An Enugu-based prophet, Anthony Nwoko, has advised the self-acclaimed leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to remain in Israel.
Nwoko, an indigene of Olokoro in Abia State, southern Nigeria, said this at a media briefing in Enugu, termed ‘Prophetic declaration’, where he declared that he was the ordained messiah.
The clergyman said the IPOB leader lacked the capacity to liberate the Igbo having disobeyed God.
Nwoko, who disclosed that he last visited his country home 47 years ago, also berated the leader of Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) Ralph Uwazuruike, saying the latter is a “playboy” like Kanu.
Speaking on Kanu’s resurgence, Nwoko said the pro-Biafra activist came out of his hiding place to “scatter things.”
His words: “This is not about Nnamdi Kanu who ran away,” he said, adding “Nnamdi Kanu should remain in Israel, what he came out now to do is to scatter things.
“I told Nnamdi Kanu that Biafra will not come by carrying flags around; he has nothing to offer. He has no protection, he disobeyed God.
“He is looking for salvation in Israel but it is here. You cannot be a leader and run away. Nnamdi Kanu and Uwazurike are just looking for money, they are playboys.”
In October, the IPOB leader said he was “smuggled out” of Nigeria with the help of relatives last year.
Kanu, who made this revelation known in an interview with Israeli TV Channel 1, said he escaped during the military clampdown on the group.
Concise News reports that while the separatist group was banned, the pro-Biafra activist went out of public glare until last month when a video of him in Israel resurfaced on social media.
