Powerful wondered why Ekpa would declare himself Prime Minister of Biafra while Kanu, whom he claims is his leader, is languishing in detention.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said all Biafrans should listen to its leader Nnamdi Kanu on the order to stop sit-at-home in the Southeast.
This is as the group enjoined the people of Southeast Nigeria to stop listening to Finland-based Biafra agitator Simon Ekpa.
Emma Powerful, the spokesman for IPOB, said in a statement: “Every Biafran must understand the importance of this letter. If you are a lover of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, you must listen to him.”
Powerful, who wondered why Ekpa would declare himself Prime Minister of Biafra while Kanu, whom he claims is his leader, is languishing in detention, charged Igbos to stop “giving credence to the enemy of Ndigbo and Biafrans claiming to be Kanu’s disciple.”
He said: “Perhaps when Mazi comes out, he will become the fake disciple’s deputy or personal assistant. Every Biafran must stop observing any sit-at-home order from the infiltrators.”
The IPOB spokesman further noted: “The reckless enforcement and abuse of sit-at-homes is an opportunity for criminals to kidnap, murder, maim, and snatch cars from innocent citizens.
“This government-sponsored criminality and violent enforcement of sit-at-home have endangered the lives of our people through the invasion of murderous and overzealous Nigerian security agents.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has sent messages through his visitors at DSS dungeon to the infiltrators to stop the reckless sit-at-home several times, all to no avail.”
