Nnamdi Kanu’s sudden ‘return’ stirs fresh worries in South East

KANU SPEAKS ‘IPOB will not participate in any election and that position will never change

Also, IPOB had through a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, confirmed on Friday that the person seen in the video was its leader at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, where he joined other faithful to offer prayers. IPOB will not participate in any election and that position will never change.

Ejiofor, who had previously accused the Nigerian Army of abducting Kanu during the September 2017 invasion of his residence in Umuahia, said the video showing him praying in Israel 13 months after he disappeared was authentic.

"This is the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, the prophet of our time, Nnamdi Kanu, in the Holy City of David", a voice off camera is heard to say.

Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra has called him.

"IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other reputable and hardcore Biafrans will leave no stone unturned to restore Biafra sovereignty as long as Fulani and other Nigerians hold Biafrans down".

"IPOB is the largest mass movement in the whole world, we will not stop until Biafra is fully restored. With this, we are advising all Biafrans to be resolute and committed towards this fight to free our people from the bondage and slavery in Nigeria", the statement added.

In a broadcast via Radio Biafra on Sunday, Kanu maintained his defiant stance against the Nigerian state and promised "hell" upon his return.

Reacting to the development, however, apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, expressed delight that Kanu was alive and enjoying his freedom, and warned members of the group to remain calm and peaceful.

"I implore IPOB members to emulate him and follow his footsteps".

He said: "They wanted to intimidate us". I don't want them to take to violent acts.

The government later outlawed his group, IPOB, which has called for an independent Biafran state.

"I have, since yesterday, been asking why IPOB would now order people to stay away from business in honour of a man that they said was missing when they know that he is still alive. We have agreed to work together to VOTE Buhari out", he tweeted.

"Well, the resurfacing of Kanu, Biafra is very close".
