The General Overseer of the Mountain of Liberation and miracle ministry, Dr. Chris Okafor, on Sunday called on the Federal Government to “immediately” release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
In a message at his church headquarters, the man of God also prophesied that the trial of former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki(retd) will soon start, “receiving positive attention” in light of court orders.
It would be recalled that Pastor Okafor had recently demanded the immediate release of Kanu, wondering why the government of Buhari had failed to honour court orders demanding the release of Kanu.
Shortly after his call, Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, last week struck out six of the 11 count charges leveled against Kanu. Justice Binta Nyako had struck out the counts for lack of proof of evidence.
The charges dismissed included charges three, five, seven, nine and 11 respectively
Noting that the events coming after his call were no coincidence, Okafor said:
“There are no coincidences with God. It was a carefully calculated divine declaration that has set the wheel in motion for Kanu’s release.
“I can’t take credit for it. God only chose to birth it through me. Everyone in church on that Sunday witnessed how God directed me away from the message that I was already preaching, to make the declaration that I made about Nnamdi Kanu’s immediate release. That is the way of a true prophet. It’s like the wind. You don’t know where it’s coming from.
“You can’t tell where it’s going. I’m sure some people thought I was trying to play some politics. Thank God for always confirming his words. You’ll see that even Dasuki’s own case will soon begin to receive positive attention in line with court orders. God wants Nigeria to be a better place for all and we are the watchmen who will oversee the transformation of this country for the better”.
“I am calling on the Federal Government to do whatever they can to release him immediately. I hope they treat this call as extremely urgent. And I have my reasons.”
Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal high court had struck out the counts for lack of proof of evidence. The charges dismissed included charges three, five, seven, nine and 11 respectively.
Some other Igbo leaders have also demanded the immediate release of the IPOB leader.
The Rivers State Judiciary complex in Port Harcourt was on Friday was thrown into jubilation mood as 35 pro-Biafra agitators were discharged.
The agitators who were arrested by the Police on January 20, during a rally in solidarity for the inauguration of the U.S. President, Donald Trump, were charged by the Police on two counts bordering on conspiracy to commit treason and treasonable felony.
The Chief Magistrate, Andrew Jaja, freed the suspects for what he described as lack of diligent prosecution by the Police
