The Senior Pastor of Divine Mercy Church, Olatobiloba Peters, on Tuesday said Nigerians should pray for Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Pastor Peters disclosed that the IPOB leader may not scale through his current predicament alive because “I see Kanu in a coffin.”
The clergyman said Kanu’s group and followers would declare war on the president should Kanu dies while in custody.
He, therefore, urged the Federal Government to be careful in handling Kanu’s matter.
He warned that Kanu’s matter could trigger the mother of all violence in Nigeria.
Nigerians should pray seriously against war in this season. I see Nnamdi Kanu in a coffin, he may not come out of his current predicament alive.
Speaking with the press, he said: “I see his followers declaring war on the president and Nigerians as vengeance. Nigeria is at a junction.
“I will advise those in power to handle this case carefully because one misstep could trigger the mother of all violence in Nigeria, his group are seriously aggrieved and planning seriously.
“As a man of God, I say Kanu should be treated with care because I see he is currently fragile and his death would have serious repercussions.
“This government should take my words seriously because I see great danger ahead if things are not handled carefully.”
Prior to Kanu’s rearrest, Pastor Peters had disclosed that the IPOB leader may not live till the end of 2021.
Kanu is widely believed to have been arrested in Kenya a few weeks ago and was repatriated to Nigeria.
The IPOB leader was re-arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court, Abuja to continue his trial.
Appearing before the court, Justice Nyako had remanded Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, until the next adjourned date.
