The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has arrived his hometown in Isiama Afara, Umuahia in Abia state.
The IPOB leader arrived Umuahia on Friday, May 5, exactly one week after his release from Kuje Prison in Abuja.
While speaking with Voice of Ndigbo, Kanu’s father, Eze Israel Kanu said he is full of joy for his son’s safe return.
Speaking in his native dialect – Igbo – Eze Kanu said: “My heart is full of joy over his return. I am extremely grateful to God who has done this because it could only have been him.”
Voice of Ndigbo also gathered that, Kanu’s home town is full of merry and gunshots salutes by residents of the community who welcomed the IPOB leader.
It was also gathered that many people in their numbers thronged the palace of Kanu’s father to welcome the IPOB leader.
Recall that the IPOB was at the Enugu Cenotaph on Thursday, May 4, where he went for some private prayers, Voice of Ndigbo gathered.
Voice of Ndigbo also gathered that Kanu usually made a visit at the Cenotaph every time he visited the East to pray for some of the heroes lost during the Nigerian-Biafra civil war.
