound on September 14, 2018.
“The Fulani assassins in a white Toyota Hilux loitering in front of my house in Isiama-Afaraukwu tonight better retrace their steps. Whoever sent them will be exposed and held accountable. The Efulefus that invited them on this dark day are in for one almighty shock.
“September 14 is #SaboteurDay
We shall observe a minute silence at 12 noon Biafraland time to remember the #Gallant28 that fell at my residence in Afara-Ukwu and all Biafrans that were murdered through Operation Python Dance II. We will never forget nor forgive,” he stated.
