Nnamdi Kanu displeased with killings, sit-at-home orders – Soludo

Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, asserts that Nnamdi Kanu, the arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is dissatisfied with the killings and execution of the prolonged sit-at-home order in the South-East.

It has always been carried out by groups pretending to be acting on his behalf.

However, Mr. Soludo stated that this was part of his conversation with Mr. Kanu during his Friday visit to the banned IPOB leader’s holding facility in Abuja.

Christian Aburime, a spokesman for Mr. Soludo who released a statement on Sunday in Awka, cited Mr. Soludo as stating that Mr. Kanu’s condition was stable.

“Kanu is in favour of continuing the quest for a sustainable solution to the insecurity in the South-Eastern region of the country,” according to the statement.

According to him, “Kanu informed me that, if given the opportunity, he would address the deteriorating security situation in the South-East through an agitational broadcast.

“On May 13, I paid a congratulatory visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as part of broader engagements with key stakeholders in search of enduring peace and security in the South-East.

“He was in a very good mood, and we had a substantive and candid conversation in a very convivial environment.

“He expressed regret over what he termed’sacrilegious deaths’ of innocent people, kidnappings, and all forms of criminality, including the ruthless implementation of the stupid sit-at-home by various organisations purporting to be acting on behalf of or on behalf of IPOB.

“If the occasion presents itself, he (Kanu) will gladly personally broadcast to his people to keep peace,” he said.

Since Mr. Kanu’s arrest more than a year ago, the illegal pro-Biafran group has designated every Monday a stay-at-home day in his honour.

Socioeconomic activity in the five South-Eastern states of Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo, and Anambra were paralysed by the circumstance.
