The disappearance of the leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has continued to generate concern and anxiety among some of his adherents.
The latest to join the call is the Aba Province of the Anglican Church which at the weekend asked the Nigerian Government to explain to Nigerians the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu, his wife, Sally and father, Eze Isreal Kanu.
Rising from the 9th synod of the Diocese, Umuahia Province of Aba held at St Luke’s Church, Amakama, Olokoro, Umuahia Council Area of Abia State, the Church also opposed President Muhammadu Buhari’s intention to seek for a second term, advising him to drop the idea.
It also frowned at the lopsided appointments of the Federal Government which did not favour the South East geo political zone in the present administration. The synod also called on the government to explain what happened to them.
A communiqué issued by the Synod, “strongly frowned at the state of insecurity in the nation, particularly the inability of the government to clearly state what happened to HRH Eze Sir I. O. Kanu, his wife, Ugoeze Lady Sally Kanu and the son, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, all of Isiama Afaraukwu, concerning their present whereabouts, after the soldiers illegally invaded their home in the name of Operation Python Dance 11. The synod therefore called on the government to clearly state what happened to them.”
The communique condemned the violent activities of the herdsmen which it said “has led to pillage and destruction of villages and communities as well as dastardly massacre of innocent residents by the marauding herdsmen”, even as it condemned the “killing of the two Reverend Fathers in Benue State. There has been national outcry against the herdsmen and calls for Federal Government to declare them as terrorists; regrettably Government has continued to foot drag. The decision of the President to run for a second tenure should be reconsidered and the synod called on him to resign honourably.”
