Uchechi Kanu, wife of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has confirmed that she does not know the whereabouts of her husband’
Speaking to BBC Igbo in an exclusive interview on Monday, Kanu asserted that only members of IPOB are still waiting on the Nigeria Army to reveal the whereabouts of their leader.
She disclosed that IPOB members are still active and she doesn’t know whether her husband is dead or alive.
“The IPOB people are not sleeping. The army is going to tell them where their leader is. Keeping Nnamdi Kanu does not mean that IPOB is asleep,” she said.
I don’t know where my husband is. If he is dead or alive, I don’t know. People that are supposed to answer these questions are the army.
The last time I saw him was when the army came to shoot in our house. He called me and asked if I was hearing the gunshots. I heard the gunshots and started shouting and asked him what was wrong.
He said they are shooting and he is inside the house. That was the last time we spoke.”
During the interview, she added that she believes Nigerians will not allow an Igbo person lead the country. She said if Nigerians had allowed the late Chukwuemeka Ojukwu to lead, he “wouldn’t have failed.”
