The controversy surrounding the whereabouts of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has finally been laid to rest as he was reportedly sighted yesterday praying in a Jewish synagogue in Israel. This much has been confirmed by both his family and the leadership of IPOB.

His reappearance has however elicited concern by the apex Igbo group, Ohanaeze, which called on the pro-Biafra agitators to shun any confrontation with the military, which is organizing another operation python dance in the Southeast.

Soldiers on September 21, 2017, invaded the palace of the traditional ruler of Afara Ukwu, HRM (Eze) Isaac Kanu which also doubles as the IPOB leader’s home. Since after the invasion, Kanu and his parents had not been seen or their whereabouts known until yesterday when the IPOB leader was sighted praying in Israel.

Months before the invasion of his home, the leader of (IPOB) had told this newspaper in an exclusive interview that he feared for his life as the Nigerian Army was planning to kill him over his resolve not to abandon the agitation for the actualization of a state of Biafra.

Speaking on the latest development, the spokesman of the Kanu family, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, confirmed that his elder brother and leader of IPOB, Nnamdi actually prayed in Israel yesterday.

“Yes, I can confirm to you that my elder brother and leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu prayed at a Jewish synagogue in Israel today, Friday and it is the first since he got missing over a year ago when the military invaded our home.”

Meanwhile, the people of Afaraukwu community who are in joyous mood over the reported sighting of their son in Israel, have urged Abia state government to expedite action on the return of Kanu’s father.

According to Nwabueze, “The governor made the promise that our monarch will be back, the question then is, when will he be back?

“If there is anywhere they put him, he should let us know and thank God that he has accepted he will come back, that is to say that he knows where he is. So, since the governor has accepted that he knows where he is and that he will soon come back, then he should bring them back. With what the governor said, it is now very clear that our traditional ruler is in their custody and they should expedite action to bring him back.”
