Pius Anyim Condemns IPOB Biafra Protest
Immediate past Secretary to the
Government of the Federation, Sen. Anyim Pius
Anyim has denied sponsoring the ongoing pro-
Biafra protests, saying any assertion to the
contrary is the handiwork of detractors.
Anyim, a former Senate President who spoke
through his Media Adviser, Sam Nwaobasi
Thursday, added that he is neither under house
arrest nor any form of investigation.
“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
rumours on phantom issues that make no meaning
“We have resisted the temptation to join issues
with these gangs of debased characters. However,
there is a limit to what can be ignored”,
According to him, “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”.
He added that Sen. Anyim is not under any
investigation for any such allegation, 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”, he added.
