Nnamdi Kanu’s Family Write Letter To UN, EU And US, Claiming Nigerian Army Stole From Their Home During The Recent Raid

Nnamdi kanu’s family, have alleged that operatives of the Nigerian army stole valuables from their home during the recent raid on October 8.

In a bid to show their grievance over the alleged act they have petitioned the United Nations, the European Union and other foreign countries, over the claim.

Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor signed the petition on behalf of Kanu’s father, Eze Isreal Okwu-Kanu and the traditional head of Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, in Abia state.

Nnamdi Kanu’s family, in separate letters sent by Ejiofor to the international bodies and foreign countries, claimed that the “CCTV footage” attached to the said letters “picked” the alleged looting by Nigerian soldiers and policemen, Sahara Reporters reports.

The letter read in part: “We are solicitors to the family of His Royal Majesty, Eze Isreal Okwu-Kanu, hereinafter referred to as ‘our client’ and on whose standing instruction we file this communication with the British government.

“It is our brief, that on the 8th day of October, 2017, our client’s son’s home (Nnamdi Kanu) in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, in Abia State was invaded, and violently looted by rampaging Nigerian soldiers and their police counterparts.

“The CCTV footage which picked the horrendous raids, revealed the brazen looting and carting away of valuables and household equipment by the above named security agents.”

The separate letters were addressed to the Resident Representatives of UN and EU, the US Ambassador, the Russian Ambassador to Nigeria, the High Commissioner of the British High Commission; and the High Commissioner, the Canadian High Commission.

There is yet to be a response to the letters written.
