Leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu will return to Nigeria in continuation of his agitation for sovereignty, according to Emma Powerful, IPOB spokesman.

This online news medium understands that Powerful told The Cable on Monday that Kanu will visit Nigeria as part of his current tour of some countries where he is pushing for the group’s secessionist cause.

However, Powerful was silent on when the visit will happen.

“I will not disclose it (when) now until he makes it official for us to tell people,” The Cable quotes the IPOB promoter as saying over the phone.

“At the appropriate time, we (will) communicate (to) you people. Government of Nigeria can do whatever they like. Biafra will come and nobody can stop Biafra.”

Recall Concise News reported yesterday that Kanu will be touring Australia and New Zealand in the Oceania region where he will be meeting Biafrans residing there.

He has been holding Town-Hall meetings, especially in North America to reach Biafrans.

Kanu was declared missing in September 2017 after the Nigerian Army invaded his home in Abia state and there was not any trace of him until October 2018 when he was allegedly sighted in Israel.

Since then, he has been active on social media, criticising the Nigerian government and updating the public via live broadcasts and meetings about his quest for the realization of the Biafra Republic.
