Recall that the Nigerian troops had on September 14, 2017, stormed the house of the leader of the group, Nnamdi Kanu, in Afara Ukwu, Umuahia in Abia State.

The invasion which led to the death of many of the groups sympathizers, also saw the disappearance of Mr Kanu.

The group also claimed that at least 22 of her members were killed and over 18 others arrested in the process.

However, in her reaction, the Nigerian Army swiftly denied the allegation and knowledge of the whereabout of Kanu.
