The mother of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, Ugoeze Sally Okwu Kanu has passed on.
The leader of the IPOB, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu has made public the death of his mother, Ugoeze Sally Okwu Kanu, saying that his mother died on August 30th after protracted illness.
Ugoeze Sally Okwu Kanu, who dissappeared with her husband after the Nigerian military invaded their palace home and killed 22 Biafran members, has allegedly died in Germany.
The whereabouts of her husband, a traditiional ruler of his people is still unknown.
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.
Nnamdi Kanu 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.”
Femi Fani-Kayode, while reacting, described Ugoeze as a great lady of royal and noble blood, while commiserating with the IPOB leader.
He wrote on Twitter, “@MaziNnamdikanu, I just heard the terrible news about Mama. I am so sorry my brother. God will continue to be with you and all those of us that she left behind.
“A great lady of royal and noble blood from an illustrious line with an illustrious son. May her soul rest in peace.”
May her soul rest in peace.
She will be greatly missed by those who love her.
