Detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has issued a hand-written order to Simon Ekpa, the Finland-based leader of the “Auto pilot” and engineer of the ongoing sit-at-home protests in the South East region of Nigeria. Kanu’s special counsel, Alloy Ejimako, made the order public during a press conference in Enugu on Friday.
In the directive, Kanu instructed Ekpa to immediately cease the enforcement of sit-at-home orders that have been causing disruptions in the South East. He also advised Ekpa to refrain from antagonizing political figures and governors, asserting that he is not in a position to fully understand their actions on his behalf.
Kanu emphasized that the movement of IPOB aims to liberate the people, not subject them to unnecessary hardships. He expressed his disapproval of anyone using the sit-at-home orders to inflict harm on the populace and stated that he is not seeking release from detention, but rather urging Nigeria to adhere to its own laws.
According to Ejimako, Kanu personally handed him the order for Ekpa during a visit to the Department of State Security (DSS) headquarters in Abuja on July 24, 2023. Ejimako then conveyed the message to Ekpa, who acknowledged receipt but has not implemented the directive on his media platform.
Since Ekpa has not carried out the order, Kanu issued further instructions to Ejimako to make the order public through a press statement. Ejimako, bound by his duty as counsel, faithfully complied with Kanu’s instructions and publicly disclosed the contents of the hand-written directive.
In conclusion, Ejimako affirmed that the words and handwriting in the order are indeed those of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained IPOB leader.
