“Photographers were taking their shots without anybody being conscious of any attendant mischief, since the political leaders were all there, for Hon. Uju mother’s burial. lt was not a political rally.

“Those behind this false story deliberately failed or refused to mention the venue and title of the event where the photographs were taken.

“They could not also quote a portion of Okorocha’s speech since he is not a dumb man and must have made a speech at the event.

“We are at ease to say that Okorocha has not joined the PDP.

“He is still a member of the APC. Burial ceremony could not have become political declaration rally.”
