The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Nigerian government of bankrolling the Finland-based Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.
Kanu said the Nigerian government was bankrolling Ekpa to cause crisis across the Southeast.
The IPOB leader said the sit-at-home order was working for the government to “destroy our once peaceful land.”
Kanu’s remark was disclosed by his lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, after his routine legal visit to the Department of State Services, DSS.
According to the statement: “Onyendu used the opportunity provided by the visit, to remind our people and all Ezigbo Umuchineke to note that whoever still goes about to observe any unauthorized sit-at-home directive, should know that he or she is working for the Nigerian Government to destroy our once peaceful land.
“Onyendu was very emphatic that Simon Ekpa is procured and fully bankrolled by the Nigerian Government to cause unrest in our region.
“Other far-reaching directives Onyendu handed down today on how to nip the activities of Ekpa and his criminal cohorts in the bud, shall remain private.”
