The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has issued a warning to journalists to stop associating Simon Ekpa, a Finland-based Biafra agitator, with Nnamdi Kanu’s cause.

In a statement released on Thursday and circulated by IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the secessionist group expressed its concern over the deliberate efforts of some media outlets to link Ekpa with the activities of IPOB and the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

IPOB clarified that Simon Ekpa is not a registered member of the organization or connected to the ESN. The group emphasized that he is acting on his own and warned media outlets to accurately represent this fact in their publications going forward.

The statement read, “We have observed with dismay the deliberate moves of some compromised media houses and social media platforms to attribute Simon Ekpa to the membership of the noble family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

For the purposes of clarity and emphasis, the said Simon Ekpa is not in any way a registered unit member of IPOB, nor is he connected to the Eastern Security Network (ESN).”

“It is therefore imperative that media houses are appropriately guided to reflect this reality in their publications, henceforth.”

IPOB further highlighted the organization’s unity and warned against attempts by government agencies to infiltrate and undermine their activities.

The group stated that Ekpa has his own separate group called “Government in Exile” and has been using the ESN name for fundraising schemes.

The statement continued, “We appeal to ladies and gentlemen of the media to please refrain from associating Ekpa as a member of IPOB because he is not. Recall, in 2016 DSS created a phantom factional IPOB leader known as Okwudili.

This time around they have unveiled Simon Ekpa who was the Okwudili of REN-IPOB. What the Government of Nigeria is doing today with Simon Ekpa is the same mission to divide and destroy IPOB from within which failed with the failed Okwudili of REN-IPOB.

All the efforts to bring IPOB down will fail and will continue to fail until Biafra is restored.”
