In a statement issued by IPOB’s lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on Monday, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, accused the Nigerian government of funding Simon Ekpa to create unrest in the South-East. Kanu also warned that anyone still adhering to the sit-at-home order was unknowingly aiding the Nigerian government’s efforts to disrupt the peace in the region.
During a visit to Kanu at the SSS Headquarters in Abuja, Ejiofor briefed him on the recent developments regarding his written order to call off the sit-at-home protest. Kanu emphasized that those who continued to observe the unauthorized directive were unwittingly working for the Nigerian government, contributing to the destruction of the once peaceful land.
Kanu specifically pointed out that Simon Ekpa was allegedly being procured and financially supported by the Nigerian government to create unrest in the region. He expressed concern about the economic hardship and violent crimes prevalent in the area, emphasizing that they were unrelated to their aspiration for freedom.
Kanu directed the people to compare the activities of genuine freedom fighters worldwide and identify if any of them adopted a strategy involving inflicting economic hardship and terror on their own people. He expressed that such evil activities, including kidnapping and killings, were not connected to legitimate freedom fighting but rather were the work of criminal elements in the region.
The statement further mentioned that Kanu had provided undisclosed far-reaching directives on how to address the activities of Simon Ekpa and his criminal cohorts, but those details would remain private.
