Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has visited detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in Department of State Services (DSS) facility in Abuja.
The newly elected governor said his visit to Kanu was to parts of moves to ensure lasting peace in the South-East of Nigeria.
In a post shared on the Facebook page of Anambra Broadcasting Service on Sunday morning, Soludo said the IPOB leader expressed concerns over killings in the South-East and the frequent sit-at-home orders.
Soludo said : “I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Friday, 13th May, 2022, to felicitate with him and also as part of the wider consultations with critical stakeholders in search of lasting peace and security in the South East.
” He was in very high spirits and we had quality and frank discussion in a very convivial atmosphere. He expressed sadness over what he described as “sacrilegious killings” of innocent persons, kidnappings and all forms of criminalities, including the brutal enforcement of the senseless “sit at home” perpetuated by sundry groups claiming to be acting for or on behalf of IPOB. He assured that if the opportunity arises, he will be glad to personally broadcast to his followers to maintain the peace.
“Together, we shall restore peace, security and prosperity in Anambra and the Southeast.
It is well indeed!”
PlatinumPost reports that Kanu has been in detention in DSS facility following his alleged forceful abduction from Kenya by agents of the government some months ago.
