The leader of the Indigenous People’s of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has made his first phone call to Nigeria, opposition figure and former Minister Femi Fani-kayode said in a brief statement to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington DC.
Kanu is alive
“I just received a call from my brother Nnamdi Kanu. I am delighted that he is alive and well,” Kayode said.

“I commend his strength and courage even as I marvel at the loyalty, resilience and commitment of his lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor and IPOB. We have agreed to work together to VOTE Buhari out,” he added.
Kanu’s phone calls comes a day after Nigeria was bombarded with pictures and reports that he had been sighted in Jerusalem, Israel, praying.
Nnamdi Kanu disappeared in September last year when security forces stormed his family home in Abia state.
He is trying to create an independent country for Igbo, decades after the first attempt failed.
