Former President- General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo has continued his war of word with the Pro Biafra group he one time led.
In his latest reply involving the ongoing violence trending in the South East, especially Anambra State and Imo State, Nwodo in a statement issued on Sunday stated that he had been silent since his tenure expired as he wanted to ease his successor into the new position.
He also added that he never accused the IPOB group of being responsible for the ongoing violence in most South East states. In a statement reported by Daily Post Nigeria, Nnia Nwodo stated that, ” My attention has been drawn to a publication alleging that I made a statement on the recent killings in Imo and Anambra States. The statement further alleged that I referred to IPOB as being responsible for the killings” .
” I state without reservation that I didn’ t make any such statements. I have deliberately refused any press interviews since I finished serving out my tenure as President General of Ohaneze. I took this decision in order to ensure that my successor’ s voice is undiluted and unmistaken as the sole voice of Ohaneze leadership. ”
