The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, clocked 54 on Saturday. Kanu was born on September 25, 1967, in Isiama Afara, Abia State.
In June, the IPOB leader was arrested in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria to face treason charges.
He was subsequently arraigned and brought before Binta Nyako, a judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, who asked him to be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony instituted against him at the court in response to his agitation for the Republic of Biafra.
The scheduled trial in July suffered a setback, with the judge adjourning till October 21.
Regardless of Kanu’s continuous detention by the Federal Government, some of his supporters have taken to social media to celebrate him as their hero.
