Onitsha Traditional Council has refuted a report suggesting the Obi of Onitsha, Nnaemeka Achebe, issued a statement, titled: ‘How Phone Call Saved Me From Boarding Attacked Train’.

The clarification followed the deadly March 28, 2022 attack by bandits on an Abuja-Kaduna bound train.

According to a statement signed by Chief of Staff, Chinyelugo Osita Anionwu, “His Majesty never made such a statement to anyone at anytime.”

The statement reads in part: “The entire country is in dire straights on internal security and anyone could be victim in the situation we currently face, for instance, the unfortunate victims of the train attack. Thus, it is absolutely callous for anyone to use such a distressful national tragedy to grab fake media attention.

“People who know His Majesty would attest that he does his utmost, as a royal father, to advance the cause of peace, harmony and progress in the entire country in a quiet and unobtrusive manner, and away from the public glare of the media. All His Majesty’s communication devices have since been inundated with calls and messages. This message is, therefore, being issued to put everyone’s mind at rest that His Majesty was not near danger whatsoever on March 28, 2022.”
