Biafra agitator and self-acclaimed Nnamdi Kanu disciple, Simon Ekpa explained why a sit-at-home in the southeast is what was needed to demand the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Ekpa, the Finland-based lawyer and Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, disclosed this on Friday through his official Twitter handle.
Recall that Ekpa had announced a weeklong sit-at-home from July 3 to 10, 2023.
Ekpa stressed that the sit-at-home was necessary for the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu and in preparation for Biafra’s referendum.
Ekpa urged Igbos to disregard reports from unknown IPOB agents against the Biafra referendum.
‘Our attention has been drawn to news circulating on social media that IPOB denies declaring to sit at home.
‘We want to clarify that the sit-at-home from July 3rd to July 10th has come to stay. Biafra land will be on lockdown.
‘We challenge those parading themselves as IPOB to show their identity, pictures, and profile and let Biafrans know who they are,’ he wrote.
Earlier in the week, The Eastern Updates had reported that Emma Powerful who is the spokesperson of the IPOB, maitained that the sit-at-home order did not emanate from the group.
‘IPOB did not declare the infamous sit-at-home. Those doing that (declaring the sit-at-home) are criminals who want to use Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s name and IPOB to perpetrate criminalities in the South-eastern states, but it won’t work for them.
‘They want Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to remain in the SSS solitary confinement’, he said.
Recall that the secessionist group had earlier in the week come down hard on a former militant leader, Asari Dokubo, over his recent comments about the group and its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
