“They obviously do not know what Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra stand for nor have an inkling of what freedom fighting is about.”

Uchechi described Kanu as a prisoner of conscience and said his arrest has moved people who were once sitting on the fence to support the cause for Biafra.

“His arrest has changed the peoples’ perception about the restoration of Biafra. Evident to this, is the involvement of those who were not IPOB members initially. People are very much aware of the truth that lays bare and Biafrans all over the world are fighting for him and lives have been lost during protests.”

“The Vatican Radio, Per i Diritti Umani as well as the Southeast Based Coalition of Human Rights Organization have also called for his release.”

“I am stronger than I ever was after the success of the birth of our son. I know freedom fighting entails sacrifices as this; he is not here physically which is what we miss, but we are inseparable spiritually.

“I want him to remain very strong and purposive; to know that Biafrans far and wide are behind him. Even in this dark time, what he represents, which is the light and truth, illuminates brighter in their minds than he can ever imagine. He is the voice for the voiceless, hope for the hopeless and those who lost their loved ones and friends and families now look up to that hope he represents.”
