BREAKING: Many Killed In The South-East, As Police Declares Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer, Wanted

The Police, in Anambra State, has declared Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a Lawyer, wanted, over the clash in Oraifite, which left at least four persons dead.
The Police Commissioner in the State, John Abang, in a video message circulated by the Spokesman of the Police, Haruna Mohammed, on Tuesday, urged members of the public with any information of his whereabouts, to avail the Police or any other Security Agencies of such information.

“Gentleman, I will like to let Nigerians to know that as we speak, Barrister Ejiofor, an IPOB member, and his cohorts, have been declared wanted by the Command.

“And I will seek the cooperation of law abiding Nigerians from the North, South, East, and West, wherever they find this individual, they should report to the nearest Police Station, or any other Security Agency, for possible arrest and prosecution”, Abang said.
Also, Haruna in an accompanying statement to the video message, wrote: “Police in Anambra State have declared wanted one Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor (a member of the proscribed IPOB), and his cohorts, over the alleged brutal murder of two Police Officers, in Oraifite yesterday.”
Mr. Ejiofor is one of the Lawyers defending the Leader of the proscribed secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, in his treason trial by the Federal Government.
Kanu is on self exile, after the Nigerian Army invaded his residence in Umuahia, Abia State, in 2017.

The Lawyer’s country home, in Oraifite community of Anambra State, was invaded by the Police, on Monday, during which two members of the group were allegedly killed.
Two Policemen were also killed during the incident.
The Police and IPOB have traded accusations over the killings.
While the Police claimed that IPOB members attacked first and killed the two Policemen, IPOB said that the Police killed two of its members first.
The Police stated that they invaded the apartment, following a reported case of abduction there.
Ejiofor’s house has been reportedly set ablaze by Security Agents, sent as a reinforcement to the community.
