Biafra: Amaechi, Bishop Onuoha visit Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody
Mbazulike Amaechi, a First Republic politician, has paid a visit to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who is being held by the Department of State Services, DSS.
Bishop Sunday Onuoha, co-Chairman of the Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, accompanied Amaechi on his visit to Kanu.
Kanu’s brother, Kanunta Kanu, revealed the former Minister of Aviation’s visit to the pro-Biafra agitator via his Twitter profile.
According to Kanunta, the visitors “had a meaningful interaction” with Kanu.
“Chief Mbazuruike Amechi and His Grace, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, visited their son #MaziNnamdiKanu the leader of IPOB at #DSS Headquarters in Abuja today, where they had a meaningful interaction,” Kanunta Kanu wrote.
Amaechi had recently led some Igbo elders to the Presidential Villa, where they met with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking on behalf of the elders, Amaechi had urged the president to release Kanu to him.
Responding, Buhari had promised to consider their request.
Kanu has been locked up since June when he was rearrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria to continue his trial.
