A faction of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organization has expressed its resolve to capture self-styled Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.
The group expressed determination to ensure that Ekpa is brought to justice for his crimes in the Southeast.
The socio-cultural organization was reacting to the Biafra referendum convention called by Ekpa.
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary-General of the faction said Ekpa’s call for a referendum congress was concerning.
A statement by Isiguzoro said: “Ekpa’s self-proclaimed role as the Prime Minister of the Biafra Government in Exile and his declaration of a Biafra referendum is deeply concerning.
“Such actions have the potential to ignite civil unrest and chaos in Southeast Nigeria.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo, together with Southeast political leaders, remains resolute in capturing Simon Ekpa and bringing him to justice.
“The ongoing search for Ekpa is a preventive measure aimed at averting the upcoming Sit-at-Home disruptions.”
