…as aide finger Senator Hope Uzodinma
Former governor of Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha, have distanced himself from a Press Release congratulating General Muhammadu Buhari, for the arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, purportedly signed on his (Ihedioha’s) behalf, by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu, labelling it as fake.
Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu made this known in a post on his Facebook page, notifying Efizzy that the former Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, never sanctioned such a press release.
The General Muhammadu Buhari administration, had arrested the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya, under yet to be revealed circumstances, and returned him to Nigeria to continue his trial.
The fake release was published on many media platforms.
Another aide of the former governor, Mr. AIC Akwarandu in a similar publication on his Facebook page, fingered Senator Hope Uzodinma directly as the source of the information.
Sharing a screenshot on his Facebook page of a WhatsApp post, Akwarandu revealed that the Imo State governor had allegedly made the post on a WhatsApp group named IMO PEOPLE.
