Olatobiloba Peters, senior pastor of Divine Mercy Church, on Tuesday, called on Nigerians to pray for leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Peters, who spoke to Daily Post, said Kanu may not survive his current predicament.
The cleric urged the federal government not to use force on the IPOB leader, saying his death in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), will trigger further crisis in the country.
“I see Kanu in a coffin. I see his followers declaring war on the president and Nigerians as vengeance. Nigeria is at a junction,” he said.
“I will advice 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.
“Nigerians should pray seriously against war in this season. I see Nnamdi Kanu in a coffin, he may not come out of his current predicament alive.”
It was reported that prior to Kanu’s re-arrest, the pastor had said the IPOB leader may not live till the end of 2021.
Kanu had jumped bail and fled to the United Kingdom in 2017, after soldiers raided his house in Abia State.
The IPIOB leader, who is widely believed to have been arrested in Kenya, was extradited on June 27, to continue his trial on treasonable charges.
He was re-arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on June 29.
Nyako ordered that he should be remanded in the custody of the DSS, and adjourned the trial until July 26.
