The former Senate President as well as the immediate past Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim has reacted to the publication made against him by SaharaReporters that he was under investigation as the major sponsor of the pro-Biafra protest going on in all the Southeastern State and Abuja recently.

Speaking through his Media Adviser, Sam Nwaobasi on Thursday December 3, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim who hails from Ishiagu in Ebonyi State denied allegations from SaharaReporters, an online media who he prefer to name as “detractors” stating that his Boss 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 or sense.
“We have resisted the temptation to join issues with these gangs of debased characters. However, there is a limit to what can be ignored”, Sam Nwaobasi said.

Gathering from what he said; “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 warned that those peddling such rumour or paid to ridicule him should stop it. He further called on Nigerians to ignore such a fatal lie targeted at soiling his reputation.

“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.

No doubt, this is not the first time SaharaReporters are coming up with such information very difficult to believe.
