Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, on Monday, called for the arrest and repatriation of Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa, the alleged mastermind of the ongoing horror being witnessed in Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo states, and many parts of Nigeria’s southeast region under the guise of a five-day sit-at-home (December 9 to 14).
In a statement signed by Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, sent to POLITICS NIGERIA, the association said it has commenced the process of making sure that those responsible for the pandemonium, destruction of public properties, killings, and civil unrest in the southeast face the consequences of their actions.
Ohanaeze’s statement reads: “Ndigbo has identified Simon Ekpa as the overseas provocateur and instigator for the current killings in Imo state, the destruction of public properties in Enugu State and disturbance of public peace and sporadic shootings in Ebonyi state.
“Ndigbo will liaise with relevant organizations, Finish Embassy in Nigeria, and Nigerians in Diaspora to seek ways to bring back Simon Ekpa to Nigeria to face prosecution and trials over the killings of south Easterners, burning of public properties and the disturbances of public peace” surprisingly, the so-called self-acclaimed Biafran agitator is championing the disruption of election processes in the southeast, with evil decrees against the collection of PVCs in the southeast, and institute an illegal but violent Sit at homes, to undermine the economy of Ndigbo in this festive seasons and stimulate violence, massacres, and chaos as Christmas gifts for Ndigbo
“Ndigbo calls for the immediate arrest, and repatriation of Simon Ekpa, to Nigeria.
“He’s a trickery man and criminal hiding behind Finish citizenship and Biafra agitation to wreak havoc, extort monies from Nigerians abroad, and influence the insecurity challenges against Ndigbo.
“This is the height of deception and treachery against Ndigbo, and the immediate arrest of Simon Ekpa will end up insecurity challenges in the east and serve as a deterrent to others, who might want to consider being a menace to the public, particularly to the people of the southeast”.
