Prince Emmanuel Kanu the younger brother of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has said that contrary to fears in some circles, Biafra Republic would be “restored without any war”.
Prince Kanu made the assertion Wednesday when he received in audience a team of investigators from Alliances for Africa who was in their family home on fact -finding mission.
He said that his elder brother was currently engaging in high profile diplomatic talks with notable world leaders and governments on how to peacefully restore Biafra.
According to him, important world leaders are now lending their full support to the struggles.
“The current diplomatic efforts by my brother on Biafra restoration are yielding positive efforts “, he said.
He thanked the team for coming to see the level of destruction in his father’s compound in the aftermath of the September 14 2017 military invasion.
He tasked the team on factual report , expressing hope that the visit will help secure more international sympathy over the Biafra cause.
Prince Emmanuel who conducted the team round the entire palace charged the members to publish their findings without fear or favour.
” I feel very relived by your visit today. I want the truth to be told so that the world will better understand the level of destruction in our house by the Nigerian military.
” Refuse to be bought over by the government and don’t compromise your findings “.
Asked if he expected a different result from the group’s visit considering the fact that many such groups had paid similar visit to the palace, Kanu said he expected a positive outcome.
“We keep hoping that one day the right group will come who will report the destruction here the way it is, and take the Biafra cause to the global platform where humanity will listen to our plights. “
Speaking earlier, leader of the team, MS Chidire Anonye, a legal aide with Alliances for Africa, said they were in the compound to collect raw data on the military invasion for analysis.

“We are investigating killings of IPOB members in Anambra, invasion of communities by herdsmen in Enugu, military barricades in Imo and communal clashes in Ebonyi “, she added.
She said that after objective analysis of their findings by their team of experts, the group could consider legal option to seek redress.
“We have the capacity to take government to a regional court – ECOWAS court to demand justice if found liable”, she said.
When prodded further on other measures being considered by the rights group to punish perpetrators of the “mass atrocities “, she declined comments, saying until they were through with investigations.
