Prophet Anthony Nwoko of the Church of God, last weekend called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) now or Heaven will fall.

 The cleric stated this while addressing the press after a Prayer Summit organised by 24 Pastors in Enugu, with the theme, “Possessing the land”.

Prophet Nwoko also accused the Nigeria politicians from the southeast of being “selfish, self-centred,” and so indifferent to the Igbo cause.

He said: “I cannot find any clean political leader from the South East. The governors are selfish, self centered, and have never pursued any action that will uplift the overall well-being of Igbo nation.”

Prophet Nwoko stated that it is unlawful for President Buhari and Department of State Security (DSS) to continue to detain Nnamdi Kanu who has not committed any crime.

This is coming few days a Catholic Bishop of Abuja metropolis accused President Buhari of being an unrepentant dictator, who preaches “change” but has not changed one bit.

“Buhari must release Nnamdi Kanu with immediate effect, otherwise the heavens will strike,” the Prophet said.

He challenged religious leaders in the South East geopolitical zone to “step forward now and fulfill God’s mandate for the Igbo nation.

He however stated that the only way Nigeria will move forward is when the country turns to God. “The nation has gone against God’s will, they hide the truth about Jesus because of what they will eat, the spirit has advised Nigerians to crown the king of this nation for the world to bear witness of the second coming of the Holy One” he added.

In a similar manner, Senator Rowland Owie has also advised President Buhari to disregard the lies his “palace jesters” are telling him of IPOB being a militant group, and therefore urged him to order the release of Nnamdi Kanu as that could be the only way the tension in the country can be reduced.

This is coming four days after Nnamdi Kanu declined standing trial on six count charges of treasonable felony fashioned against him by the federal government which led to the Judge refusing to continue presiding over the case.
