- Claims that Orji Uzor Kalu is working with the DSS against the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu has been debunked
- The rumours were that Kalu had instructed the security officials not to give food to the embattled southeast secessionist
- However, in a rebuttal on Monday, December 6, the former Abia governor referred to the allegation as a lie
The chief whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has reacted to claims that he told the Department of State Service (DSS) not to feed the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kalu.
Senator Kalu via his Facebook page on Monday, December 6, stated that this is nothing but "a big, fat lie" and, therefore, called on Nigerians to ignore it.
The former Abia governor explained that his detractors will not hesitate to use any of his actions against him.

He mentioned further that his sympathy goes to those who believe and spread such false reports generated by liars.
Kalu added by saying that any attempt made to pitch him against his kinsmen will always fail and that he will not cease to respond to hate with love.
"A friend said the statement below is been circulated on social media and I urge you to please ignore as it's a big fat lie and cheap propaganda.
"The circulating lie says, "When Senator Orji Uzor Kalu visited DSS and Mazi Nnamdi, he told the DSS to stop giving Nnamdi Kanu food and Nnamdi Kanu has been living without food since then "
"My brief take is that there is nothing one would do that people won't talk about. If you don't visit, they will blame you for not visiting.
"If you visit, they will still blame you. But more sympathetic to me is those that believe and propagate any cok and bull story. If the agenda is to create hatred between me and my brothers, it's a waste of time because my people love me and I love them too. I will always respond to hate with love."
