Senator Orji Kalu Meets Nnamdi Kanu At DSS Custody, Says IPOB Leader In Good Health

Former Governor of Abia State and the Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu on Monday, visited the leader of the Indigeneous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently detained in the facility of the Department of State Service (DSS).

It was gathered that Kanu is being detained on the order of Justice Binta Murtala Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja, on charges of treasonable felony offence preferred against him by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

In a Facebook post on his verified page, the former Abia governor said he met Nnamdi Kanu in good health. He pointed that they discussed as brothers during the meeting and that he encouraged him to consider certain comments and actions for sake of the people.

”This afternoon, I visited my brother, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody , Abuja . I met him in good health and care and we discussed as ‘Umunne’. In 2001 when I was Governor, I made his father Eze Israel Okwu Kanu

traditional ruler of Afara Ukwu and since then the family has been very close to me .

I understand that Nnamdi has an insane amount of people rooting for his back home and I encouraged him to consider the consequences of certain actions and utterances for the sake of the same people.

Even though, my ideology and his ideology are totally different , God has made us brothers and we can’t run away from each other. I owe him and Nigerians good counseling …Whether he and his family listens to me or not, I will continue counseling him as I have always done in the past. What we need most is a peaceful and secured society.”he wrote.
