The Ohanaeze Ndigbo globally has urged the people of the Southeast to disregard Simon Ekpa’s sit-at-home directive, issued by a self-proclaimed follower of Nnamdi Kanu.
It imposed a $50,000 bounty on Ekpa, who is headquartered in Finland.
Ekpa had proclaimed a sit-at-home day across the Southeast on Monday and Tuesday.
However, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, declared Ekpa to be the Igbo nation’s number one adversary, and thus the sit-in should be cancelled.
In a statement issued by Isiguzoro, Ohanaeze requested Southeast governors to declare Monday and Tuesday public holidays so that Southeast residents may obtain their Permanent Voters Cards, or PVCs.
He asked the Southeast Governors to follow the wisdom of the Abia State Government in declaring public holidays on the same days so that people may go out and acquire their PVCs before the deadline on January 29th, 2023.
“Ndigbo has set a $50,000 bounty for anyone with useful information on how Simon Ekpa will be apprehended for extradition and prosecution in Nigeria, to answer the law of the land for his criminalities, incitement of violent killings, and burning of public properties in the name of self-determination.”
Ohanaeze asked Igbos in Finland to report Ekpa to INTERPOL in order to assist in his arrest.
“Ndigbo should know that Simon Ekpa will never return to Southeast again in the future and Igbo residents in Finland who had earlier disowned his actions and activities should aid the Nigerian Government and INTERPOL to arrest Simon Ekpa in other to stabilise the southeast and rescue the zone from the nefarious activities of his gang members masquerading as biafra agitators, who are interested in killing people and burning the public buildings.
“The tasks to preserve and rescue the Southeast should begin with the help of all Igbos in the diaspora and at home, to assist in the arrest of the worsening security challenges, dwindling of the economic and social activities caused by Ekpa’s rantings and illegal sit-at-home.
“Ndigbo has declared Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa on this day 23rd of January 2023 as the number one adversary and enemy of Ndigbo, who Ndigbo had caught sight of in the last 200 years,” he added.
