'We Have Seen Nnamdi Kanu', Says IPOB
After news broke about the current location of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu on Friday, his group has affirmed the report.
In a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the body said its leader was seen in Jerusalem at the Wailing Wall, where he joined other faithful to offer prayers.
The group’s statement read in part, “Fellow Biafrans, friends of Biafra, enemies of Biafra, men and women of goodwill and of good conscience across the world, we wish to reliably inform you that the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, prayed today at the Wailing Wall in the Holy City of David in Jerusalem Live today, October 19, 2018.
“Biafrans, be resolute, this is the beginning of the struggle for Biafra’s independence. We thank God, Almighty God, for his protection and safety.”
Kanu had been missing since September 14, 2017, when some soldiers allegedly invaded his house in Afara Ukwu in Umuahia, Abia State, during a military exercise in the South-East titled, ‘Operation Python Dance ll’. The whereabouts of Kanu and his parents had remained unknown since then.
IPOB had accused the military of whisking its leader and his parents away, urging the Federal Government to produce them. Kanu is facing trial for treason in Nigeria. A video of the leader of the separatist Igbo group performing Jewish prayer rights trended online on Friday.
His younger brother, Emmanuel, said the family received the news through an online video shared by one Castro Nkume.
