Simon Ekpa Declares Sit-At-Home In Lagos


Simon Ekpa, the self-proclaimed disciple of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has extended the sit-at-home observed in parts of the South East to Lagos State.

Ekpa in a tweet on Friday asked indigenes of Southeast Nigeria who are resident in Lagos to observe a sit-at-home exercise due to attacks targeted at them.

Ekpa rose to prominence in July 2021, after he was announced as the lead broadcaster of Radio Biafra.

The Finland based agitator who has continued to pledge allegiance to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra was recently arrested and detained in Finland.

Ekpa has been behind the continued enforcement of the sit-at-home order in the South East despite efforts made by IPOB to bring it to a halt.

He said, “I have just watched another Igbo Biafra Market in Lagos being burnt down in Balogun Lagos today, and I am very sad. Since after the election, igbo Biafrans in Lagos and their Businesses have been attacked and like I have said earlier, we can’t sit back and watch. As Biafrans in Lagos will be getting ready to return home with their businesses. To this end, we will activate sit at home for all Biafrans in Lagos.

“This sit at home is targeted at crippling the economy of the Lagos state government, whose body language has suggested to be directly responsible for the attack against Igbos. I therefore call on all Igbo market leaders in Lagos that we are ready to provide securities for all Igbo markets in Lagos pending when the businesses will be moved to the Eastern region. We will fortify all your markets against attackers. The underground work will start immediately. -ESN
