Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Charles Soludo on Friday visited the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, as part of his “lasting peace and security in the South East.”

Bothe met at Kanu’s detention base, the headquarters of Department of State Services (DSS) headquarters, Abuja.

Governor Soludo said in a statement he personally signed that Nnamdi Kanu “was in very high spirits and we had quality and frank discussion in a very convivial atmosphere.”

According to the Governor, the IPOB leader “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.”

According to the statement by Soludo, “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.

“It is well indeed!”
