Sir Dr Emeka Offor.

The Chairman Chrome Group, Sir Emeka Offor has completely denied being a party  to the arrest and repatriation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ebuka Onochie Obi who is the Media Aide to Sir Emeka Offor made the disclosure in a statement made available to the NATIONAL PANEL in Abakaliki.

The statement hinted that, Sir Offor rarely meddle into trivialities let alone ganging up against his kinsman, Nnamdi Kanu.

It was gathered that there have been indictment of some Igbo leaders by the Indigenous People of Biafra which Sir Emeka Offor was accused of facilitating  the arrest and repatriation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government.

However, Sir Offor has called on the general public especially the Igbo leaders to ignore such allegation saying it is solitarily sewn to cause disaffection and put him against his Igbo brothers.

"It is common knowledge that Sir Dr Emeka Offor seldom grants interviews or engage in media/press statements except when issues dealing with the activities of his charitable and non-governmental Foundation – Sir Emeka Offor Foundation (SEOF) are involved. 

"However, it has become necessary in the present circumstances to state categorically that there is absolutely no truth in these allegations made and perpetuated by uninformed mischief makers whose only desire is to malign and bring Sir Dr Emeka to disrepute.

"For the records, Sir Emeka Offor Foundation has been engaged in helping people in need become independent and self-sufficient. Since the onset of the global pandemic which has laid waste the financial aspirations of individuals, Organisations and countries, SEOF has made significant and unparalleled interventions in the health and educational sectors of our economy.

"In the last 18 months, SEOF has donated 1. 14 units of 40 feet container-load of Medical Equipment and Supplies to Tertiary Medical Institutions in Nigeria.

"Built and commissioned Sir (Dr.) Emeka Offor Rotary Hall in the Rotary International District 9125 Centre Abuja, shortly after making commendable interventions that led to the WHO Certification of Nigeria and indeed Africa as free from Wild Polio-Virus, distributed books, computers, educational equipment/materials and accessories to over 80 universities, 22 Polytechnics, 37 Colleges of Education, 180 Primary and Secondary Schools and 7 Public Libraries across the 6 Geopolitical Zones of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, and continuous support to the widows Cooperative Group in Anambra State.

"The foregoing represents the issues that are very important to Sir Dr Emeka Offor. It is on these matters and his Business that he continues to focus his full attention," the statement read in parts.

It pin-pointed the need for people to exercise caution by stop bringing personalities with proven track records of integrity and humanitarian traits into public ridicule and opprobrium, following the prevailing allegations against him, which he described as a complete falsehood.
