Nnamdi Kanu: Ex-Imo Gov, Ihedioha disowns voice note. Former Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha has distanced himself from a voice message that was allegedly a threat and a letter he wrote to the Justice Minister pleading with the Minister to hold IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu captive.
The former governor said the voice note was “criminally” manufactured in a statement he personally signed and released on Sunday. He claimed those responsible wanted to bring him to a standoff with the populace.
He urged security personnel to rigorously look into anybody using his name and signature on documents that weren’t actually his.
Ihedioha said that after the Supreme Court invalidated his election as the State’s governor on January 14, 2020, he had made the decision to keep quiet.
“I purposefully chose to follow the adage that quiet is golden in order to avoid stirring up emotions in our beloved state. But there comes a point where remaining silent is no longer a virtue. The moment has come. It seems that some individuals are not happy with their mandate that was stolen.
“They have fabricated papers, created voicemails, lied, and made the most of social media tossing dirt to see who stays. In this evil effort, they utilize matters that are very important to our people, the statement said.
