Biafra: Okorocha Arrested My Son Over Song Dedicated to Nnamdi Kanu ~ Dansatch
|Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha|
Speaking to Daily Sun, Dansatch revealed that the men believed to be sent by Okorocha was first attempted to arrest his son while he (the son) was rehearsing near his house. But the moves by the suspected security operatives were resisted, because according to him, he saw nothing wrong in any musician singing about anybody. He added
“I told those who came to stop my son that in Oriental Brothers Band, we do not sing 419 music and that there was nothing wrong if my son who has taken over from where I stopped decides to sing about Biafra and its leader.
“We all are Biafrans including my son. In fact, during the war, I fought on the Biafra side and I’m still all out for Biafra. Therefore, it is silly for anybody to arrest Chidi for singing about Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu”.
According to Dansatch, “when I thought that everything was over, on Tuesday, when my son went to a recording studio at Nekede to put finishing touches to his new album, some policemen and members of the Network Security sent by Okorocha went there, arrested and detained him for three days. If my son had sung to praise President Muhammadu Buhari or Okorocha himself, they could have given him an award. But now that he sang to praise the IPOB leader, he has committed an offence,” Dansatch noted.
Meanwhile, the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Okorocha, Sam Onwuemeodo, denied the allegation, saying the music maestro did not know what he was talking about.
“Gov. Okorocha is too busy and sophisticated to be interested in what music anybody is producing. He will in all honesty like to listen to such music if it’s worth his attention,” he said.
