Fani-Kayode: Nnamdi Kanu will work with us to vote out Buhari

FORMER Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode says the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has agreed to work with him to remove President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

Kanu who disappeared from the public scene in September 2017 after a raid on his country home in Abia state by the army appeared in a video on Friday where he was spotted worshipping in Jerusalem.

Fani-Kayode wrote on his Twitter handle on Saturday that he received a call from Kanu noting that they have agreed to work together to vote Buhari out.

“I just received a call from my brother Nnamdi Kanu. I am delighted that he is alive and well. I commend his strength and courage even as I marvel at the loyalty, resilience and commitment of his lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor and IPOB. We have agreed to work together to VOTE Buhari out,” Fani-Kayode wrote.

After the raid, Kanu’s house was raided in September, 2017, his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor said the IPOB leader was abducted by military operatives on September 14.

He said “Kanu has probably been killed”.

Ejiofor insisted he had not communicated with his client since September 14, since his home was “invaded” by soldiers while reacting to reports that Kanu had gone into hiding.

When contacted by The ICIR, Ejiofor who confirmed it was Nnamdi Kanu that was in the video said he heard from him Saturday morning.

“On the face of this cheerful news staring on my face, I immediately intensified effort to ascertain the veracity or otherwise of the video clip.
 “Only, this morning, I received a direct confirmation from my client, hearing once from him after 13 months in captivity.
I  am very delighted, therefore,  to use this singular opportunity to announce to the world that my client is the very person seen in the pictures /video. That I can confirm authoritatively,” Ejiofor said in a statement sent to The ICIR.
