They knew that DOS were the only hope Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have to secure his freedom.
Nelly Ofoegbu knew this and Mr Ekpa knew too. What did they do? They jointly levied blackmail and accusations on DOS. Simon brought out his platform for Nelly to use to accuse DOS. Nelly came there and cried and lied. He accused innocent people. The leadership, MNK's secretary, the head of finance were all accused. The way Nelly was crying will move even a dead rock. Many people were moved. And many bought the lies. Mr Ekpa knew this to be lies, yet he played along.
Why did they do this?
Because they were recruited by Nigería government to destroy IPOB leadership. They kept dishing out lies upon lies against IPOB. While doing this they pretended it was for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. They knew how the people loved MNK and they took advantage.
Finance was very important to the struggle. They knew this and planned to destroy it all. Reason they accused IPOB finance of eating money and squandering ESN funds. They created doubt in the minds of weak. They told these lies, even when they were the people that hijacked an Account meant for that purpose and for more than 8 months they claimed that they were in charge of ESN. They started conducting ESN fundraising every month. They recruited crimînals who continued to cause problems for IPOB. These crimînals continued molesting our people and threatening everybody. Their aim was to rubbish the integrity of IPOB ESN as to have them weakened. They wanted the people to start speaking ills of the movement. And when that happens, IPOB will be destroyed by herself.
These two mounted a campaign against the command structure of IPOB. Those that recruited them all knew that this chain of command is the backbone of IPOB and they were all out to have it destroyed. Mr Ekpa organised a sham vote of no confidence on DOS after which he declared that no one should listen to DOS ever again, as Biafrans have rejected them. He went on to say that any order given by DOS going forward, they will present a counter order. He was recruited to play a part in creating a form of disarray in IPOB. To replicate the same method the government used to destroy #EndSARS. Create chaos, say crimînals have hijacked IPOB and have her destroyed. Don't forget that it was in a zoom meeting attended by 7k people that Mr Ekpa conducted a vote of no confidence on IPOB leadership leading more than 50 million people. He kept bragging and fronting himself as the leader. Tell me how 7k people we don't know who they were, can vote out people leading millions.
They recruited some dub-ious individuals inside IPOB and fooled some to support them. And these people went all out against the leadership of a struggle they once loved. They failed to ask themselves what exactly will happen to Mazi Nnamdi, the ESN and the movement thousands have died protecting, should IPOB leadership be destroyed. The destruction of IPOB leadership is the destruction of IPOB. Kîll the leadership and you have Kîlled the struggle. Then how will MNK be released? Who will take care of the legal team? Who will organise the numerous protest across the globe for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu? Non of them cared to ask these vital questions.
We are even talking about all these things today because their plans for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya didn't work out. The plan was to kîll him and accuse IPOB leadership and his family of betraying him. And when this is done, IPOB will become a history for the people will move against they them not knowing they were all innocent. But God in his mercy saved Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from them. People were fooled by these crimînals even when MNK was alive. Imagine what would have happened had it been he died in Kenya.
Make no mistake about this. Both Nelly and Mr Ekpa were part of this grand plan to have Mazi Nnamdi Kanu kîlled and IPOB destroyed. But God stopped them. Forget the games they are playing. With time their involvement will be exposed, and they will face the nemesis of their actions.
