Senior Pastor of the Redemption Life Fellowship, Aba, Abia State, Bishop Jude Chineme, has opened up on a revelation he received from God 26 years ago concerning Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Bishop Chineme said God told him that Nnamdi Kanu was born to achieve the sovereign state of Biafra.
The cleric said that God showed him this about 26 years ago before Ralph Nwazuruike formed the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, that it was an Igbo man from Umuahia, the Abia State capital that would lead the old Eastern region out of Nigeria.
According to his words; “People like us don’t talk anyhow. We talk when it is necessary. The Biafra agitation is something the Lord revealed to me many years ago, 26 if not 27 years ago. That was on 4th September 1994,” he said.
“The day I was in Terryvin hotel by Okigbe Road, Aba. In my wedding ceremony, the chairman of the wedding was Dr Edmund Ezirim, the owner of Blessing Clinic, 97 or 95 Port Harcourt Road, Aba.
“It was there that the Lord revealed to me the crowd heading to Umuahia. When I asked what kind of crowd is this? Then the Lord told me that was Biafra restoration. I saw the Biafra flag. And God vividly opened and told me that the man that would bring Biafra would come from Umuahia. That was 4th September 1994. The Lord told me Biafra would not come through Nwazuruike.
“So, later Nnamdi Kanu now came up with Biafra agitation and the Lord told me vividly that Biafra would come through him. According to him, the activities of Nnamdi Kanu and his group was exactly what God revealed to him on 4th September 1994, “That day was on Sunday. And it rained heavily that day,” he said.
Bishop Chineme said for this reason he never missed to join in any prayer for the actualization of Biafra because he knows that God had already revealed to him and the words of the Lord must surely come to pass whether people pray or not.
“This is what Nnamdi Kanu was born for. God sent him into this planet earth for that purpose. So, whether by prayer or not by prayer, it must surely come to pass,” he added.
Nnamdi Kanu is currently cooling off in detention at the Department of State Services, DSS, headquarters in Abuja after he was arrested in Kenya, East Africa and bundled to Nigeria. The IPOB leader, who escaped from Nigeria in 2017 and settled in the United Kingdom after security agencies invaded his Afaraukwu home in Umuahia, was re-arrest by Kenya authorities.
Although the Nigerian government has up till now not revealed how and where the IPOB leader was intercepted and brought back to Nigeria, reports suggest that he was arrested with the help of Kenyan authorities, who detained him before handing him over to Nigerian authorities.
He has also been arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja, which ordered that the IPOB leader be remanded at the DSS custody till when he will reappear in court again.
Meanwhile, the IPOB leader had narrated to his lawyer how he was beaten mercilessly, tortured and left unconscious by Keyan authorities before being handed over to the Nigerian government. However, his trial has been ongoing for the past 9 months and since then he has been in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS).
