There are indications that the missing leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is alive and has been reportedly sighted in Israel.
This cheering news was dropped by his younger brother, Emmanuel, who told newsmen last Friday that the family received the news through an online video shared by one Castro Nkume.
Emmanuel Kanu, who spoke through a phone interview from Umuahia, said the Deputy Director of IPOB, Uche Ejiofor, has confirmed and authenticated the video clip that the man seen in the video was the IPOB leader, Kanu.
The whereabouts of Kanu and his parents had remained unknown since their family house was allegedly invaded by soldiers on September 14, 2017, during the operation Python Dance II in the South East zone that claimed many lives and property.
The entire residents of their Isiama Afaraukwu community, as well as IPOB members entered into wild jubilation when they received the news that Kanu is still alive.
Emma, however, said the family had yet to receive information concerning the whereabouts of Kanu’s parents, stating, “I can confirm to you that the person in the video is Kanu. He was praying in the video that we saw. We are happy that he is still alive and we will try to establish communication with him”.
