Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has urged his followers to pray fervently ahead of his next court appearance.
Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Federal High Court is expected to rule on Kanu’s application challenging the competence of the treason charges filed against him on April 8, 2022.
Kanu is charged with offences bordering on treasonable felony, terrorism brought against him by the Federal Government.
However, the IPOB leader expressed confidence that he would emerge triumphant and regain his freedom.
The IPOB leader revealed this during his routine meeting with his legal team at the headquarters of the Department of State Services, DSS, in Abuja.
Kanu confirmed that he would soon be free from the hellhole he currently in.
In a statement, Kanu’s Counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor disclosed that the legal team’s discussion with the IPOB leader was mainly aimed at the fine-tuning strategy towards handling the outcome of the “anticipated ruling, come Friday, on our application challenging the competence of the charge.”
He said: “Onyendu is eminently ready for Friday’s ruling. He is firm in his disposition and strong in his conviction.
“Be assured that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Onyendu’s freedom will happen soon. It is forward ever and backward never!
“Onyendu requested millions of his followers, supporters and Ezigbo Umuchineke to remain strong in prayers, particularly as this special day approaches.”
Kanu has been in the DSS custody on the orders of Justice Nyako since he was brought from Kenya.
The IPOB leader was arrested in Kenya and repatriated in June, 2022.
Meanwhile, IPOB had dismissed claims that President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered for Kanu’s release.
