The wife of Radio Biafra Director and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu has given birth to a baby boy.
Mrs Uchechi Kanu is said to have delivered the child early today, January 5, 2015.
“Good morning great Biafrans with joy in our hearts and celebration of new arrival to IPOB family, our first lady the wife of our eminent leader Joshua Nnamdi Kanu has delivered a healthy baby boy, mother and child are in good health,” a post on Facebook page, “Biafrans with Nnamdi Kanu” read.
Uchechi recently granted an interview on her husband’s reasons for campaigning for Biafra terming him ‘a prisoner of conscience.’
Kanu is currently being held by the Department of State Security (DSS) on charges of treason.
Kanu was arrested in October and supposedly granted bail but he was never freed.
His continued detention has led his followers to launch protests in various part of the country to demand his freedom.
