Ikonso Don was a die-hard Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu supporter. In fact, he still shared Simon Ekpa’s post on the evening that preceeded his death.
According to Nigerian security agencies, Ikonso is the Vice President designate as well as the coordinator of all the militia operations of the outlawed IPOB and its Eastern Security Network (ESN)
As per an information on his genuine Facebook page, Ikonso was born December 25, 1985, meaning he died aged 35.
Ikonso Real Name
His real name is Nwaokike Kayinayo Andy.
A tactical team of the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Army, and Department of State Services (DSS), in a joint operation last Saturday eliminated Ikonso Commander, who was said to be the commander of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) military.
The raid in Awomama Village, Oru East LGA of Imo State also saw an army officer, three policemen and some other IPOB members losing their lives.
Ikonson (also spelled Ikonso) was accused for being the mastermind of multiple attacks on police stations in the South east and South- South regions.
His killing apparently hit diaspora-based IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu hard.
