Peace In South-East: Soludo Visits Nnamdi Kanu In DSS Custody


Anambra State governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, on Friday visited the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu who is facing trial for alleged treason has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja.

He was rearrested in Kenya last year and brought back to Nigeria.

A statement by the governor said the visit was “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.”

Kanu was said to be in very high spirits and both men had quality and frank discussion in a very convivial atmosphere.

The governor said Kanu expressed sadness over the “sacrilegious killings” of innocent persons, kidnappings and all forms of criminalities in the South East and elsewhere in Nigeria, “including the brutal enforcement of the senseless “sit at home” perpetuated by sundry groups claiming to be acting for or on behalf of IPOB.”

Kanu also assured that if the opportunity arises, he will be glad to personally broadcast to his followers to maintain the peace.

Soludo has been preaching peace since he was sworn in as the governor of Anambra State.

The visit is part of his ongoing consultations to restore normalcy in the South-East. He concluded the statement by saying, “together, we shall restore peace, security and prosperity in Anambra and the Southeast.”
