Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has raised the alarm over alleged plans by some Northerners to launch fresh attacks in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Kanu raised the alarm via his Facebook page on Thursday.

According to him, he obtained intel that Fulanis were plotting to attack the state.


“Fulanis/Muslims in Owerri, Imo State, supported by Fulani elements from 32 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, have concluded plans to start a deadly attack in Owerri, suburb, other towns in Imo. Military uniforms have been distributed to these Jihadists and terrorists from the Sahel,” he said.

According to Kanu, he got the information from a meeting that the Fulanis/Muslims allegedly held in a mosque in Owerri on Tuesday.
