Simon Ekpa, a Biafra agitator and separatist, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration that only the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, will put a stop to the southeast’s sit-at-home order.
Ekpa, the Finland-based lawyer and self-proclaimed Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, made the announcement to DAILY POST on Wednesday.
Remember that Ekpa proclaimed a week of civil disobedience in the southeast to demand Nnamdi Kanu’s release.
Since Kanu’s re-arrest in June 2021, sit-at-home protests have been observed in the southeast.
Ekpa emphasized that the region’s sit-in will stop with Kanu’s release.
He stated that a self-referendum would restore long-term peace and economic stability to the region.
“Our message to the Nigerian government is to release MNK immediately, or we will add another stringent measure to civil disobedience, this time to halt oil exploitation on Biafra soil,” he stated.
“We are also officially notifying the Nigerian government of our preparations for the Self-Referendum and calling on the government to support the self-referendum, which is the true democratic process to restore peace and stability in the region,” the statement said.
He stated this.
