Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu, the Nigerian Senate’s chief whip, made a visit to Nnamdi Kanu, the arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in DSS custody in Abuja on November 29.

The former Abia governor said he met Nnamdi Kanu in a hale and hearty condition in a Facebook post on his verified page. He stated that they discussed the meeting like brothers and that he asked him to think about certain comments and acts for the good of the people.

He wrote;

”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 Afara 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.”
