Okorocha denies accusing Tinubu of killing Audu

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has denied a statement credited to him in the social media (Facebook) report with the caption: “Tinubu, others, kill Kogi Guber candidate – Okorocha”.
The report was published on Sunday evening, few hours after the news of the death of Prince Abubakar Audu.
A statement issued in Owerri, yesterday, by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwiemeodo, said that the author failed to mention or tell his audience whether Governor Okorocha had made that claim at a press conference or in a press release.
Describing the report as totally false, he said that it could not pass any test of logic.
The statement added that Governor Okorocha neither dragged his sentences nor spoke disjointed grammar, noting that on the day (Sunday) Prince Audu was reported to have died, the governor was presiding over the meeting of the South-East Governors’ with Ohaneze leaders, traditional rulers and National Assembly members at Enugu State Government House on the issue of pro-Biafra protests and agitations.
He said: “I am not quarrelling with Senator Tinubu. The envisaged rift between us only exists in the imaginations of those who have chosen the path of dishonor, because only dishonourable people could have authored such an inglorious write-up. Decent people do not do such”.
The governor, on behalf of his family and the people of Imo State, extended condolences to President President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, people of Kogi State and those left behind by late Audu.
