Uchechi Kanu, the wife of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), expressed gratitude towards Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, the representative of Anambra South Senatorial District, for facilitating her long-awaited visit to her husband at the Department of State Services (DSS) facility in Abuja.

In a live session on Radio Biafra, Mrs. Kanu revealed that she finally managed to see her husband on April 16, after facing repeated denials from DSS officials. Kanu has been held in DSS custody since his extradition from Kenya in 2021, following his rearrest for allegedly breaching bail conditions in 2017.

During the radio program, Mrs. Kanu addressed Igbo individuals residing in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world, expressing her appreciation for the support extended to her family. She acknowledged the genuine concern of many Igbo elites regarding her husband’s unjust detention and revealed that Senator Ubah played a crucial role in facilitating her visit.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, who promptly assisted in arranging my visit to my husband in DSS custody. I am grateful, sir,” Mrs. Kanu stated.

Senator Ubah confirmed his involvement in facilitating Mrs. Kanu’s visit, stating that upon learning of her difficulties in visiting her husband, he intervened promptly. He further explained that he personally accompanied Mrs. Kanu during her visit to the DSS facility on April 16, alongside Barrister Ejiofor.

Mrs. Kanu’s visit to her husband, made possible through Senator Ubah’s intervention, signifies the collective effort of concerned individuals to address the injustice surrounding Nnamdi Kanu’s detention and advocate for his release.
