Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has responded to criticisms of running away during the 2017 military invasion at his home in Afara Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State.

Recalled that Kanu fled the country after the army invaded his home on September 14th, 2017, during “Operation Python Dance II”.

Kanu later resurfaced few months ago in Israel which stirred up controversies as some Nigerians opined that Kanu should have faced the army rather than running away.

Kanu, reacted during a live radio broadcast from London on Saturday, he said he fled to Isreal because he did not have any weapon to face armed military men who stormed his house since it was the safest place for him to stay.

Kanu said

“I want to ask those that criticise me about what they have done in their life.
“Did you know that Nelson Mandela ran to Nigeria for safety during his time?

“I ran away because Jubril (Buhari) sent the military to my house to come and kill me and they expected me to stay and confront them, I’m unarmed just as IPOB members are unarmed group.

“No one in Nigeria has done what I have done. I came home and I confronted the army, I went to their court, I was unlawfully detained, I went home, conducted a rally and they sent their army to come and kill me.

“Nnia Nwodo, Okezie Ikpeazu, Obiano and Umahi were the ones that signed and brought the army to kill me.

“Yes, I fled to Israel because it is the safest place for me and I needed to stay alive and achieve Biafra republic. Tell those who said that I ran away to read their history book, they will find out that all the popular human rights activists, both dead and alive ran away when it’s the best time to.”
