Simon Ekpa: We Will Provide Evidence In Prosecuting Biafra Agitator — Ohanaeze

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed its readiness in providing evidence that would lead to the prosecution of Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.

Ekpa was arrested by Finnish authorities on Thursday following a complaint by the Igbo community in the country that nothing was being done to stop his directives to the southeastern part of Nigeria.

He was subsequently released after it was revealed that he had been apprehended for a suspected crime in connection with an ongoing investigation.

Speaking on Ekpa's arrest, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said the group is ready to assist the federal government with evidence to prosecute him.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo will be happy to help the Federal Government to provide all necessary evidence of terrorism that will help prosecute Ekpa.

“Nnamdi Kanu never openly admitted that he was responsible for the killings in the Southeast, but Ekpa has openly admitted that he is the one funding the killings in the Southeast.

“Kanu’s case is different, Ekpa’s case is different. Ekpa’s case is different because he was arrested by the Finnish authorities, while Kanu was arrested in Kenya.

“His arrest will not affect Nnamdi Kanu or complicate his matter because the IPOB leader was illegally kidnapped in Kenya but Ekpa is the founder of terrorism in the Southeast and there is a lot of evidence of this fact.

“Ohanaeze will provide evidence in Ekpa’s prosecution that would serve as a deterrent to others who want to go into violent agitations”, he said.
