Just few hours after the father of the indigenous People of Biafra expressed his fear that the attempt of the federal government of Nigeria to re-arrest his son Namdi Kanu is a means for federal governmetnt to kill his son,the next report now has it that the IPOB leader,Prince Nnamdi
Kanu has been attacked at home,put escaped death,while 3 persons died during the attack.

Recall also that the father of the IPOD leader,stated earlier before the incident that ''he cannot asked his son to give up his fight for his agitation'' of Biafra. Now the news that Nnamdi Kanu,the IPOB leader has been attacked right in his home now goes viral especially on social media. Is it true that Nnamdi Kanu has been attacked by a troop of Nigerian Army? ? Let's hear the statement released by Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi, Assistant Director Army Public Relations:

''The attention of 14 Brigade Nigerian Army, has been drawn to fictitious news going round especially on the social media that troops have invaded the home of Nnamdi Kanu and killed 3 persons.''

This is far from the truth. Rather, it was a group of suspected IPOB militants that blocked the road against troops of 145 Battalion while on show of force along FMC-Word Bank Road in Umuahia town, Abia State at about 6.00-6.30pm, today. They insisted that the military vehicles would not pass and started pelting the soldiers with stones and broken bottles to the point of injuring an innocent female passerby and a soldier, Corporal Kolawole Mathew

The troops fired warning shots in the air and the hoodlooms dispersed. No life was lost.

Therefore the public are kindly enjoined to disregard the rumours going round and the fictitious photographs of purported victims of attack. Both the soldier and the innocent female passerby have been evacuated to the unit's Medical Inspection Room and are receiving treatment.

We would like to use this opportunity to warn mischief makers threatening the peace and security of the country through falsehood such as above.

Members of the public are please requested to go about their lawful business and report any suspicious activity to the nearest police station or security outfit.

You are please requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
