Igbo leaders exploit options for release of Nnamdi Kanu

Following the prolonged detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, by the Department of State Services (DSS), Igbo leaders have been exploiting options to ensure his release.
On Monday, former Abia state governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, in a post on his verified Facebook page, said that he visited the IPOB leader and tried to talk him into making peace with the federal government.
He said: “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 200, 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 him 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.”
