By CHARLES ONYEKWERE, ABAKALIKI
Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has demanded the immediate arrest and repatriation of Simon Ekpa, a breakaway factional leader of Indigenous peoples of Biafra (IPOB).
In a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Nazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, urge security agencies to commence the processes to sure that those responsible for the pandemonium, destruction of public properties, killings, and civil unrest in the south-east are to face the consequences of their actions.
The statement frowned at the incitement of chaos towards the insecurity challenges in the South-east by Ekpa, overseas provocateur and instigator for the current killings in Imo state, destruction of public properties in Enugu State and disturbance of public peace in Ebonyi state.
The statement read in part” Ndigbo will liaise with relevant organizations, Finland Embassy in Nigeria, and Nigerians in Diaspora to seek ways to bring back Simon Ekpa to Nigeria to face prosecution and trials over the killings of south Easterners, burning of public properties and the disturbances of public peace.

“Surprisingly, the so-called self-acclaimed Biafran agitator is championing the disruption of election processes in the South-east, with evil decrees against the collection of PVCs in the zone and institute an illegal but violent Sit-at-homes to undermine the economy of Ndigbo in this festive season and stimulate violence, massacres, and chaos as Christmas gifts for Ndigbo.
“Ndigbo calls for the immediate arrest, repatriation of Simon Ekpa, to Nigeria, he’s a trickery man and criminal hiding behind Finland citizenship and Biafra agitation to wreak havoc, extort monies from Nigerians abroad, and influence the insecurity challenges against Ndigbo”,
Ohanaeze suggests that arresting Mr Simon Ekpa will end up insecurity challenges in the southeast and serve as a deterrent to others.
