All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA has said accused one of the spokespersons for the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Simon Ekpa as the leader of the unknown gunmen group responsible for the mass destruction of lives and properties in the southeastern states of Nigeria.
National Coordinator of APGA media warriors, Chinedu Obigwe made the accusation on Sunday while speaking with journalists in Awka, Anambra state capital.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that APGA claimed that Ekpa has been “blackmailing” Anambra State Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo.
Obigwe added that Ekpa dumped Nnamdi Kanu, the detained IPOB Leader.
“Investigation proved beyond every reasonable doubt that one Finland-based Simon Ekpa is the leader of the criminal gang terrorising the state and the whole Igbo land under the guise of enforcing the ‘Monday sit-at-home order.
“Ekpa has resorted to blackmailing Soludo and the authentic leadership of IPOB, but shame awaits him because the governor is not ready to back out of his decision to restore the economy of the South-East from being destroyed by criminals. The most annoying part is that Ekpa is not based in Nigeria.
“Ekpa dumped Nnamdi Kanu and said openly that his faction of IPOB would no longer take directives from him”, Obigwe said.
