Governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has paid a visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Soludo said as part of his interaction with Kanu during his visit to his detention facility on Friday in Abuja, that the proscribed IPOB leader is unhappy with the killings and enforcement of the protracted sit-at-home order in the South-East.
Mr Christian Aburime, Chief Press Secretary to the Anambra State governor in a statement on Sunday in Awka, quoted Soludo as saying that Kanu was in a stable condition and is in support of the continuation of the search for a sustainable solution to the insecurity in the South-Eastern part of the country.
According to Soludo, Kanu told him that if given the opportunity, he would make a broadcast that would address the degenerating security situation in the South-East under the guise of agitation.
Since the detention of Kanu more than a year ago, the illegal pro-Biafran group had declared every Monday sit-at-home, in sympathy for their leader.
The situation had paralysed socio-economic activities in the five South-Eastern states of Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo and Anambra.
Stakeholders from the region have appealed for the release of Kanu in order to douse tension in the region, but President Muhammadu Buhari has repeatedly stated that only the courts can decide the IPOB leader’s fate.
