”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 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 listen to me or not.
“I will continue to counsel him as I have always done in the past. What we need most is a peaceful and secured society.”
The above were the words of the Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, when he visited the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, on Monday afternoon.
The former Abia State governor in a statement personally signed by him also said the IPOB leader was in good health and under proper care.
Senator Uzor-Kalu added that he spoke with Kanu as a brother and told him the need to consider the consequences of certain actions that he would be taking.
The former governor added: “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, the traditional ruler of Akwara Ukwu and since then the family has been very close to me.”
