He made this known on his recognised Twitter handle on Sunday.

“I thank IPOB in Nagoya for hosting me last night.

It would be recalled that Kanu had stormed Japan on Saturday “to maintain the diplomatic momentum of the most resolute activism to restore Biafra.”

Abia-born Kanu presented a paper at the European Union (EU) Parliament in Brussels, Belgium earlier this month – on invitation.

There, he slammed Nigeria as “the problem“, while also accusing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of unfairly branding IPOB a terrorist organization.

He reiterated that the quest to restore Biafra is ‘unstoppable’.
