I didn’t ask DSS to starve Nnamdi Kanu during my visit says Orji Kalu


Orji Uzor Kalu, the Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, has come out to debunk a purported statement linked to him and circulated on social media alleging that he told the Department of State Service (DSS) to starve the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu is currently detained on the order of Justice Binta Murtala Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja on treasonable felony charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.

The IPOB leader also claimed that Nigeria’s secret police had denied him his medical report after taking his blood more than 21 times.

He spoke through his younger brother, Prince Kanu Meme, who was on a routine visit to the detained separatist leader.

However, the former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Kalu, in a statement made available to Leakblast on Tuesday, described the purported statement linked to him as big fat lies and cheap propaganda to score selfish political points.

According to him, “the circulating lie says, ‘when Senator Orji Uzor Kalu visited DSS and Nnamdi Kanu has been living without food since then’.

“My brief take is that there is nothing one would do that people won’t talk about. If you don’t visit, they will still blame you. But more sympathetic to me is those that believe and propagate any cock and bull story.

“If the agenda is to create hatred between me and my brothers, it’s a waste of time because my people love me and I love them too. I will always respond to hate with love”.
