Ex Gov Kalu checks on embattled Kanu in prison

Former state governor of Abia, Orji Uzor Kalu, on Friday paid a visit to Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) at Kuje Prison in Abuja.

The former governor stated that Kanu who is being tried for offences against the state does not deserve to be in prison.

Kalu who took to his facebook page to make the visit public wrote, “Today, I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison and we engaged in a very long discussion. Kanu is my brother and a son of the soil.

“He shouldn’t be where he is because Kuje Prison is not his home. It is therefore my utmost concern to see him regain his freedom like every other Nigerian”

There are speculations that the former governor who only recently jumped ship to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may have gone to deliver a message from his new found friends to the Biafra agitator.
