Supporters of the secessionist group, The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Wednesday 30 June,2021 maintained that no hope was lost in their struggle for freedom.

Recall that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly rearrested after he jumped bail on eleven count charge bordering on felony after The Nigerian Military Invaded his house with their armaments and tanks killing scores in the ensued melee as he fled for his life.

Reacting one of the supporters, Mr Eshieye Isaac said the rearrest was part of their leader’s prophecy that once he concluded his plan abroad would submit and returned back to the country to complete his divine assignment.

He explained that foreign advisers of the secessionist group had encouraged their leader to present himself and cleared his name with the court.

He hinted that there’s no doubt that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu submitted himself for trial and never rearrested as speculated in some quarter of the media.

Speaking Mr Boniface Nwankwo, told our reporter that though he was said to be rearrested,that the group leader rather submitted himself for trial.

In another reaction, another supporter who gave his name as Godwin advised Nigeria government to trade with caution as International community watches them on how they handle the allegations.

He added that Mazi kanu remained innocent until proven beyond reasonable doubt in his demand for justice.

When asked what becomes the fate of supporters if the activist is jailed, he maintained that whatever decision taken by federal high court would end in favour of Kanu.

He maintained optimistic that the activist would come out better than expected, saying that despite federal government influence that they would not like to make similar mistake of forcefully following the case.

He further advised federal government to take advantage of the return of the IPOB Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to renegotiate for a better Nigeria,where equity, justice and merit would rule against the backward programme and policies as seen in the country.
