In a rare show, of his other side, Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), on Wednesday, put aside his combative self to render a public apology for threatening the children of the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Ene Okon and other Nigerian officials.

The IPOB recanted on every word in which he said, that his group would hunt down the children of Okon, and other police officers as well as the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, should they bring any harm to members of the pro-Biafra group during his parents’ burial which is billed to take place on February 14th.

A remorseful Kanu, using his Twitter handle, admitted that he went too far, by bringing children into the mix, saying he spoke out of anger and emotions for the havoc being wrought on his people and to draw global attention and spread awareness to the threats and imminent danger they were experiencing under the weight of the Nigerian government.

He wrote: “This Friday, mourners in Biafra will come together to attend the funeral for my beloved parents, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Nmenme Kanu.

“During this time of mourning, the Indigenous People of #Biafra are living in a constant state of fear.

“The Abia State Commissioner of Police is threatening to disrupt the funeral and there continues to be a large military presence in the area, which has a history of inflicting violence against the #IPOB

“This has caused a range of emotions for me. I have now gone from an extreme sense of sadness after losing both of my parents, to an extreme sense of anger knowing that the mourners are in grave danger.

“In this time of immense grieving and anger, I made threats against the children of the Police Commissioner and other Nigerian officials on my radio program, Radio Biafra.

“This was wrong and I sincerely apologize. Children should always be off limits.

“It was my intention to bring global awareness to the threats and imminent danger the Government has placed on my family and community in hopes that shining a global spotlight on the actions of the Government will prevent them from inciting violence against my people.

“In doing so, I went too far.

“It is my great hope that the Indigenous People of Biafra can mourn in peace on Friday and can live in peace every single day forward.”
