“What we told him is that at the appropriate time we will make our stand known, that we are fearless and will make our choice known to the Itsekiri people. I never at any time said that what he did at the Delta State Oil-Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, was unsurpassed and that no Itsekiri man had even done that, I never said so.

“I did not say that his houses in Sapele and Warri have become Mecca, even if people go there I am not aware. As the Chairman of ILoT, I have received calls from many people wanting to know what I said, I never said those things attributed to me,” he added.
