Kanu has since been held in detention by the Department of State Security Services in Abuja.
Governor Soludo shared details of the meeting held on Friday, including photos, on his verified social media handles on Saturday night.
The shared photographs are that of the governor with Kanu.
The meeting held in a room with two cushion furniture, tables, television sets and a map board.
Soludo said that the IPOB leader, who was happy to receive him, expressed sadness over the killings in the South-East.
Kanu reportedly described the killings as sacrilegious.
He said, “I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, (Friday, May 13) to felicitate with him and also as part of the wider consultations with critical stakeholders in search of lasting peace and security in the South-East.
“He was in very high spirits and we had quality and frank discussions in a very convivial atmosphere.
“He expressed sadness over what he described as ‘sacrilegious killings’ of innocent persons, kidnappings and all forms of criminalities, including the brutal enforcement of the senseless sit at home perpetuated by sundry groups claiming to be acting for or on behalf of IPOB.”
According to Soludo, the IPOB leader said that if the opportunity arises, he would be glad to broadcast to his followers to maintain the peace.
Kanu was arrested last year on the allegation of treasonable felony and terrorism, which he denied, while the Federal Government alleged IPOB of criminality and violence in the South-East.
