The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is not happy over “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”.

 

 

Governor of Anambra State, Prof Charles Soludo, stated this on Saturday after his visit to Kanu, the detained leader of IPOB, at the headquarters of the Department of State Security (DSS), on Friday.

 

 

Soludo said the visit to Kanu was part of his ‘wider consultations’ with critical stakeholders to ensure lasting peace and security in the South-east.

 

“I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu 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 discussions 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”, Soludo disclosed in a post on his Facebook page Saturday night.

 

He said the IPOB leader promised to ‘personally’ prevail on his followers, through a broadcast, to maintain peace whenever he gets the opportunity to interact with them.

 

“Together, we shall restore peace, security and prosperity in Anambra State and the South-east”, the governor noted.

 

Prof Soludo expressed hope for imminent restoration of peace, security and prosperity in Anambra and the South East.

 

 

Kanu had been in detention since June 2021, following his arrest and extradition to Nigeria, over alleged leadership of a proscribed separatist group, the IPOB, jumping of bail and treason.

 

He is expected to appear in court on Wednesday, May 18, for continuation of his trial.
