The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday met with members of his family nearly two months after he was arrested.
The IPOB leader, according to the younger brother, Emma Kanu, was in high spirit as he discussed cheerfully with his immediate family members.
The younger Kanu, who fielded questions from our correspondent in Umuahia on phone, said, “I met with my elder brother, Nnamdi, today, Monday, at the Department of State Services (DSS) headquarters, Abuja, where he is being detained currently.
“He is in high spirit and more determined now than ever in getting Biafra”.
Emma Kanu disclosed further that the IPOB leader had been praying fervently for all Biafrans all over the world and used the opportunity to send his greetings and warm felicitations to them, adding, “He was grateful for their firm support to him”.
According to Emma Kanu, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu urged all Biafrans to keep the Biafra spirit alive, and expressed optimism that the Biafra Republic will soon be restored irrespective of the antics of the enemies.
“I want to confirm to you that he’s in high spirit and appreciates all the support from all Biafrans home and abroad”, Emma added, even as he asked the Federal Government to grant his brother access to his personal physicians.
The younger Kanu further called on the international community to prevail on Nigeria to free his brother so that he could re-unite with his family.
