Nollywood Actor, Kenneth Okonkwo is now under fire following his comment that he believes in One Nigeria and does not support the call for Biafra restoration.
Actor, Kenneth Okonkwo
Okonkwo who is a Lawyer by Profession, had earlier last week appeared in Abuja High Court, same day Nnamdi Kanu the Indigenous People of Biafra Leader was arraigned by the Federal Government.

Following his appearance, Biafra agitators took to the social media to celebrate Okonkwo's appearance, thinking he came to the court as Defence Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu.


Reacting over the insinuation, Mr. Okonkwo denied the rumour, but his denial comes with a statement where he said he does support Biafra agitation, that he only believes in one Nigeria.


Okonkwo said; “My attention has been drawn to some write ups insinuating that I am one of the Defence Counsel of Nnamdi Kanu of the IPOB fame. I state categorically that I am not one of the Defence Counsel.

“I had a different matter at the same court where he was arraigned and we met at the Court by chance. Everybody recognized my presence and in my usual fashion, I greeted everyone.”

“I believe in the unity of Nigeria and believe that the destiny of Ndigbo will be better served within a Nigeria based on equity and justice. God bless Ndigbo and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.


“I believe in the peaceful resolution of the Biafran crisis through dialogue. We must recall that Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe opted for one Nigeria because he believed that the arrangement will best suit our itinerant and commercial nature,” Okonkwo had said.

But,  Biafrans seems to be uncomfortable with such statement, the fact that Mr. Okonkwo is a true born son of the South East, and they believed that he should also be proud of Biafra.

Nevertheless, this is what has been going on in social media, Okonkwo has been under fire by Biafrans.
