What is it with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu that makes the high and mighty suddenly want to identify with him?

First it was the controversial Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, who wore a cap meant for an Igbo chief to court on Monday, looking funny as he tried hard to convince the media that he believed in the Biafra cause and the “free Kanu” campaign.

Many condemned Fayose, wondering why a seating governor would be declaring support for a man standing trial for treason and is agitating against the continued unity of Nigeria.

But just when other Nigerians were saying that this was just one of Fayose’s funny moves, which sometimes can be embarrassing, another top shot shows up beside the Biafra man.

This time, it is Nigeria's deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, who has joined a Port Harcourt Jewish Rabbi to perfect the bail condition of Nnamdi Kanu.

When the court granted bail to Kanu with strict conditions, many Nigerians had wondered how he would meet those conditions but now we know Nnamdi is not a small man.

The court had ordered that three sureties, including a serving senator and a Jewish religious leader, would provide N100 million and a landed property in Abuja.

It was also interesting to see another Igbo Senator, Enyainnaya Abaraibe, working alongside Ekweremadu through the entire process of perfecting Kanu's bail.

Seeing a serving state governor, a senator and the number 5 citizen of Nigeria standing behind Nnamdi Kanu tells us there is more to this man than we know.

There are reports that the IPOB leader will be released from Kuje Prison on Friday, April 28.

Why wouldn't he?
