IPOB, recently proscribed by the Federal Government with the backing of the court, had declared Kanu missing since September 14 after the ‘Operation Python Dance II’ staged by the military to quell the activities of the group in Abia State and other states of the South-East.
But Kalu in his interview with Sunday Punch, said Kanu had left the country for the UK on his own.
Kalu had said, “Kanu was not taken away by the military. Kanu went to Malaysia from where he traveled 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 Federal Government 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, who is a very fine and good soldier, well educated and dedicated, and he told me that they don’t know his whereabouts and I am sure, the Department of State Services have the same information.”
Replying Kalu on Sunday, Kanu’s lawyer said the former governor had turned himself to the spokesperson for the Federal Government and the military as part his strategy to get freed from his (Kalu’s) ongoing trial on corruption charges.
Ejiofor stated, “Orji Uzof Kalu is a drowning man, looking for where to perch."
