Following the bloodshed and several ruins which the pro-Biafra protest has caused in Onitsha lately, a top Nigerian politician from the south east has decided to beg Biafra agitators to count him out of the entire protest as he was said to be the patron of the agitators.

Immediate past Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim while speaking through his Media Adviser, Sam Nwaobasi on Thursday, openly denied any involvement in the race to own a separate State called Biafra. He stated that he is not part of the ongoing pro-Biafra protests and will never in future be part of it. He also laid to rest the speculation which says that he is among those footing the bills of the said agitators. After he clarified his position in the ongoing agitation, he further stated that any statement or claim that is in contrast with what he has said is surely the work of detractors and as such should be ignored.
The Media Adviser of the preceding Senate President, Sam Nwaobasi also announced that he is neither under house arrest nor any form of investigation.
According to the statement released by Sam:
We find it despicable that some people have taken it upon themselves to disparage, embarrass, ridicule, insult and indeed incite the public against Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim, since he left office as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, through publication of bare-faced lies, fabrication of baseless stories and peddling of rumors on phantom issues that make no meaning or sense.
“We have resisted the temptation to join issues with these gangs of debased characters. However, there is a limit to what can be ignored.
“Sen. Anyim is not sponsoring, has not sponsored and will never sponsor any protest by any group against the Government or our dear country Nigeria.
“Sen. Anyim is not under any investigation for any such allegation, he is warning those behind what he described as dastardly and mischievous acts to stop forthwith.
They must bear in mind that those who rise up against an innocent person are only setting themselves up for a fatal fall.”
This is against the earlier report of an online media portal which stated that Anyim is currently under investigation for financing the activities of Radio Biafra and also pro-Biafra protests. The online portal also stated that the preceding SGF has been accused of pocketing enormous sums from Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC treasure chest while in office, which he now reportedly uses in putting up money for the pro-Biafra protest.
