The Concerned Nigerian Network (CNN) in Diaspora, has warned Simon Ekpa, the self-acclaimed promoter of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to cease sit-at-home order in the South-Eastern region.
James Erebuoye, President CNN, who is also the Founder of the Rebuild Nigeria Movement (RNM) worldwide stated this in Abuja.
Erebuoye warned that if Ekpa refused his advise, he would ensure that Ekpa is chased out from his comfort zone in Finland and made to face the law and the consequences of his actions in Nigeria.
“He cannot be in his comfort zone abroad and be instigating crisis in Nigeria by ordering a sit-at-home order in the Eastern region, thereby depriving people from their daily businesses all for his selfish interest”.
IPOB, in August 2021, introduced a sit-at-home order every Monday across South-East States to pressure home their demand to the Federal Government to release its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu is standing trial on treason charges at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Peter Mbah, Governor of Enugu State recently announced that enforcers of the sit-at-home order in the state and other parts in the South-East are criminals hiding under the guise of being Biafra agitators and protesting the detention of Kanu to commit crimes.
Mbah stated that the State Government was exploring the option of prosecuting IPOB enforcing team and the illegal sit-at-home order in the state at the International Criminal Court in Hague.
The governor added that technology had already been deployed to guarantee safety of residents.
