The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has described killings of innocent people, destruction and unlawful restrictions of movement in the Southeast as senseless, insisting such heinous acts are perpetrated by groups masquerading as IPOB to give the struggle a bad identity.
Nnamdi Kanu said this when the Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo paid him a visit at the detention facility of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Soludo described Nnamdi Kanu as being in high spirit while the visit lasted
He said, “I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu 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.”
According to Governor Soludo, if the opportunity arises, Nnamdi Kanu would love to broadcast to his teeming followers to maintain peace saying, 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 “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,” Soludo wrote.
