Former Imo State Governor, Ikedi Ohakim has met with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu had last week visited former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme.
Ohakim visited the IPOB leader at his country home in Umuahia in Abia State.
No information was given out why the former Imo State Governor visited the IPOB leader as the ex governor is yet to issue on a statement on his visit.
Details of the visit were sketchy but the visit to the sectarian leader by the former Imo State Governor is coming barely a day he will deliver a lecture on the literary icon, Chinua Achebe.
Ohakim will deliver a lecture on Tuesday 23rd May, 2017 at the Institute of Africa Studies at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) on the life and times of late liteaary icon, Prof Chinua Achebe.
Achebe passed on two years ago.
Why I Visited Kanu- Ohakim
The former governor posted the following on his verified facebook wall:
Yesterday I paid a visit to my dear brother Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB at his country home. He is my brother, if not the most courageous Igboman after late General Chukwuemeka Odumeguwu Ojukwu under whose command I took up arms and fought as a child solider for the survival of our people. Nnamdi’s struggle is not just his own, it is our struggle.
I’ll be delivering lecture today Tuesday the 23rd of May, 2017 at the Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) before a local and international audience on the life and times of the late literary icon, Prof. Chinua Achebe, four years after his death on the topic “The Igbo and the leadership question: the Achebe example”. Hope to see you there but I’ll ensure to make the script of my speech and if possible the video available. Chukwu okike gozierem nde Igbo nile
