Nnamdi Kanu, Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has confirmed the authenticity of a video showing him praying in Jerusalem, thus dispelling the rumour that he is dead.

The leader of the group, which has since been proscribed by the Federal Government, has, until Friday, October 19, when the video went viral on the social media, not been seen in public for  more than a year now, after his confrontation with men of the Nigerian military.

With his case still pending at the Federal High Court, Abuja, before Justice Binta Murtala Nyako, Kanu, who was granted bail in 2016, under strict conditions, including being barred from holding public gathering or speaking to the media, is set to address the world on Sunday.

He is expected to narrate his experience in the hands of military men, who invaded his home in Afaraukwu community in Umuahia, Abia State, according to his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who claimed to have spoken with him.

Ejiofor, in a statement on Saturday, confirmed that Kanu would address the public in a world press conference to be beamed live on Sunday to narrate “the shocking tale of how he made it alive.”

Incidentally, Kanu’s case is to resume in court on November 14, where his sureties, during his bail are to return to the court to show cause why they should not be made to lose their N100m bail bonds which they entered into to secure Kanu’s bail, if they were unable to produce the IPOB leader.

Kanu was being prosecuted by the Federal Government before the Federal High Court in Abuja before he went missing on September 14, 2017 following a military invasion of his home in Afara-Ukwu in Umuahia, Abia State.

The military invasion took place during the last year’s ‘Operation Python Dance II’ staged by the military to quell the agitation for the cessation of Republic of Biafra from Nigeria.

IPOB, had through a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, confirmed on Friday that the person seen in the video was its leader at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, where he joined other faithful to offer prayers.
