Sit-at-home: Kanuʼs lawyer mourns victims of Operation Python Dance II

...Wants UN, EU, Israel, Britain, others to probe events leading to Kanu’s disappearance

ABUJA - Lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor has mourned victims of Operation Python Dance II who met their untimely death last year September at the hands of agents of the Nigerian army.

In a statement released to The Biafra Times correspondent on Friday tagged “Remembering The “Black Day” At Afara-Ukwu And The Attendant Unending Agony,” in commemoration to the senseless massacre of innocent Biafra agitators and the continued missing of the IPOB leader, the legal practitioner bemoaned the ungodly desecration of the Afaraukwu palace by soldiers and the false narratives employed by agents of the government in concealing the atrocious act perpetrated at Kanuʼs home.

He pleaded with members of the international community, the European Union, United Nations and other well-meaning international organizations to quickly intervene and trigger serious moves for the unravelling of the whereabouts of Kanu as well as all those killed during last year’s military invasion in Umuahia.

According to Ejiofor, “the freshness of the wound orchestrated by the military operation still remains fresh in his memory and I can perceive the blood of the hundreds of innocent civilians massacred by the Chief of Army Staff foot soldiers, at the behest of the Presidency.

“I can still hear the cries of these innocent blood; I can still feel the Agony; they are all very fresh in my mind.

“I can still hear the deafening sounds of the sporadic gunshots that brought down innocent/defenceless and unarmed men and women, in the home of the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (Nnamdi Kanu); IPOB leader’s home and the entire Ancient Kingdom of Afaraukwu were desecrated by the ungodly monsters under a covert operation styled ‘Operation Python Dance’.

“I remember vividly the last words of my Client on this cursed day; it went thus: ‘Ejiofor my house is under siege,  Soldiers are forcing themselves in, shooting at everything on sight, you can hear the sound of the sporadic gunshots from the background; please alert the World on the development in my house; I can see it clearly from my room that they have gunned down many of my people downstairs, as they advance rapidly to my room; my life is no longer safe; tell the  British Government, USA and the World that Nigerian Government should be held responsible if anything happened to me’.

“The above, were the last few disheartening and emotional laden words dropped by my Client (Nnamdi Kanu) on the face of imminent danger; the danger that eventually took him away to a destination that has remained a mystery till today.

“The invading Soldiers massacred, butchered, killed every living thing on sight, and destroyed non-living objects in Nnamdi Kanu’s home before abducting him and his parents.

“Political narratives created by the demonic Government of the day to conceal the traces of this heart wrenching genocidal harvest of blood of innocent and defenceless members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), were neutralized by fate and destiny.

“Rampaging Soldiers largely consisting of Boko Haram converts that were integrated into the Military; massacred defenceless and unarmed civilian populace, in an operation that has being widely condemned by responsible foreign Governments, International Organizations and Comity of Nations; in an operation that offends all known extant Rules on engagement and international best practices; in an operation that reputable global Human Right Body, Amnesty International, hugely indicted the Nigerian Military for the genocidal massacre of over 1000 (One Thousand) civilian populace in Afaraukwu and in its environs.

“The recent discovery of about 58 (fifty-eight) decomposed bodies of members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in various forests in and around Afaraukwu Kingdom is an attestation to the facts that this crime against humanity can never be swept under the carpet.

“Today, these fallen heroes and heroines are remembered across the Nation, it is indeed a time for sober reflection, it is a time for the United Nation, European Union, United States of America, United Kingdom, Israel, Russia and other responsible foreign Governments to beam their light on this Nation called Nigeria; particularly as they prepare for another round of genocide in the name of Operation Python Dance III.

“Right to self-determination is a universal right recognized under various notable Covenants and Instrument of the United Nations. Article 20(1) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Right domesticated under our Law by the Ratification and Enforcement Act Cap 10 Laws of the Federation 1990 designated this Right to self-determination as inalienable, sacrosanct and unquestionable. This right can neither be suppressed nor taken away under any guise.

“We use this moment of sober reflection to once again call on responsible International Organizations, Foreign Governments, United Nations, European Union, British Government and the Comity of Nations, to immediately activate possible diplomatic channel that would ensure prompt probe of this crime against humanity, and accurate inventory of murderous military onslaught in the home of Nnamdi Kanu and his whereabouts till date. Today marked it exactly one year the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)-Nnamdi Kanu, was kidnapped/abducted in this bloody invasion of his home by the Nigeria Soldiers.

“It is our demand, that Nnamdi Kanu be immediately released by the Buratai led Military, wherever he is being kept. By virtue of my last communication with my client before he was whisked away, I am under no illusion as to his whereabouts, the soldiers that took him away on the 14th day of September 2017, should give account of where they kept him.

“Era of Hide and Seek Game is now Over! These chilling facts can no longer be suppressed!”
