The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide headed by its President Prof George Obiozor has denied making a publication over the rearrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Speaking through a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonna, in Enugu, it advised the mischief-makers, imposters and charlatans peddling the name of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to achieve selfish gains to desist from such disgraceful acts.
On Tuesday, the Ohanaeze Youth Council President, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, made a press release stated that the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu has averted civil war.
However, Mr Ogbonna started that the organization has not released any statement and does not issue a public statement in a hurry.
“The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has been drawn to a publication currently circulating in the media suggesting that Ohanaeze has issued a statement regarding the alleged re-arrest and re-arraignment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Ordinarily, we would have ignored the said press release, but silence in this circumstance would mean giving validity to such fallacy by the unsuspecting public.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo, led by Ambassador Prof George Obiozor, has not issued any press statement on the matter. Ohanaeze Ndigbo, as the apex Igbo cultural organisation, does not issue public statements in a hurry.’’
