- Nnamdi Kanu’s brother, Emmanuel, has debunked a report that linked him to monkeypox virus hoax in the southeast
- An Igbo group, INM had accused Emmanuel Kanu of being behind the monkeypox virus rumours in the region
- But Kanu insisted that the group’s president is neither an Igbo man nor a Biafra person
Emmanuel Kanu, a young brother to the leader of Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has denied a report that accused him of being behind the recent monkeypox vaccine hoax in the southeast region of the country.
In a statement sent to NAIJ.com, Emmanuel Kanu described the group as faceless, adding that the leader of the group was blind to the activities of IPOB.
He said: “Does it mean out of desperation faceless groups emerge everyday just for the sake of making headline on hard copy and social media. Obviously, whoever claims to be the president is apparently not an Igbo or Biafra person and at such remains very blind to the activities of IPOB. I don't know anything INM and where they exist from.
“Obviously that name sounds more like a brown envelope name. If INM wants to engage me, they should do so through appropriate channels. And I don't go by the name Emma Powerful. Emma Powerful remains one and only IPOB spokesperson while I am Prince Emmanuel kanu.
