An attorney to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenious People of Biafra (IPOB)`, Vincent Obetta has confirmed reports that Kanu had apologized to president Muhammadu Buhari, former President Goodluck Jonathan and other Igbo leaders.

Following the report, Obetta has spoken up, declaring that it was impossible for Kanu to have tendered an apology, but has now confirmed to The Punch that Kanu had apologised while making confessional statements to the DSS, adding that there was nothing irregular with the apology.

Obetta said:

“I denied the ruse making the rounds that my client apologised via a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, former President Goodluck Jonathan and some Igbo elders.

“I also challenged any reporter to forward to me a copy of the written letter addressed to the President et al. I still maintain my ground that my client Mazi Nnamdi Kanu did not address any letter of apology whatsoever to Buhari, Jonathan and Igbo elders.

“However, I am aware that in the course of making his statements to the SSS (DSS), he acknowledged the fact that certain words he used on these persons/elders during his broadcast were ‘uncomplimentary’ considering the culture and values of the African society to which he belongs.

“He further stated that he might write a letter of apology to the President to express his regret over the use of such words on him. But up until this moment, such letter, to my knowledge, has not been written. And I challenge anybody that has a copy of such to make it public.”
