The Senior Pastor of Divine Mercy Church, Olatobiloba Peters has revealed that IPOB members might declare war on the President.
He made this disclosure while speaking on Tuesday saying he saw the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu in a coffin.
According to him, the death of the Nnamdi Kanu in custody could unleash the greatest violence in the country and urged Nigerians to pray against war in these times.
He also advised the Federal Government to treat Nnamdi Kanu with care.
He said: “I see Nnamdi Kanu in a coffin, he may not come out of his current predicament alive.
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.”
Pastor Peters had said before Kanu’s arrest that the IPOB leader might not live till the end of 2021.
Kanu is largely believed to have been apprehended in Kenya a few weeks ago and returned to Nigeria.
Nnamdi Kanu stood before the Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Binta Nyako, to continue his trial. Justice Nyako, who appeared in court, remanded Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, till the next adjourned date.
