The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, a socio-cultural organization based in Igboland, has called on Simon Ekpa to return the $1 million he allegedly received from his paymasters in order to destroy the chances of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the 2023 Presidential election.
According to the group, Ekpa will be pursued around the world for the atrocities he committed against the South-East geopolitical zone.
The Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Comrade Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said during an interview: “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has cautioned one Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa to return the funds he collected with the evil intent to destroy the prospects of the Labour Party to win the 2023 presidential election on February 25, 2023.
Intelligence reports have it that Simon Ekpa became frightened that his secrets have been uncovered and he quickly retreated and withdrew his response to the $50,000 bounty placed on him and has been begging Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the last 24 hours through the third-parties to reconsider and review the sanctions as well as drop the bounty placed on him.”
It was also stated that the leader of the splitter group of the Indigenous People of Biafra was following the script of those opposed to a Nigerian president of Igbo descent. The group also warned that they will resist any attempt by Simon Ekpa to scare away voters in the South-East and South-South through his planned four-day sit-at-home.
The Secretary-General added, “Our suspicion was reinforced after Ekpa asked for forgiveness and we knew that his plans to boycott the elections in southeastern Nigeria were to stop ‘ObiDient’ devotees from voting for Peter Obi and lessen the strength of the South-East.
The 2023 presidential elections must hold in the South-East, and Ndigbo must vote for whoever is their choice at the polls.
Simon Ekpa must pay back all that he has amassed from the enemies of Ndigbo, stop his killer squad in southeastern Nigeria, show remorseful repentance and apologise for the inconveniences caused by his rantings and crooked falsehoods about Ndigbo.”
