In a statement posted in his official Facebook page, on Monday afternoon, Senator Orji Kalu, who represents Abia North senatorial district, while at visit to the IPOB leader at DSS facility in Abuja, on Monday, counselled Kanu to consider the consequence of certain actions and utterances for the sake of the peace of Nigeria and her people.

He stated, “This afternoon, I visited my brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody, Abuja. I met him in good health and care and we discussed “Umunne”. In 2001, I made his father, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu, traditional ruler of Afaraukwu and since then the family has been very close to me.

“I understand that Nnamdi Kanu has an insane amount of people rooting for him 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.”
