Jubilatoon rent social media on Sunday after it emerged that Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo visited the detained leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Abuja.
Kanu has been held in the custody of the Department of State Services in Abuja since June last year when he was abducted in Nairobi, Kenya by Nigerian security agents and brought back to Nigeria illegally.
He has been remanded in DSS custody by a Federal High Court in Abuja where he is standing trial for treasonable felony.
Explaining his mission in a post on his personal Facebook page on Sunday morning, the governor said: “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!
CC. Soludo, CFR”
It was also observed that Kanu was putting on a different set of clothes as ordered by the court.
Commentators on Facebook praised Soludo for taking the good step to bring a quick end to the insecurity ravaging the South-East.
