President Muhammadu Buhari’s words in his first media chat that Kanu would not be released in spite of the High Court rulings due to the "atrocities" he allegedly committed caused outrage among his supporters and the wider Nigerian community.
The pro-Biafran leader was denied bail later in January.
Naij.com's photo-reporter, Yinka Adeparusi, presented exclusive photos of Kanu wearing Biafra-themed attire at his last court hearing.
In the interview Kanu explained why he chose this outfit.
“It is a message, not just to Biafrans but the world at large. We are whiter than white and whiter than snow. I am a Biafran and nothing can stop that. As you can see it goes with a white traditional wear, which proves that I am proud of the Biafran culture and my nation Biafra,” Kanu said.

He further stated that he had never felt deterred over the Biafra struggle following his continued detention.
"Never! Such has never crossed my mind. The Biafra struggle must continue and my detention cannot stop it. It is either Biafra or Death.
“We should continue our peaceful protest. We must not give up and must continue working hard because it is making a lot of impact. We should remember our fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters who have given their lives towards the restoration of Biafra. Their sacrifices should not be in vain, as they are our heroes and heroines. May Chukwuabiama bless them all and bless their households,” the pro-Biafran leader called on his supporters to continue the struggle.
