Nigerian oil magnate and entrepreneur, Emeka Offor, has told his accusers that he has nothing to do with Nnamdi Kanu’s repatriation to Nigeria.
He made the disclosure in a statement issued by his Media Aide, Ebuka Onochie Obi.
Offor and other prominent Nigerians were been accused by the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) of conspiring with the Nigerian government to betray its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
They claimed that Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State; Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State; and Igbo business man, Chief Emeka Offor, conspired and sabotaged Kanu to safeguard their selfish political and business interests.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful claimed that those mentioned bankrolled the extradition of Kanu from Kenya.
However, Offor noted that the allegations were false and were made and perpetuated by uninformed mischief makers whose goal is to malign his person.
The statement reads: “Sir Dr Emeka Offor, the Chrome Group of Companies and Sir Emeka Offor Foundation have become aware of web-based allegations, purportedly linking Sir Dr Emeka Offor with the recent repatriation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria.
“It is common knowledge that Sir Dr Emeka Offor seldom grants interviews or engage in media/press statements except when issues dealing with the activities of his charitable and non-governmental Foundation – Sir Emeka Offor Foundation (SEOF) are involved.
“However, it has become necessary in the present circumstances to state categorically that there is absolutely no truth in these allegations made and perpetuated by uninformed mischief makers whose only desire is to malign and bring Sir Dr Emeka to disrepute.
“For the records, Sir Emeka Offor Foundation has been engaged in helping people in need become independent and self-sufficient. Since the onset of the global pandemic which has laid waste the financial aspirations of individuals, Organizations and Countries, SEOF has made significant and unparalleled interventions in the health and educational sectors of our economy”.
