The Senate Chief Whip and former Abia State Governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in the DSS custody.
Recall that Kanu, since he was extra-renditioned to Nigeria in June, has been held under custody of the Department of Security Service, DSS, pending his continuous court hearing.
While in the DSS custody, only his Lawyers and his family members are allowed to visit him. However, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, representing Abia North senatorial district, earlier today paid a visit to the IPOB Leader.
Revealing this via his verified Facebook page, Senator Kalu said, he saw Nnamdi Kanu in good health and they both discussed as brothers.
According to Kalu, Nnamdi Kanu who doubles as the Prince of Afara Ukwu kingdom in Umuahia – is his brother and he (during his tenure as Abia State Governor – made his father, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu the King of Akwara Ukwu.
He noted that he advised Kanu to watch his utterance, especially as he has “insane amount of people rooting for his release.”
In his words; “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.
