Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is currently in Jerusalem and is scheduled to address a world press conference, SaharaReporters has learnt.
He was last seen on September 14, 2017, when a raid was carried out on his home by the Nigerian Army.
However, on Friday, a video of Kanu praying in Jerusalem surfaced online, 13 months after the IPOB leader was last seen and heard of.
Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told online newspaper SaharaReporters on Saturday that his client was the one in the video.
He said: “Only, this morning, I received a direct confirmation from my client, hearing once from him after 13 months in captivity.
“Furthermore, the shocking tale of how he made it out alive will be made public in his scheduled world press broadcast to be beamed live within the next 24 hours.
“The world will now hear, from the horse’s mouth, the gory accounts of what happened in my client’s home on the 14th day of September 2017,” he said.
Ejiofor maintained that it was not yet over between his client and the military, stating that they still owe the court an explanation on why they moved their Armoured Personnel Carriers into Kanu’s home on September 14, 2017, an action which he said resulted in the death of more than 50 IPOB members.
