Former governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, senator Orji Uzor Kalu has paid a visit to the embattled leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu who is currently in the Department of Security Service detention facility in Abuja

Senator Kalu in a statement said he met the leader of the separatist movement in good health and care and the both of them had a good discussion as brothers.

The Abia born business mogul said he is aware that Nnamdi has alot of supporters who are praying for him to return home but he will still encourage Kanu to consider what he described as the “consequences of certain actions and utterances for the sake of the same people”

He said even though his idealogy and that of Nnamdi Kanu might not be the same, the both of them will continue to be brothers because God has made it so

Kalu further noted that he owe Nnamdi Kanu and Nigerians good counseling and whether Kanu and his family listens to him or not, he will continue to counsel him as he has always done in the past.
He however said that what is more paramount is having a peaceful and secured society.

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 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.
