Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has denied media reports claiming that he called for the re-arrest and imprisonment of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement on Saturday signed by his Chief Press Secretary, John Okiyi Kalu, the governor warned those propagating the fake reports to desist from such actions.
He, however, vowed to take legal action against those behind the manufacturing and circulation of the fake piece of information.
The governor also called on members of the public to ignore the information, insisting that the governor has not granted an interview to anyone.
He said: “Governor Ikpeazu returned to the state yesterday after a successful investment trip abroad, as announced.
“He did not grant any interview to anybody anywhere on the subject matter.
“We are set to take legal actions against those we have identified to be involved in publishing and sharing fake news against the Governor and Abia State.”
