Nigerians sign petition for Simon Ekpa’s arrest over sit-at-home directive
Written by City Radio on December 15, 2022
Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora on Thursday have begun signing a petition calling on the Finnish government, the European Union and the Federal Government of Nigeria to arrest Nnamdi Kanu’s self-acclaimed disciple, Simon Ekpa.
The petition was hinged on the sit-at-home exercise ordered by Ekpa calling on the South-East region residents to observe which has also resulted in attacks and killings of innocent Nigerians by enforcers reported as unknown gunmen.
The Finland-based member of the Indigenous People of Biafra, in a viral video, directed the people of the South-East to observe a sit-at-home from December 9-14, 2022.
IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, countered the order and directed Kanu’s group members and residents of the region to boycott sit-at-home and go about their business.
Consequently, angry Nigerians are signing the petition calling for Ekpa’s arrest for “terrorism and genocide.”
The petition read: “We call on the Finnish Government, EU, The Nigerian Government to arrest Mr. Simon Ekpa, and investigate all his heinous crimes and terror activities in Eastern Nigeria.
