Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia.
After one year of disappearance of His Royal Majesty, Eze Sir Israel Kanu, the father of the leader of Indigenous people of Biafra, (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, his subjects are demanding his whereabouts.
The people of Afaraukwu autonomous community who came under the aegis of Afaraukwu Development Union are calling for the return of their Monarch who has disappeared since the invasion of the military of the palace of Eze Kanu on the 14th of September 2017.
According to the leaders and stakeholders of the three communities that make up Afaraukwu, they have no business politicising the disappearance of their traditional ruler, and warned that people should stop trying to score cheap political points with the monarch’s disappearance.
The leaders made their position known to newsmen at the palace of Eze Eddy Ibeabuchi in the company of Eze P. K. Ukaegbu, Chief J. C. Ezebuiro, the president general of Afaraukwu Development Union and Mr. Alozie Irokansi, the youth leader.
They say they are hopeful the Abia state governor will help as he promised to locate Eze Kanu and bring him back wherever he may be.
The whereabouts of Eze I. O. Kanu, his wife and son Nnamdi have remained unknown till date.
