- 2019 Elections: Runaway Bifara leader Nnamdi Kanu reveals who he will be supporting
Ahead of the 2019 general elections a former minister of aviation Femi-Fani Kayode has revealed runaway Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu has agreed to work together with Nigerians to vote Buhari out.
He disclosed this on Saturday after he said he received a call from Kanu. Nnamdi Kanu resurfaced in a video on Friday, 13 months after he ‘disappeared’ following a raid on his residence by the Nigerian.
Fani-Kayode revealed his conversation with Kanu via a tweet that read: “I just received a call from my brother Nnamdi Kanu. I am delighted that he is alive and well. I commend his strength and courage even as I marvel at the loyalty, resilience, and commitment of his lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor and IPOB. We have agreed to work together to VOTE Buhari out.”
Meanwhile, Following the Viral video showing him in Jerusalem Israel, the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanuwill give a press conference on Sunday if the head of the legal team Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor of the Biafran leader is to be believed.
Ejiofor, in a statement on Saturday, confirmed that Kanu would address the public in a world press conference to be beamed live on Sunday to narrate “the shocking tale of how he made it alive”.
This came ahead of the November 14 scheduled for hearing in Kanu’s trial before the Federal High Court in Abuja. Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe and others who stood bail sureties for the IPOB leader in April last year, are expected to return to the court presided by Justice Binta Nyako to show cause why they should not be made to lose their N100m bail bonds which they entered into to secure Kanu’s bail, if they are unable to produce the IPOB leader.
Also, a former Governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, whom Ejiofor had caused to be summoned by the court for insisting that Kanu had escaped to London, is also expected in court at the next hearing date.
Kanu was being prosecuted by the Federal Government before the Federal High Court in Abuja before he went missing on September 14, 2017, following a military invasion of his home in Afara-Ukwu in Umuahia, Abia State.
