WHAT KANU'S WIFE UCHECHI SAID ABOUT HIS HUSBANDS WHERE ABOUT AND MORE


Wife of the missing leader of popular separatist group IPOB, Mrs Uchechi Okwu-Kanu, wrote to Newsweek earlier in October to say she was sure that her husband had been killed and that the Nigerian government was covering up his death. The separatist leader’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said on Tuesday that he did not know whether his client was dead or alive and had not seen him since the alleged raid on Kanu’s home in Umuahia, southeast Nigeria, .

The Nigerian military denied that the raid—which Kanu’s supporters say happened on September 14 and in some 20 IPOB members being shot dead—ever took place and have said that Kanu is not in their custody. The trial has been adjourned until November 20, with the court ordering Kanu’s team to produce him on that date. But the IPOB leader’s continued absence is threatening to escalate tensions in southeast Nigeria, where Kanu’s biggest support base resides.
