He made his visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu public ion a post he shared on his verified facebook page which reads;
This afternoon, I visited my brother, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody , Abuja . I met him in good health and care and we discussed as ‘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 secured society.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is currently in a DSS holding facility is facing terrorism-related charges before Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja, and his trial is adjourned till January 2022.
