The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has dragged Nigerian government for sponsoring Simon Ekpa to cause unrest in the South-East region of the country.
The IPOB leader cited that anyone observing the sit-at-home order was working for the Nigerian Government to ”destroy our once peaceful land.”
This is contained in a statement issued by IPOB’s lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on Monday, which was sent to WAKADAILY.
The letter read: “We visited our indefatigable and formidable Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, today, being the 31st Day of July 2023, at the SSS Headquarters, Abuja, where he is still being illegally and unconstitutionally held in solitary confinement.
Today’s visit was to brief Onyendu on pertinent developments concerning his specific written order calling off the senseless sit-at-home, hitherto being enforced by enemies of our people.
“Onyendu used the opportunity provided by the visit, to remind our people and all Ezigbo Umuchineke to note that whoever still goes about to observe any unauthorized sit-at-home directive, should know that he or she is working for the Nigerian Government to destroy our once peaceful land.
Mazi Kanu stressed that the economic hardship and violent crimes in the South-East were uncalled for.
“Onyendu directed our people to check records of freedom fighters across the world and tell or identify anybody, if any, whose style of liberating his or her people, is to impose economic hardship and unimaginable terror on the same people.
“Onyendu observed that the evil activities of these marauders, which have no connection with freedom fighting, also extend to the perpetration of all forms of violent crimes in our region, which include but are not limited to kidnapping and killings.
“Other far-reaching directives Onyendu handed down today on how to nip the activities of Ekpa and his criminal cohorts in the bud, shall remain private.”
