Detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has named his newly born son, Nnabuikem, Naij reports.
Nnabuikem means ‘God is my strength’.
Uchechi Okwu Kanu delivered a bouncing baby boy on January 5th, 2016.
Her husband was in October 2015 arrested in Nigeria by the DSS and charged to court where he was granted bail and still remains in their custody after meeting all bail conditions.
A Federal High court in Abuja ruled on Wednesday that Kanu be freed from DSS custody and remanded in Kuje prison, Abuja where he can have access to his family members until a bail application is heard on January 25.
