Igbo sociocultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has denied a statement credited to it on the re-arrest and arraignment of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to the National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, the group is yet to make known its position and the erstwhile media statement credited to the group was supposedly released by ‘impostors’.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Ambassador Professor 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,’’ Ogbonnia said.
The group which issued the disclaimed statement on Tuesday, also calls itself Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.
It said Kanu’s arrest will avert another civil war and bring peace to the south-east.
Its secretary, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said the development will bring violent agitations in the south-east to an end.
