Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has announced the death of his mother, Ugoeze Sally Meme Kanu.
Kanu, who announced this on Sunday morning, said his mother died on August 30 in Germany after doctors failed to cure her of a protracted illness.
The IPOB leader accused the federal government of contributing to the death of his mother, with the incident of September 2017, where soldiers had allegedly invaded his house in Umuahia, Abia State.
He said, “Watching her children being hunted and killed by the federal government was the cause of her illness, and today we have lost her.
“I had said before that I was ready to sacrifice anything for Biafra, and today I have sacrificed my mum. We will not be dettered, we shall continue to fight for the freedom of our people.”
Kano said that his mother died long before his visit to the United Nations and several other fiancees, which is proof that death did not worsen his mind.
Freedom fighters, however, could not say why the announcement came two months after the death and did not reveal arrangements for his mother’s funeral.
