Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has visited the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The governor, who disclosed this in a post on his Facebook page on Saturday night, quoted the IPOB leader as saying that he would preach peace when released.
“I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, (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 South East.
“It is well indeed!” Soludo wrote.
Kanu is currently facing charges of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism, and illegal possession of firearms, among others.
