THE Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has disowned a statement attributed to it on the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, national publicity secretary, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Tuesday, June 29, said the group hasn’t spoken on IPOB leader’s arrest.
According to the statement made available to Realnews state: “The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has been drawn to a publication currently circulating in the media suggesting that Ohanaeze Ndigbo has issued a statement regarding the alleged rearrest and re-arraingment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB).
“Ordinarily, we would have ignored the said press release, but silence in this circumstance would mean giving validity to such fallacy to the unsuspecting public.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Ambassador Professor George Obiozor has not issued any press statement on the matter.”
It added that Ohanaeze Ndigbo as the apex Igbo cultural organization does not issue public statements in a hurry.
“We hereby dissociate ourselves from the said press release and also warn those mischief makers, impostors and charlatans peddling the name of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to achieve selfish gains to desist from that shameful misadventure.
“In the event of further breach of this warning Ohanaeze Ndigbo will be compelled to invoke the full weight of the law to deal with the offenders,” it said.
