Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has denied rumouors that some of his family members and close allies were instrumental to his re-arrest in Kenya.
Kanu described as false the notion that his brother, Kanunta; Secretary, Carolyn Okoroafor, and one Madam Nnennaya Anya, were behind his capture.
The IPOB leader described the news mischievous; hence those behind it must stop and issue a retraction.
Kanu’s reaction was made public by his Lead Counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor during their routine briefing at the headquarters of the Department of State Services, DSS.
In a post on Facebook, Ejiofor wrote: “Our Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu 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. 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.”
Kanu, who has been agitating for the actualization of Biafra was rearrested in Kenya and repatriated to continue his trial.
