Nnamdi Kanu, a Biafra militant, would be free by December 2021, according to Prophet Odumeje, whose real name is Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere.
During a taped prayer session, the cleric made the prophecy.
Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, and others were in attendance.
Odumeje said: “Lord, your son Nnamdi Kanu is coming out this December, in the name of Jesus.
“There is nothing you said that will never come to pass. Lord, we have started this battle with your name, and we shall overcome with your name.
“Your son (Ejiofor) in the front of the battle, be with him always. Give them strength, give them wisdom. This is a battle of wisdom and the wisdom comes from you.
“In the presence of the judge, everything that comes out of his (Ejiofor’s) mouth shall be wisdom. Victory shall be given to us.”
The Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry in Anambra has Odumeje as its General Overseer.
Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is accused of treason for actions against the state.
After years on the run, the secessionist was apprehended outside Nigeria and repatriated on June 27.
In October, Kanu’s trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja will resume. He is being held at a facility run by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The motion for transfer to Kuje Prison by his legal team had been denied by Justice Binta Nyako.
Security agencies anticipate Kanu’s supporters will attack the detention center in order to liberate him.
