Embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has debunked stories making the rounds that his younger brother, Kanunta Kanu, and some close allies like IPOB Secretary, Carolyn Okoroafor, and one Madam Nnennaya Anya, were behind his arrest and repatriation from Kenya by the Nigerian government.
The story had been gaining momentum on social media and blogs in the past few days, but Kanu who is currently incacerated in the facilities of the Directorate of State Services (DSS) through his lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has come out to say the story is false.
Describing the news as not only false but mischievous, Kanu admonished those behind it to desist from spreading the fake news or he will be forced to take legal actions against them.
Ejiofor who related Kanu’s position on his Facebook page on Tuesday shortly after his routine visit to the Biafran agitator at the headquarters of the DSS in Abuja, wrote:
“Our client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has noted with displeasure and rude shock, the obviously false narrative being peddled by those whose primary intention is to cause mischief and on that note, he specifically directed that we should inform those who care to listen that neither the trio of Mazi Kanunta Kanu, Carolyn Okoroafor, Madam Nnennaya Anya, nor any other person in the DOS was instrumental to his abduction in Kenya and subsequent extraordinary rendition to Nigeria.
“Onyendu warned those mischievously purveying these fake news to desist forthwith, and accordingly issue a retraction to the effect of this damaging blackmail to the trio of Kanunta Kanu, Nnennaya Anya and Carolyn Okoroafor, and this must be done without further ado or they will face legal actions. He was very emphatic on discipline and more importantly C and C.
“Onyendu thanked you all, millions of his supporters and followers for your peaceful conduct so far, and implored you all to keep it up and never derail. He also enjoined you, his followers, to shun distraction of any kind.”
