Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, family, has asked the federal government not to manhandle their son deported to the country.
His younger brother, Emmanuel Kanu, who spoke in Umuahia said Nnamdi stood on the part of truth and committed no crime to deserve any persecution.
He stated that Nnamdi was only asking for the freedom of Biafrans which is their fundamental human right, hence, his right should be respected.
He said the whole world is watching how the federal government would handle him.
Prince Emmanuel noted that his brother had awakened the consciousness of Nigerians about the goings-on in the country.
“My brother stood for the truth, and Heaven is on the part of anyone standing for the truth. He committed no crime, and the whole world is watching”.
Meanwhile, there has been uneasy calm across Umuahia when the news filtered in.
People were observed discussing the matter in hushed tones with some people still bewildered about the entire scenario while some doubted the reality of the news.
