Son of Late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu jr, Emeka Ojukwu jnr has said he has no dealings with Biafra agiators.
His comments have vindicated President Muhammadu Buhari on his celebrated discussions with his late father on the unity and indivisibility of the Nigerian nation.
Buhari in a nationwide broadcast had said he and the late Ojukwu had met in Awka
Ojukwu who spoke in Awka in a statement countered claims by Biafra agitators that at no time did Buhari and his late father met.
He said, “It has been brought to my attention that there is an article making the rounds on social media attributed to me refuting the remarks of Mr. President concerning his relationship and discussions with my late father.
“Let me state the following categorically; firstly, that I made no such comments to anybody, and secondly that I am aware that His Excellency’s comments were indeed factual.
“I have noticed a disturbing trend recently of fake news being attributed to me on social media. I don’t know who is behind it or what their motivation might be but let me assure you that any time I feel the need to comment publicly on any matter, I will not do so via some anonymous email or anything of the like, rather be rest assured that there will be no ambiguity whatsoever as to whether the comments came from me.
“Let me lend my voice to those of the rest of my fellow countrymen and welcome Mr. President back home.”
Ojukwu Jr. urged members of the public to discountenance the stories in the social media or any media platform whatsoever credited to him that he accused Buhari of telling lies, warning that such malicious and damaging publications would not be taken lightly should it be repeated.
He also urged the President not to take such comments seriously as it smacks of gutter and yellow media reportage aimed at overheating the polity
