As the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has been at the forefront of the agitation for the independence of Biafra from Nigeria and as a result, has suffered imprisonment.
But many observers believe Nnamdi Kanu's approach to the Biafran agitation is counterproductive given his penchant for making inciting statements.
However, despite Kanu's penchant for confrontational statements, many others also believe the IPOB leader's agitation will end up benefiting Nigerians at large, irrespective of tribe or region.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, challenged the court decision to proscribe his group.

Kanu, in a motion on notice filed against an order made by the Federal High Court on Wednesday, September 20, said the order proscribing IPOB as a terrorist organization is illegal.
The motion also stressed that the IPOB is a non-violent group and that the Abuja Division of the Federal High made its order based on a motion ex-parte without the presence of other party or parties involved in the matter.
