Nnamdi Kanu unhappy over killings, sit-at-home order in Southeast
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the terrorist group Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is unhappy with the killings and enforcement of the protracted sit-at-home order in the South-East, according to Anambra Governor Chukwuma Soludo.
The order has always been carried out by groups claiming to represent him.
However, during a visit to the proscribed IPOB leader in his detention facility in Abuja on Friday, Soludo said this was part of his conversation with Kanu.
Mr Christian Aburime, Soludo’s Chief Press Secretary, said in a statement issued on Sunday in Awka that Kanu was in a stable condition.
“Nnamdi Kanu supports the continuation of the search for a long-term solution to the insecurity in the country’s south-east,” the statement said.
“If given the opportunity, Nnamdi Kanu informed me that he would make a broadcast that would address the deteriorating security situation in the South-East under the guise of agitation,” he said.
“On May 13, I paid a visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanuo to congratulate him and as part of broader consultations with key stakeholders in the search for long-term peace and security in the South-East.
“He was in a great mood, and we had a great conversation in a very relaxed atmosphere.”
“He expressed sadness over’sacrilegious killings’ of innocent people, kidnappings, and all forms of criminality, including the brutal enforcement of the senseless sit-at-home by various groups claiming to be acting for or on behalf of IPOB.”
“If the opportunity arises, he (Kanu) assured that he will gladly personally broadcast to his followers to maintain the peace,” he said.
Since Kanu’s detention over a year ago, the illegal pro-Biafran group has declared a Monday sit-in in solidarity with their leader.
The situation had brought the five South-Eastern states of Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo, and Anambra to a standstill.(NAN)
