Simon Ekpa, a self-styled disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has stated that some members of the group will no longer take orders from Kanu.
Ekpa stated that because Kanu is imprisoned, the group will no longer take orders from him.
He did, however, state that members would work to secure Kanu’s unconditional release.
Ekpa revealed in a series of tweets that agitators have entered the Biafra nation’s liberation phase.
He believes that the liberation of Biafra cannot be used against Kanu.
“We have entered the liberation phase of Biafra Nation, and we are not taking orders from our incarcerated leader,” he wrote.
“It is our responsibility to do everything possible to secure his unconditional release and to restore and liberate Biafra from Nigeria.”
“Our independence from Nigeria is unassailable.” Those who do not understand this message should know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will not be held accountable for the actions of Biafrans now that we have entered the liberation process.
“As a result, the order to liberate Biafra and secure his release cannot be used against him,” he said.
