The veteran actor who is also a legal practitioner and was recently spotted in court in his lawyer garb during the hearing of Kanu’s case, disclosed that his presence in court during Kanu’s hearing was merely coincidental, and nothing more.

“My attention has been drawn to some write ups insinuating that I am one of the Defence Counsel of Nnamdi Kanu of the IPOB fame. I state categorically that I am not one of the Defence Counsel.

“I had a different matter at the same court where he was arraigned and we met at the Court by chance. Everybody recognized my presence and in my usual fashion, I greeted everyone.”

The actor further expressed his standpoint on the Biafra agitation while noting that he believes in a united Nigeria, adding that the agitation can be resolved through dialogue and added that the destiny of Ndigbo is in Nigeria.

“I believe in the unity of Nigeria and believe that the destiny of Ndigbo will be better served within a Nigeria based on equity and justice. God bless Ndigbo and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“I believe in the peaceful resolution of the Biafran crisis through dialogue. We must recall that Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe opted for one Nigeria because he believed that the arrangement will best suit our itinerant and commercial nature.”

He wrote further; “I believe in the peaceful resolution of the Biafran crisis through dialogue. We must recall that Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe opted for one Nigeria because he believed that the arrangement will best suit our itinerant and commercial nature.”
