Former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha has denied being responsible for the viral voice note purporting a threat and a letter from him to the Minister of Justice, asking him not to release Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Ihedioha made the revelation via a statement he personally signed and released where he claimed that the voice note was “criminally” forged, saying those behind it were aiming at putting him at daggers drawn with the people.
The Imo-born Politician has now called on security operatives to thoroughly investigate those impersonating him and forging his signature for documents that did not emanate from him.
Ihedioha added that he chose to remain silent since January 14, 2020, when the Supreme Court nullified his election as governor of the State.
“I consciously yielded to the maxim that silence is golden, so as not to inflame passion in our dear state. But there comes a time when silence is no longer golden. That time is now. It appears that some people are not satisfied with their stolen mandate.
“They have forged documents, concocted voice messages, perjured and maximised the social media in throwing mud to see if anyone sticks. They use issues that are very dear to our people in this nefarious project,” the statement added.
