Earlier this morning, the Biafra movement posted on one of its Facebook pages that the Indigenous People of Biafra and the director of Radio Biafra Nnamdi Kanu, happily welcomed the birth of a baby boy.
The Message reads:
“Good morning great Biafrans with joy in our hearts and celebration of new arrival to IPOB family, our first lady the wife of our eminent leader Joshua Nnamdi Kanu has delivered a healthy baby boy, mother and child are in good health.”
According to one of his family members, Prince Kanu, Mrs. Uchechi Okwu Kanu delivered her baby at the wee hour of today Tuesday January 5th.
Nnamdi kanu who is spearheading the quest for an independent nation of Biafra, is yet to see his son as he remains in the DSS custody.
Mr. Kanu was earlier granted bail by a Federal high Court sitting in Abuja, but he was also re-arrested by the SSS, who slammed a fresh charge of treasonable felony against him.
President Mohammadu Buhari had on new year’s eve, explained why he cannot release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
According to the president, Kanu has two passports, one Nigerian, one British and came to the country without using any passport.
Speaking further on Biafra and the marginalization of Ndigbo, Buhari said,
“They say they are marginalized but they have not defined the extent of marginalization. Who is marginalizing them? Where? Do you know? Choosing a minister is not a matter of ethnicity, it is a matter of the constitution. I am limited by what the constitution says that there must be a member of the executive council from each state. There is a lot of partisan politics in it. Who is the Minister of State for Petroleum? Is he not an Igbo? Who is the governor of the CBN? Is he not an Igbo? Who is the Minister of Labour? Who is the Minister of Science and Technology? What do they want? I stood elections and I won, I am limited by the constitution, I have a member of every state in the Federal Executive Council and I have to listen to them when I sit as chairman. That is the limit the constitution gave me”.
Meanwhile, Okwu-Kanu defended her husband’s struggle for Biafra’s independence and argued pro-Biafrans have the right to self-determination.
