Nollywood actor and lawyer Kenneth Okonkwo has debunked report that he is the defence counsel to IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu. In a statement he released few hours ago, the actor said he only happened to be in the same court where the Biafran leader was arraigned, but that he came there for a different case. Read his statement below;
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. 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.
