Chukwuma Soludo, governor of Anambra State, has paid a visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra #IPOB.
When released, the IPOB leader, according to the governor, will preach peace.
Soludo announced this in a Facebook post on Saturday night after visiting the IPOB leader.
He posted, “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.
Kanu, who is facing charges including treason, treasonable felony, terrorism, and illegal possession of firearms, allegedly jumped bail in 2017 and fled the country, only to resurface in Israel and then the United Kingdom.
He was arrested in late 2015 after calling for the creation of a separate state for Biafra in South-East Nigeria.
He was re-arrested before a Federal High Court in Abuja and ordered to be detained by the DSS.
Following Kanu’s unexpected appearance in a Federal High Court in Abuja on June 29, 2021, Nigeria’s Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami, SAN, stated at a press conference that Kanu was “intercepted through the collaborative efforts of Nigerian intelligence and Security Services.”
