"Dethrone Nnamdi Kanu's father now or we would do it ourselves, strip him naked and burn his palace"- Umuahia Youths tell Governor Ikpeazu

60 secs Minimum - 8 mins Maximum Read
Youths in Umuahia under the aegis, Umuahia Youth Movement, have issued

a 24-hour ultimatum to Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to

dethrone the father of the leader of the now-outlawed secessionist

group IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu or they would take the laws into their hands

by dethroning him, stripping him naked and burning down his palace.



Kanu's father is the ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu community in Umuahia.

The decision of the youths is against the backdrop of the civil unrest

witnessed in their community following the clash between IPOB members

and the Nigerian Army.



In a letter addressed to the state governor, the youths said they are

demanding the monarch's dethronement because he failed to call his son

to order but rather encouraged him in his "madness". The letter reads



"With tears and sorrow, the Umuahia Youth Movement respectfully write

to request the dethronement of Nnamdi Kanu's father as a traditional

ruler of our clan. It beats our imagination that a man who calls

himself a royal father and an elder could not call his son to order

but rather encourage him in his madness has have plunged Umuahia city

to a great crisis today. Sir, recall that Umuahia have been the most

peaceful capital city in Nigeria to live and do business but just

because of one man, we are today facing the wrath of the federal

government of Nigeria. Our shops, markets, schools, churches and all

banks have been shut down.

For the past three days we have been indoors for fear of been attacked

by the military just because of one man whose father is our

traditional ruler. Based on the above, we hereby request that he be

dethroned within 24 hours or we will take the laws into our hands and

dethrone him and even strip him unclad and raze his house. We appeal

to every well meaning Nigerian as well to prevail on governor Ikpeazu

to as a matter of urgency dethrone Nnamdi Kanu's father."



The youths called for the continued stay of the military's Operation

Python Dance in their community. They alleged that if the soldiers are

withdrawn, IPOB members would attack them and rob residents of the

community of their belongings.
