The Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, was finally brought to court on Monday, at the Wuse Zone 2 Magistrate Court in Abuja despite the rumor of his death making rounds on several media outlets. Once sighted by the curious crowd made up of people of nearly all ages, there was a rousing shout of joy as the crowd hailed him chanting: “Nwa Chineke” (meaning child of God) as the director accompanied by the SSS walked into the court.
This was after the Court ordered last Wednesday that the Department of State Services (DSS) should produce compulsorily, the detained Kanu in court today given that the DSS was supposed to produce him in court last week, but didn’t do so. Though the Director was looking shabby, untidy, messy, slim and somewhat ill-groomed he is very much alive contrary to the hypothesis that suggested he may have been slaughtered in Abuja.
According to the statement released in Abakaliki by MASSOB’s factional director of information, Uchenna Madu before his arraignment today, the Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu who was taken into custody on October 18 by operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) on his arrival from the United Kingdom could not appear in court because he had been killed as the arraignment was obstructed on November 18. However that isn’t the case today as he was seen alive and fit today.

Most of the people outside the court were dresses in t-shirts with the logo of Biafra. They teemed around the Director like a hero trying to touch him, but the security was meaningfully tight enough not to allow them. The director dressed in a light blue shirt could only wave to the crowd to demonstrate how grateful he was for the immense support. Security was on the increase at the court following his arrival. The heavily armed security operatives queried anyone who wanted to gain entrance into the court for identification.
As Nnamdi Kanu appears in court, supporters of the activist storm Abuja in luxury buses to demonstrate and voice solidarity in a peaceful protest, for their embattled leader.
The redeeming grace for all the supporters of Biafra is that Kanu, the leader of Biafra nationalist organization, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and the director of London-based Radio Biafra, whose apprehension, and regional economic and political problems have caused huge peaceful protests still walks this earth.
