Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu on Monday visited the Leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the DSS custody Abuja.
Speaking to 9News Nigeria after the visit, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu said he met Nnamdi Kanu in “good health and care.”
Senator Kalu said he understands that Nnamdi has an insane amount of people rooting for his back home and I encouraged him to consider the consequences of certain actions and utterances for the sake of the same people.
According to him,
” This afternoon, I visited my brother, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody , Abuja . I met him in good health and care and we discussed as ‘Umunne’. In 2001 when I was Governor, I made his father Eze Israel Okwu Kanu
traditional ruler of Akwara Ukwu and since then the family has been very close to me . “
” I understand that Nnamdi has an insane amount of people rooting for his back home and I encouraged him to consider the consequences of certain actions and utterances for the sake of the same people. “
“Even though, my ideology and his ideology are totally different , God has made us brothers and we can’t run away from each other. I owe him and Nigerians good counseling …Whether he and his family listens to me or not, I will continue counseling him as I have always done in the past. What we need most is a peaceful and secured society.”
