“The National President also commended the efforts of the leadership of the pan Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, for their collaborative efforts on the matter.
“However, the National President has debunked the earlier statement credited to him on the arrest of the veteran actor as he has not made any official public or private statement on the matter since his arrest yesterday. The public is hereby advised to disregard the report which trended on social media on the matter.”
