Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has threatened the governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, over alleged brutalisation of the group’s members in the state by security operatives.

On October 27, Kanu took to Twitter to show a group of people whom he referred to as IPOB members scampering for safety.

According to him, security operatives invaded the venue of IPOB gathering in Ebonyi and shot at them.

However, in a tweet on Thursday, Kanu threatened Mr Umahi and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) saying they would account for the treatment of every Biafran.

“The brutalisation of our people in Ebonyi will surely be avenged. This is a formal notice to all, including Miyetti Allah and Dave Umahi that sooner than later, they will account for every injury, torture, and death of every Biafran. How, when and where is left for us to determine,” he wrote.

Kanu recently told the Federal High Court, Abuja, through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, that he was willing to return to the country to continue his trial if his safety would be guaranteed.

Justice Binta Nyako, who adjourned the case till January 16, said the only way she could guarantee Kanu’s safety was to keep him in prison.

She said that even judges are no longer safe in the country.
