IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu’s mum dies

Ugoeze Sally Meme Kanu, mother of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu is dead.

Kanu, who announced the mother’s death on Sunday, said she died August 30, 2019 in Germany after doctors battled unsuccessfully over a protracted illness she suffered.

The freedom fighter linked federal government to the death, citing alleged soldiers’ invasion of his Umuahia, Abia State residence in September 2017.

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.”

He however pledged not to be deterred by the death in his struggle for the actualization of Biafra republic.

“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.”

The IPOB leader, who disclosed his mum died long before his visit to the UN and several other engagements, described such resilience as a demonstration that the loss of his mother has not dampened his spirit.

He was however silent on the burial arrangements as well as reasons behind the belated announcement.

Court to consider whether Johnson broke law with EU letter

In the wake of Donald Trump’s decision to hastily withdraw all US troops from Syria, much attention has been heaped upon the subsequent assault on Kurdish positions by Turkish armed forces and Washington’s withering diplomatic standing in the Middle East.

But by upending the balance of power in Syria, Trump appears to have left the door open for an old foe to take full advantage of the power vacuum that appears to be forming: Russia. What happens next?
