The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has revealed how he escaped during the military clamp down on the group.

Kanu who spoke in an interview with Israeli TV Channel 1 said he was smuggled outof the country with the help of relatives.

IPOB was the target of a Nigerian Army operation code-named Operation Python Dance, launched in the South East.

While the group was banned, Kanu went out of public glare until two weeks ago, when a video of him in Israel resurfaced on social media.

In the interview, Kanu alleged that 28 persons were killed during the army operation, which was largely felt around his fathers residence in Umuahia, Abia State.

He said: When I came out (of prison), I continued to preach to my people and continued to practise my Jewish religion.

And, one day, the Nigerian army came to my house to kill me. They killed 28 people in their attempt to kill me.

My people evacuated me before they came to my bedroom. They took me away and smuggled me out of Nigeria.

I needed some time to recover, which I did and, then, had to make my way to Israel.

The IPOB leader added that he feels relievedthat he managed to make itto Israel, the only place I feel safe in the world.
