Recall that Legit.ng previously reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) accused the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, of sponsoring the Biafra agitation led by Nnamdi Kanu.

The party said Fayose did not only visit Kanu in court, but also promised to meet with the deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, to solicit fund for Kanu.

In a statement signed by the publicity secretary of APC, Ekiti chapter, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party said Fayose was behind any activities that would bring the Nigerian government down, including accusing the government of ethnic cleansing in the southeast.
