The senator representing Abia south, Enyinnaya Abaribe has claimed that the sit-at-home order by a self-acclaimed disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, Simon Ekpa, has become a money-making scheme.
Abaribe, in an interview with Channels TV, said that is the reason Ekpa and his cohorts are refusing to reverse the order.
The lawmaker pointed out that leaders in the South-East agreed to meet with the President Bola Tinubu government over Kanu’s continued detention.
Abaribe said: “Of course, the man who is profiting from it, who is far away in Finland, denounced it and put more conditions saying they will never stop it until we (South-East leaders) see him in Finland.
“We can now see that because they profit from this, they are not going to stop it because it has become a money-making venture.
“We have seen adverts on the internet asking people to contribute money for the liberation of Biafra.”
