Simon Ekpa Behind Killings In South-East – IPOB

In a statement on Friday, IPOB spokesmen, Emma Powerful alleged that Ekpa and his gang “Autopilots” were threatening South-East residents over non-compliance with the Monday sit-at-home order.

Powerful maintained that IPOB’s Monday sit-at-home order remained cancelled, adding that anybody still enforcing it was not its member and should be arrested.

The statement reads, “We the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to tell Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State that IPOB is not responsible for the criminality in Southeast, including Anambra State.

“The Governor should know that our enemies are committing atrocities using our name in their desperation to blackmail IPOB.

“It is a certain Simon Ekpa and his criminal gang called autopilots that are carrying out threats against people’s lives because of non-existent Monday sit-at-home are criminals, kidnappers and robbers.

“These people disturbing the peace of our people are not IPOB members. They should be treated as criminals. IPOB doesn’t shed blood. We are a peaceful movement.

“We wish to reiterate once again that IPOB has cancelled Monday sit-at-home order and anybody or group enforcing the relaxed order is neither from IPOB nor from IPOB volunteer group. Any governor in the region who deemed it fit to stop non-existent Monday sit-at-home order in the region is free to do so.

“Anyone caught adding to the pain of our people in the name of enforcing Monday sit-at-home order will be treated like the enemy that he or she is.

“Why should such unpatriotic elements be inflicting pain on our people and dragging our image to the mud? IPOB remains a non-violent movement and our peaceful approach for Biafra restoration has not changed.

“The only day sit-at-home will be observed in Biafraland is when our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is appearing in court, and we shall as usual make it public for all to know.

“We hereby direct community leaders, market leaders, church leaders, and other institutions of authority in Biafra land to arrest any hoodlum trying to enforce any sit-at-home on Mondays and hand them over to IPOB. Such criminal elements must be treated in a language they understand.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Charles Soludo had threatened to impose sanctions on any public servant in Anambra who fails to report to work on Mondays, like other weekdays.
