Kalu also promised to speak to the Federal Government to see how Kanu’s case can be resolved outside the court.
The former Governor also said Kanu has given him the mandate to speak on his behalf, adding he is ready to help.
According to AIT, Kalu also called on the IPOB leader to sheath his sword and give peace a chance.
The former Governor, in a post on his Facebook page, said “Today, I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison and we engaged in a very long discussion. Kanu is my brother and a son of the soil.
“He shouldn’t be where he is because Kuje Prison is not his home. It is therefore my utmost concern to see him regain his freedom like every other Nigerian.”
The former Governor’s visit is coming after the IPOB leader insulted President Buhari for attempting to jail him.
