Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has visited the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu in Abuja.

The former CBN governor took to his Facebook page late on Saturday to explain his visit, stating that he felicitated with the IPOB Leader, and saw the move as a part of wider consultations to bring lasting peace and security in the south east.

Governor Soludo further described Kanu as a critical stakeholder, and hinted on future visits to other household figures in the south east; in a bid to create lasting peace in Igboland.

“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!” he added.

Recall that Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in Kenya last year, and extradited to Nigeria to face trial for alleged treason against the present government.

The IPOB leader has remained in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) eversince.
