The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has sent solidarity message to the embattled former governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose.
Concise News reports that the Pro-Biafra activist, who was last seen in September 2017 when military men invaded his residence in Afaraukwu in Abia State, Southeast Nigeria, was seen praying in Jerusalem on Friday.
The IPOB leader, who is on trial over treasonable felony, was granted bail by a Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Binta Nyako in April 2017 after spending 18 months in detention.
This online news platform recalls that Mr Fayose attended the court hearing of the IPOB leader as the governor of Ekiti state, the day Kanu was granted bail by Justice Nyako.
Speaking on the current travail of the former governor during a broadcast via Radio Biafra on Sunday, Kanu assured Fayose that “Biafra will stand by him in this hour of need”, referring to the case involving the former governor and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“I want to send my solidarity to Ayo Fayose and assure him that Biafra will stand by him in this hour of need. We will have a special place for him in Biafra,” the IPOB leader said.
