Ohanaeze Ndigbo places $50,000 bounty on Simon Ekpa

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has urged the people of the Southeast to disregard the sit-at-home order issued by a self-proclaimed disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, Simon Ekpa.

Ekpa had declared sit-at-home across the Southeast on Monday and Tuesday.

However, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, declared Ekpa to be the Igbo nation’s number one enemy, and thus the sit-in should be cancelled.

The group also imposed a $50,000 bounty on Ekpa, who is based in Finland.

In a statement issued by Isiguzoro, Ohanaeze urged Southeast governors to declare Monday and Tuesday public holidays so that Southeast residents could obtain their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs).

He urged the Southeast Governors to emulate the wisdom of the Abia State Government to declare public holidays on the same days for the people to go out and get their PVCs before the deadline on 29th of January 2023.

“Ndigbo has placed a bounty reward of $50, 000 for anyone who has useful information on how Simon Ekpa will be apprehended for his extradition and prosecution in Nigeria, to answer the law of land over his criminalities, incitement of violent killings, and, burning of public properties in the name of self-determination.”

Ohanaeze urged Igbos residents in Finland to report Ekpa to INTERPOL to aid his arrest.

“Ndigbo should know that Simon Ekpa will never return to Southeast again in the future and Igbo residents in Finland who had earlier disowned his actions and activities should aid the Nigerian Government and INTERPOL to arrest Simon Ekpa in other to stabilise the southeast and rescue the zone from the nefarious activities of his gang members masquerading as biafra agitators, who are interested in killing people and burning the public buildings.

“The tasks to preserve and rescue the Southeast should begin with the help of all Igbos in the diaspora and at home, to assist in the arrest of the worsening security challenges, dwindling of the economic and social activities caused by Ekpa’s rantings and illegal sit-at-home.

“Ndigbo has declared Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa on this day 23rd of January 2023 as the number one adversary and enemy of Ndigbo, who Ndigbo had caught sight of in the last 200 years,” he added.
