The Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organization, has accused Finland-based agitator, Simon Ekpa of declaring a second Biafra war in the Southeast while announcing a $500, 000 bounty on him.
Ohanaeze’s Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro in a statement urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to deploy soldiers to every corner of the Southeast.
Isiguzoro told DAILY POST that: “We are telling Tinubu that the second Biafra war has begun and he should deploy soldiers to all the nooks and crannies of the Southeast.
“The Southeast Governors need help and Ohanaeze is asking the Southeast Governors to defend themselves from external enemies. At this point in time, we can’t allow somebody in far-away Finland to dictate the pace”.
The Secretary-General pleaded with the Government of Ebonyi State and the Southeast to ensure that the terrorist activities of Ekpa are solved in his homeland because he has declared a second civil war in the Southeast and anybody with useful information will be given $500, 000.
He said it is a self-help to ensure that the people in the Southeast get a secure environment.
“The Southeast Governors appear to be weak and they are using the wrong approach in dealing with Ekpa. Our suspicion has been confirmed that what Ekpa is doing is to destroy the economy of the Southeast”, Isiguzoro bemoaned.
Ekpa has been at the centre of the renewed crisis across the Southeast following the sit-at-home, he declared.
Credible News reports that the latest sit-at-home had crippled the economy of the Southeast.
