…Asks People To Ignore Further Sit-At-Home Order
The factional separatist leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Simon Ekpa has called for the cancellation of the sit-at-home order his group had been enforcing since August 2021.
This was even as he told people to ignore further notices and directives of sit-at-home orders, saying he was under the influence of spell and pressure to continue the enforcement of the heinous order.
Ekpa, born in Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, in 1985, blamed “agents of darkness and anti-Igbo forces” for sponsoring continuous sit-at-home in the Southeast, maintaining that nobody was happy for the devastating act.
While urging his supporters to ignore further instructions of sit-at-home order even though such is coming from his broadcast, stated that he was only saying that to please his sponsors.
He further distanced Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB, from the sit-at-home order, killings, and attacks on the people, stressing that some powerful forces who did not want to progress and development of the zone were responsible.
“I, Simon Ekpa, make and declare that sit-at-home order in Enugu State should immediately come to an end. This is an immediate directive from our Supreme Leader. I hereby dispatch an order ending the sit-at-home order because Caliphate and their Janjaweed conspirators are hijacking it to achieve their selfish ends.
“Anybody found enforcing sit-at-home order in any guise and circumstance should be mobbed as criminal and traitor of Ndi Igbo. I repeat; ignore any message from anywhere or from here calling for sit-at-home,” Ekpa added
