Nnamdi Kanu is in London, he fled through Malaysia — Ex governor Orji Kalu
The former governor of Abia State, where IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is from, has revealed that Kanu has fled the country, following the military crackdown in the state.
Orji Kanu made the disclosure in an interview with Punchng. He said the FG outlawed the activities of the IPOB because its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, ignored the elders’ advice
Speaking about his meeting with Nnamdi Kanu in the prison, he said: “I spoke with Nnamdi Kanu in the prison and gave him quality advice. I counselled him to embrace peace and agree with whatever terms that will set him free.
I also warned him against allowing his boys to be displaying Biafra flags, coat of arms, organising parades, establishing secret security service, and mounting a guard of honour.
I told him that by doing all these, his group had subdued the sovereignty of Nigeria and are therefore looking for trouble. No government on earth including the U.S will allow any group to be championing the cause of dividing their country.”
On his whereabouts now, he said: “Kanu was not taken away by the military. Kanu went to Malaysia from where he travelled to the United Kingdom. Nnamdi Kanu is in London right now as we speak.
He was not arrested by anybody. He left the country on his own. One of his relations has spoken to me and explained everything because I wanted to see him and talk to him wherever he was and see how I could meet some FG officials on his issue.
I also wanted to see ways of talking to the President about him, and find common ground but his family told me that he has left the country, unless they are lying to me.
I believe, whether he had left the country or not, he is not with the military because I asked the Commander of the 14 Brigade, Brig.-Gen. A.K Ibrahim, and he told me that they don’t know his whereabouts.”
