The Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, on Friday visited the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Soludo made this known in a post on his various social media accounts Saturday night after visiting the IPOB leader on Friday.
He posted, “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 Southeast.”
Soludo becomes the first serving South East Govenror to visit Nnamdi Kanu in detention.
