‘Nnamdi Kanu’s disciple’, Simon Ekpa finally breaks silence on suspension by IPOB

Simon Ekpa, self-acclaimed disciple of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has finally reacted to his suspension by the secessionist group from announcing on Radio Biafra.

Recall that following the rearrest and detention of Kanu by the Federal Government, Ekpa, who is a dual citizen of both Nigeria and Finland, was appointed to disseminate information concerning the Biafra struggle pending the freedom of his principal.

But on August 21, IPOB renounced Ekpa stating that he is not a registered member of the separatist group in Finland. He was also suspended from announcing on Biafra platforms.


Reacting, Ekpa, who was regarded by Nigerians as more dangerous than Nnamdi Kanu, linked his suspension and disownment to the absence of the IPOB leader who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Service.

In a recent tweet on his official Twitter handle, Ekpa lamented that those behind his suspension were mum when he was announcing activities of the group prior to Kanu’s rearrest.

The tweet reads, “I will announce fundraising for ESN, announce protest, announce zoom meeting of IPOB when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had his freedom.

“Almost all fundraising of IPOB families across the globe was announced by me, flyers posted by me. But in the absence of MNK some ‘efulefu’ are talking trash”.
