IPOB Denies Simon Ekpa’s Membership and Leadership; Urges Supreme Court Justice to Resist Army’s Intimidation


November 24, 2023

The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the Supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU wishes to debunk the fallacious statement credited to the Army Chief of Staff that Simon Ekpa is the leader of IPOB. Nigeria Army Chief is very aware that IPOB has disassociated herself from the criminal activities of Simon Ekpa and his auto bandit gangs. Nigeria Army, DSS, Police, and Simon Ekpa are all in collusion to blackmail Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. IPOB and ESN have no other leader except our supreme leader, Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU.

The Nigeria Army's latest media outburst that Simon Ekpa is an IPOB leader is nothing other than blackmail towards the upcoming judgment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's Supreme Court case. Moreover, the linking of Simon Ekpa to IPOB leadership and his recent tweet where he threatened to start violent evacuation of the Nigerian military in the southeast is part of their collective plans to renew violence in the Southeast. Both Nigeria Security Forces and Simon Ekpa have the same objectives.

The first is to renew violence, killings, and destruction of properties in the Southeast that hs been quiet for some time now.

Secondly, it is to use their renewed violent activities as evidence to bias the minds of the Supreme Court Justices not to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on the 15th of December based on National Security interests. We knew that the Supreme Court Justices were under pressure from the federal government not to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Hence, they are shopping for evidence to persuade the Judges.

The game that the Nigerian Government, her Security Forces, and Simon Ekpa are playing is an old faction and can not scale through because we have known their antics and strategies. We are aware they want to impose someone they can manipulate on IPOB and use him to scuttle the Biafra agitation. But that plan is dead on arrival. IPOB's foundation is impenetrable with strong but invisible forces behind it that the Nigerian government can not understand.
Imagine the Nigerian military referring to a criminal, as an IPOB leader. They are amateurs in the game they are playing. Unfortunately for them, we are Masters and we have an antidote to their double-agent game.

A few days ago, Simon Ekpa dished out threats to start a violent evacuation of Nigeria Army Biafraland, particularly in Anambra State. Boom, the Nigerian military issued their infamous statement referring and presenting someone to the world as IPOB leader even when they knew that IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had on several occasions distanced IPOB from the activities of Simon Ekpa which were criminal. Even Simon Ekpa himself does not claim to be an IPOB member, let alone an IPOB leader. He understands the consequences of claiming to be an IPOB member or leader.

All the shenanigans by the Nigerian Army, DSS, Police, and the Nigerian government trying to use Simon Ekpa as a double agent is because of our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU's case that is coming up on the 15th of December 2023. They are looking for ways to blackmail the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, before the Supreme Court Judges. The world knew that Simon Ekpa was not a member of IPOB and ESN and not representing Mazi Nnamdi KANU and IPOB in any way. The public should watch how the criminal and double agent in Finland will start violence a few days after Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's Supreme Court judgment. This criminal and his sponsors want to blackmail Mazi Nnamdi Kanu so that he will not be released. Remember that recently, the Nigerian Army called him an IPOB leader. They are all working together to blackmail and demonize IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. It is now obvious that the Nigerian Army was among the agencies that recruited the criminals ravaging the Southeast Region and Igbo land in particular.

For the Nigerian Army Chief to descend so low as to refer to Simon Ekpa as IPOB leader before the National Assembly is ridiculous and degrading to the Nigerian government and the Nigerian Army. Do they think Nigerians and the International Community are so daft not to understand who are IPOB members and who are not but just playing scripts?

Simon Ekpa is not an IPOB member, let alone an IPOB leader. Nigerian Supreme Court Justices have the constitutional right to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally and should never succumb to the executive and security arms of the government's blackmail because self-determination is not a crime. Moreover, forceful abduction and extraordinary rendition an international crimes that the Nigerian government must be held liable for.
