President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, on Tuesday described as “wicked” the news circulating in the social media that he was involved in a fatal motor accident and fractured his arm.

“The mischievous character circulating the news even went ahead to post the picture of the vehicle he was said to be traveling on when he had the accident.

“As a result of this wicked act, my mobile phones have been inundated with calls from concerned persons wanting to sympathise with him,” Nwodo said in a statement.

He said that the victim showed at the accident scene couldn’t have been him since he did not travel.

“I am yet to make out what the intention of the person or group circulating the news are, who wishes me dead when they are not the owner of my life,” he said.

The Ohanaeze President General while urging the public “to discountenance the dangerous news”, thanked “all the concerned persons, including governors and traditional rulers” who reached him to confirm the fake news.

“I am hale and hearty enjoying the mercy and grace of my creator,” he said, adding: “Social media has a lot of positives, which the people should highlight rather than always going for the negative. Every freedom has a responsibility attached to it.”

Nwodo warned social media practitioners to be careful and be professional in carrying out their responsibilities and eschew all forms of character assassination.
