Biafra: What I Told Nnamdi Kanu In DSS Custody — Orji Ozor Kalu

Orji Ozor Kalu has revealed what he told Biafra activist, Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody.

Newsone reports that the Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, has said he visited Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), Nigeria’s secret police on Monday afternoon, November 29, 2021.

This online news platform understands that Orji Uzor Kalu made this known in a statement personally signed by him and made available to journalists in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

In the statement, Newsone Nigeria reports that Orji Uzor Kalu said Nnamdi Kanu was in good health and under proper care when he visited him in DSS custody.

Kalu, a former governor of Abia State where Nnamdi Kanu hails from, 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 statement by Orji Uzor Kalu reads as thus; “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.

” 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 counselling 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.”
