Finland-based Biafran agitator and self-proclaimed Prime Minister of the Biafra Government in Exile, Simon Ekpa says no governor in the South-East can ban the Monday sit-at-home imposed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Ekpa who was reacting to an order banning the sit-at-home by Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah, said the observance by the people on Monday has shown that the Governor’s orders did not carry weight as no governor in the eastern region could cancel the sit-at-home order unless the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, is released from detention.
Ekpa who said that Mbah has been disgraced, insisted that states in the South-East region would remain shut down on Mondays in solidarity with Kanu.
“The illegitimate governor has been disgraced by Biafrans in Enugu state today,” Ekpa wrote on his Twitter handle on Monday.
“It is one of a kind vote of no confidence. No governor in the Eastern region is in charge. The Biafra Republic Government In-Exile is In Charge! Try again and see,” he said.
