Ekpa’s approach to agitation for Biafra clearly gives him out as a paid agent – Kanu
Emmanuel Kanu, younger brother of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has accused Simon Ekpa of behaving like a paid agent.
Mr Ekpa, a self-acclaimed IPOB leader who is reportedly based in Finland, declared a five-day sit-at-home in the southeast from December 9 to 14.
His declaration caused a commotion in the region and resulted in the death of several persons including the brother of actor Osita Iheme.
Condemning the order, Kanu said, “Whatever has happened was completely wrong. There was no order issued by the leader of IPOB.”
Kanu said that Ekpa’s activities and approach to agitation for Biafra had clearly given him out as a paid agent.
“It beats my imagination that somebody who claims to be fighting for the cause of Ndigbo will at the same time be engaging in activities injurious to the same people,” he said.
Ekpa, he further stated, could not claim to be championing the Biafra cause, when in fact, he was making life painful and miserable for the people.
“There is no doubt he is working for some people because no true-blooded Igbo will do something to jeopardise the lives of Igbo people. The leader has always said that he cannot take a life because he doesn’t give life. So, why will people take other people’s lives?
“Why will you kill the same people you say you are fighting to protect? It doesn’t make sense. It is just obvious that Ekpa is working for some people to destroy what the leader has built over the years.
“Why would he give a sit-at-home order? Under whose authority will he do that? My brother (Nnamdi Kanu) told me clearly that he did not authorise any person or group to order for sit-at-home. So, why do that? Who is he doing it to impress? It is only a paid agent that will behave the way he does,” Kanu said.
