Kalu visits Nnamdi Kanu in detention, says he's in good health

Orji Uzor Kalu

Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has visited the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the detention facility of the Department of State Services, DSS in Abuja.
Kalu, in a  post on his verified Facebook page, stated that the detained activist was in good health.
“This afternoon, I visited my brother, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody , Abuja . I met him in good health and care and we discussed ‘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 secure society,” former Abia State governor stressed.
The IPOB leader was arrested and repatriated to Nigeria from Kenya in June this year and has since been in the DSS custody from where he’s been facing trial.
Kanu had in July filed an application before the Federal High Court, Abuja, seeking to be transferred from the custody of DSS, to the Nigeria Correctional Service in Kuje, Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

In the application filed through his team of lawyers, led by Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, he decried the fact that he had been denied access to his doctors.
