The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has vowed to expose the secrets of a self-acclaimed disciple of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, Simon Ekpa, stating that the Finland-based secessionist agitator is not its member.
The Kanu-led group denied Ekpa against the violence and sit-at-home declarations across the South-East, with its Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, stating that the he is now enemy of the group and the people of the region.
Powerful said in the statement that because of the destruction of lives and properties in the South-East, “IPOB will stop at nothing from exposing Simon Ekpa. We must expose him for clarity’s sake, and nobody should link him with IPOB. He is not our member and can never be an IPOB member.”
The statement titled “MAY THE SPONSORS AND SECRET LOVERS OF SIMON EKPERIMA IFEANYI NJOKU SHOW THEMSELVES THE FAVOUR OF APPEARING IN COURT WITH HIM INSTEAD OF MAKING DEROGATORY REMARKS- IPOB,” said “one of the sponsors of terrorism in the North, Alhaji Adamu Garba to stop talking rubbish against our amiable Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor over his precise move to expose Simon Ekperima Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa for the insecurity he has caused in Igboland.
“The attitude and remarks of Adamu Garba shows that he is one of those who contracted Ekperima to destabilize the South East Region, especially Igboland. But they have failed because our people and IPOB worldwide have shown them that they don’t follow Nigeria contracted agents. WE ARE IPOB!
“All of a sudden, the enemies of Mazi Nnamdi KANU and the enemies of IPOB have sneaked out of their cranes to make derogatory remarks on the lawsuit against the Nigerian agent, Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa and his gangs. Where were these wicked souls all these while when Simon Ekperima was using every means possible to blackmail IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, and Barrister Ejiofor?
“Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor is IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi KANU’s lawyer. He is not an IPOB member. Therefore, he has the legal right as a lawyer to defend whatever can bring damage to the IPOB movement. Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor knew very well that IPOB did not issue the 5-day sit-at-home order that was used to destroy the lives and properties of Biafrans and lovers of freedom across the South East Region this month.
“BARRISTER IFEANYI EJIOFOR has the backing of IPOB to protect their interests and their rights. He did what is necessary as a person who has been defamed several times and also as IPOB legal counsel to protect the hard earned image of the Movement than watch the sponsored criminals destroy Igboland in the name of IPOB. Time is coming for Ndigbo both home and in diaspora to show Ifeanyi Njoku “aka” Simon Ekpa and his sponsors what Ndigbos are made of.
“We advise Adamu Garba and other secret supporters of Simon Ekpa to sit back and watch the movie that is about to unfold. We thank God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama that Simon Ekpa used this recent sit at home order to understand that Ndigbo don’t follow men of perverse spirit like him. It gave Ndigbo and entire Biafrans an opportunity to know that Simon Ekpa is not an IPOB member and will never be.
“Let it be known that IPOB did not take Simon Ekpa, Ifeanyi Njoku to court just for damages, but IPOB has a duty to expose him so people will know him for who he truly is, a saboteur (modern time Ifeajuna).
“We knew justice may not come from a Nigerian court because the government is the one sponsoring him to blackmail IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU, but in the end the names of Barrister Ejiofor and IPOB will never be associated with the activities of a sponsored criminal, Ekperima and his gangs.
“IPOB will stop at nothing from exposing Simon Ekpa. We must expose him for clarity sake, and nobody should link him with IPOB. He is not our member and can never be IPOB member.
“We can only advise Adamu Garba and other sponsors of Simon Ekpa, the criminal, to prepare to meet Barrister Ejiofor in court. No amount of negative or hypocritic comment can distract us from our mission of restoring Biafra.”
