Controversial investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, has predicted the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
In a post on her Twitter handle on Thursday, Olunloyo stated that the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government may drop all charges against the pro-Biafra activist.
She recalled that she had told Nigerians last month that the IPOB leader would be released soon.
Kemi Olunloyo wrote: “This time next week I’m predicting that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be released from DSS Custody and all his federal charges dropped.
“He may be given exile stipulations but then he’s a Nigerian National. I told you FIRST last month that he will be released soon.”
Naija News reports that Nnamdi Kanu is facing an amended 7-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and acts of terrorism which were brought against him by the Federal Government after his re-arrest and repatriation to Nigeria in June this year.
The IPOB leader has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) from where he attends his court sessions in Abuja amidst heavy security.
Justice Binta Nyako had adjourned Kanu’s case till January 19 and 20, 2022, for trial.
However, the IPOB leader is set to appear in an emergency court session scheduled for today, in what some sources say is a move to grant the Biafra activist bail.
