What Mazi Nnamdi Kanu told Gov Chukwuma Soludo on Friday: “I’m against brutal enforcement of sit-at-home in Southeast.”
Leader of the separatist group, Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is against enforcement of sit-at-home in Southeast.
Kanu is being held at a Department of State Security (DSS) facility in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, while facing treason trial.
Kanu also expressed sadness over “sacrilegious killings of innocent persons, kidnappings and all forms of criminalities.”
If given an opportunity, he volunteered to make a broadcast to ask his followers “to maintain peace.”
Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo made these revelations yesterday after a visit to the detainee.
The visit to sue for peace took place on Friday, 13 May 2022, Governor Soludo said in a Facebook post.
Here’s the full text of the statement:
“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.
“(Kanu) 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!”
