The son of the Biafra leader, who is currently in custody, will be called Nnabuikem.
Nnabuikem literally means ‘God is my strength’.
Uchechi Okwu Kanu delivered a bouncing baby boy on January 5.
Her husband was in mid-October 2015 arrested in Nigeria by the country’s secret police, charged to court where he was granted bail and still remains in DSS custody after meeting all bail conditions. Pro-Biafrans are campaigning for the independence of the territories that constituted the Biafran Republic, established during the civil war in Nigeria which was previously headed by Ojukwu.
IPOB supporters have held a series of protests across the country in recent months to demand Kanu’s release and voice their calls for a breakaway state for the southeastern Igbo people.
Meanwhile, the court recently ordered that Kanu be remanded in prison custody until a bail application is heard on January 25.
