Simon Ekpa, the self-acclaimed disciple of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday announced a two-day sit-at-home in Southeast Nigeria.
Gists9ja reports that Ekpa in an update posted on Twitter said the fresh sit-at-home is to ensure the release of Kanu.
If Nnamdi Kanu is not released unconditionally from DSS dungeon and for medical attention for his failing heart by January 22, 2023, there will be sit-at-home in Biafraland on Monday January 23 and Tuesday January 24, 2023,” Ekpa’s statement reads.
Recall that last month, Ekpa’s five-day sit-at-home exercise turned bloody as locals were murdered by gunmen enforcing the order.
The Diaspora-based factional separatist leader and his supporters are insisting that there will be no election in southeast Nigeria in February and March.
