Earlier today, we reported that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is back to public space and was spotted praying in Jerusalem as captured in a live video.
Here are more photos of Nnamdi Kanu and his followers in Jerusalem below;
Nnamdi Kanu was last seen in Nigeria on September 10, 2017 after some military men invaded his residence in Afaraukwu community in Abia State.
Confirming the video and pictures, a source closed to IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful said “The video is true, Emma Powerful confirmed it to me.” Radio Biafra had earlier confirmed in a tweet signed by Uche Mefor, the deputy leader of IPOB, that Kanu would be broadcast live on Facebook praying in Jersualem.
“The Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of #Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu would within an hour from now praying in Jerusalem Live on facebook. All are enjoined to hook on. Chukwu Okike is in charge!,” the tweet said.
The Nigerian government was accused of keeping the separatist group leader in captivity by Kanu’s family members but the government has since dismissed the claims that he was being held in secret by the military. They claimed Kanu was “hiding” somewhere.
Kanu’s wife, Uchehi, in February 2018, said the Nigerian government had to provide her husband or at “least tell us where he is” before the elections. Nnamdi Kanu was first arrested in October 2015 for demanding the separation of Nigeria from Biafra and was later granted bail in April 2017.
