Guns, Machetes and Accusations Near Nnamdi Kanu’s Home

Cell phone videos of unrest around the home of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu quickly went around social media late Sunday evening with a camera person alleging an ambush by the Nigerian Army in Umuahia, the Abia State capital. In the video was a man injured on the leg by gun shot wound.

As things begin to settle down through the night, revelations about the incident have since surfaced. While questioned by journalists, the Nigerian Army Public Relations Officer at 14 Brigade Ohafia, Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi, shared that soldiers were on routine patrol as part of its recent drills in the SOuth East known as “Operation Python Dance II.” He denied that any IPOB member was shot by a soldier. However, he accused IPOB of attacking and injuring some soldiers with machetes and stones as the convoy passed by the area.
