I Will Stand As Nnamdi Kanu’s Surety If Granted Bail – Orji Kalu
The Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu on Tuesday vowed to stand as surety for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu if granted bail.
The IPOB leader is currently being detained at the facility of the Department of State Service (DSS).
Kalu while speaking on the Channels TV programme on Tuesday expressed confidence that the Federal Government will respect the next court judgement on the bail of Kanu.
The former governor of Abia State disclosed that he is close to the family of the IPOB leader in the Afaraukwu Ibeku area of Abia.
He, however, stated that the IPOB leader and his family did not listen to his counsel.
Kalu noted that he won’t abandon the family despite the continuous detention of Kanu in the DSS facility.
The lawmaker said, “I made his father the traditional ruler of their place when I was governor. I’m close to them but they didn’t listen to me but that will not make him to abandon them. I will not abandon them.
“I will stand surety for him if the Federal Government wants to release him to me. And I can keep him in my compound here in Abuja or Igbere (in Abia) and counsel him.”
