NOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY GIST: Popular Veteran Actor cum Lawyer – Kenneth Okonkwo has debunked the speculations that he’s one of the defense counsel of IPOB Leader – Nnamdi Kanu, who has been on trial by the Nigerian Government.
Barrister Kenneth Okonkwo who was spotted in court on Tuesday November 8, during the trial of Nnamdi Kanu revealed that he believes in the Unity of Nigeria. He made this known on his Instagram page when he wrote:
“My attention has been drawn to some write ups insinuating that i am one of the defense counsel of Nnamdi Kanu of the IPOB fame. I state categorically that i am not one of the defense counsel. I had a different matter at the same court where he was arraigned and we met at the court by chance. Everybody recognised 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.” – KENNETH OKONKWO
The actor who celebrated his new age on November 6th also added:
“I believe in the peaceful resolution of the Biafian crisis through dialogue. We must recall that Dr Nnamdi Azikwe opted for one Nigeria because he believes that the arrangement will best suit our itinerant and commercial nature.”
What are your thoughts towards the creation of the Federal Republic of Biafra?
