An Igbo chieftain of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro has submitted that despite the plot by the leader of Autopilot wing of IPOB, Simon Ekpa will drag Ndigbo Into another civil war if care is not taken, stating that such plot will be resisted by Ndigbo.
In a statement signed by Mazi Isiguzoro and sent to The Eastern Updates, he said that Ndigbo views with great distaste and condemnation the purported declaration by Ekpa, leader of Ekpa Squad (Autopilots) of himself as ‘Biafran Prime Minister in Exile’.
‘Indeed, this latest episode in orchestrated attempts by the Finland-based Igbo enemy, who has made himself a ready tool in the destruction of Ala-Igbo can only be blamed on his deliberate pampering by the Finnish and Nigerian governments,” he stated.
Isiguzoro said that there are detailed reports of heightened terrorism from his Finnish base, including reports from a Finnish journalist, who was in Enugu this February to personally interview families of victims of his terror attacks, which he boldly affirmed on Finnish television was presented to the Finnish government.
According to him, ‘Ndigbo has rebutted and renounced in strong terms the formation of a purported Biafra Government in Exile, by Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa, who is seen as the greatest enemy of Ndigbo in the last 200 years and one of the most dangerous terrorists in Africa and operating from Finland.
‘He said that if the Nigerian government fails to check this ugly development, Ekpa’s game-plan is to plunge Nigeria into another undeserved Civil War.
‘Ndigbo is now given a standing order to capture Ekpa dead or alive, he must not be allowed to escape justice as the leader of the most dreadful killer squad in the Southeast whose sole aim is to destabilize the Southeast with his satanic agenda of leading another Civil War against Nigeria.
‘For the avoidance of doubt, Ndigbo can never be pushed into fighting another war, regardless of the provocations of Ekpa and his paymasters who surprisingly are hurt by the ongoing fraternity existing between Ndigbo and their Yoruba siblings and are hell-bent on thwarting it.
‘From declaring a five-day sit-at-home in the South-East during the presidential election to the declaration of Sit-at-home in Lagos, Ekpa has only one agenda- the destruction of Ala-Igbo, to fulfill his paymaster’s political ambitions.
‘Indeed, his latest drama is aimed at distracting the Labour Party (LP), presidential candidate from the pursuit of his Pan-Nigerian mandate at the election tribunal by questioning his belief in Nigeria when his people are pressing on with Biafra and now have a “Prime Minister in exile
