Obiano Denies Involvement in Kanu’s Arrest
Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano has denied involvement in the alleged arrest a s extradition of separatist leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Obiano who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr James Eze in a press release said there was no truth that Obiano and some other people mentioned by separatist agitators worked to deliver Kanu to the Buhari-led federal government.
Eze’s press release read in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a story in alleging that the Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano was involved in the plot to kidnap and repatriate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) from Kenya to Nigeria.
“The general public is enjoined to disregard that story because it is totally false without the tinniest grain of truth. The governor of Anambra State had no hand in any plot against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
Eze stated further that the federal government didn’t need the assistance of any state governor to arrest anyone, as it has the capability and also controlled the country’s military.
“It should be crystal clear to anyone that the Federal Government of Nigeria headed by Muhammadu Buhari as the President and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, does not need the assistance of a governor who has no control over any security and intelligence architecture to do whatever it wants to do.
“The report is therefore a deliberate act of mischief that should be ignored by the general public,” he said.
