The former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has denied making any statement over the attack on former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, in Germany.
Recall that Ekweremadu was attacked in Nuremberg, Germany by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The 2019 vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, in a statement through his spokesperson, Val Obienyem, stated that he has not spoken on the incident because of his characteristic calmness but has taken steps both in Nigeria and outside the country.
Obienyem dismissed the statement credited to his principal on the incident.
According to the statement, “the attention of the Vice-Presidential candidate of the PDP, Peter Obi has been drawn to a statement on the incident in Germany, purportedly made by him.
“As a matter of fact, Mr Peter Obi was neither in Lagos nor did he attend any PDP meeting in Lagos on Sunday, August 18, where he supposedly made the statement.
“We wish to place on record that Mr Peter Obi has not made any public statement on the matter. In his characteristic calmness, he has appropriately made calls both within and outside the country. I assure you that in the end, he is for what is best for the Igbos and the country.”
