News broke yesterday (including on Opera News), with a cleric, Pastor Olatobiloba Peters, the Senior Pastor of Divine Mercy Church, prophesying the demise of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
WhIle we were still digesting the information, another cleric, Obinna Akukwe, raised alarm of a plot to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari, as well as Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. (Also on Opera News)
Recall also, that another cleric, Apostle Saviour Kal El, even though he did not predict Kanu’s death, had likened the IPOB leader, as the Moses of his people.
From the story of Moses in the Holy Bible, Moses saw the promised land, but he did not go into it. Would this be the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu? Will he see the coming of Biafra, but not enter Biafra? While Nnamdi Kanu see the end of 2021, unlike the declarations of two clerics to the contrary?
The coming of Nnamdi Kanu into the Biafran struggle, awoke many nationalists from across the nation, to start jostling for national identity. Suddenly, we started seeing the likes of Sunday Igboho from the South West, jostling for a Yoruba nation, alongside Nnamdi Kanu.
In the Middle Belt, we have also see agitations, as the nation is rocked with threats of disintegration. Even the North have finally started considering an end to Nigeria, with certain sections, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, to allow the exit of the South East from the Nigerian fold, while Kanu is insisting on the inclusion of the South South in his Biafran struggle.
But with the prophesies making the rounds, the likelihood of Nnamdi Kanu seeing that, which he has fought for over the years, becomes in doubt.
Can the prophesies be true? If they are true, is there a way to avert them, and allow him reap the fruits of his labour, if Biafra should come to pass?
Kanu had yet to react to the prophesies and warnings of doom against him, but analysts believe that an attempt on Kanu’s life, could snowball into further catastrophic events, and rather than prevent the disintegration of the country, may even force a violent breakup.
