Opinion: Prince Sydney And The Unforgettable Horror Of Operation Python II


On Thursday, September 14, 2017, a combined team of the Police, DSS and Army reportedly raided Nnamdi Kanu’s Abia home.

Soon after the commencement of the exercise in 2017, soldiers publicly clashed with IPOB members with the group. Dozens of its members were killed in a crackdown that lasted over a week and ended in the disappearance of Kanu before he later resurfaced in 2018. Many of the group members also went missing, some were kidnapped, Killed and others jailed.

The mysterious whereabouts of Prince Sydney, the former Public Relations Officer (PRO), of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Abuja chapter, up till date, is yet a painful puzzle. The ordeal of the state-sponsored genocidal expedition, code named "Operation Python Dance II", orchestrated by the Nigerian army against the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), remains unforgettable. This organization is a globally recognised phenomenal indigenous mass movement known for peacefully exercising their rights to self determination as clearly enshrined in United Nations' charter of 1945. 

Mrs. Rita Uzoamaka, the wife of Prince Sydney, while recalling her experience pertaining her yet to be seen husband since 2017, told our correspondent in her Abuja residence at number 467, Queens Estate, Gwarimpa, Abuja, that things have never been the same since the disappearance of her husband. She explained that her husband, prior to that murderous invasion of the residence of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at  Afara-Ukwu Ibeku in Umuahia, Abia State, by the Nigerian army on the 14th of September 2017, actually called her on phone. Her interaction with him was really brief and panicky as she heard him mention that the soldiers have broken into the compound of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, killing, maiming and destroying, that very afternoon. She tried severally calling her husband back, but all to no avail. His phone only rang on those occasions without anyone giving even a response.

Breaking down in uncontrollable/emotional tears, Mrs. Uzoamaka Sydney went down on her knees, pleading that the Nigerian government and good spirited individuals should intervene and help release her husband from anywhere he is being held. In her screaming, she exclaimed: "Chai, my husband never offended anyone. All they are agitating for is their right and it is lawful. I believe he is still alive and is being held somewhere. I plead with his captors (Nigerian government), and of course, the civilised global community to intervene and get him rescued".

Prince Sydney, according to our investigation, was in the home of the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on that fateful day of 14th September 2017, before that military invasion. Recall that the IPOB leader was illegally arrested in Lagos on the 14th of October 2015, upon his arrival in Nigeria from London. He was taken down to Abuja, Nigeria's federal capital city, from where he was extra-judicially incarcerated for years, before being taken to court where he was tried on trumped up charges bordering on treasonable felony, amongst others. He was subsequently granted bail on the 28th of April 2017.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was on his ancestral home at Afara-Ukwu, serving his bail until 14th September 2017, when the murderous Islamic infested Nigerian army callously invaded his residence in desperate moves to get him summarily executed. In the process however, not less than twenty eight innocent, armless Biafran citizens were gruesomely killed, while unaccountable number still remain missing till date.
