A former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu has denied that he instructed the Department of State Services (DSS) to starve the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Some reports had alleged that Kalu instructed the DSS not to feed Kanu after his visit to the IPOB leader at the security agency’s facility in Abuja.
Reacting to the accusation via Facebook, Kalu described the reports as “cock and bull” stories.
“A friend said the statement below is been circulated on social media and I urge you to please ignore as it’s a big fat lie and cheap propaganda.
“The circulating lie says, “When Senator Orji Uzor Kalu visited DSS and Mazi Nnamdi, he told the DSS to stop giving Nnamdi Kanu food and Nnamdi Kanu has been living without food since then ”
“My brief take is that there is nothing one would do that people won’t talk about. If you don’t visit, they will blame you for not visiting.
“If you visit, they will still blame you. But more sympathetic to me is those that believe and propagate any cock and bull story. If the agenda is to create hatred between me and my brothers, it’s a waste of time because my people love me and I love them too. I will always respond to hate with love.”
