It was reported that Audu’s poisoning was pre-planned in order to impose Tinubu’s loyalist, James Abiodun Faleke, who is running mate on Kogi.

But Okorocha in statement on Monday said he was presiding over the meeting of the South-East Governors’, Ohaneze leaders, traditional rulers and National Assembly members at Enugu state Government House, over the issues of pro-Biafra protests and agitations, when news of Audu’s death broke.

Okorocha, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said the report was totally false even on the face value.

He noted that the report was a wicked machination of people who are envious of his towering profile and aimed at bringing him at loggerheads with leaders of the party especially Tinubu.
