Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, an Igbo socio-political organization, has placed $50,000 (N22,750,000 at N455 per dollar) on the notorious Finland-based self-proclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Simon Ekpa.
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, secretary-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, said in a statement issued on Tuesday, January 24, that the bounty placed on Ekpa has received a positive response from Ndigbo and Nigerians in Finland and Europe.
Isiguzoro also stated that Ekpa will be apprehended by appropriate authorities and returned to Nigeria in due course.
“Ndigbo will smoke him out of his hideouts in Finland and Europe, as Ndigbo and Nigerians in Finland and Europe have responded positively to the $50,000 bounty placed on him.
“It’s a matter of time, Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa will be apprehended, and his extradition to Nigeria will happen shortly so that he can answer all the allegations against him.
“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 elections on 25th February 2023.”
Ekpa intends to thwart efforts to hold a free and fair election in Southeast.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo also accused Ekpa of attempting to sabotage efforts by all stakeholders to ensure a credible and violence-free election in the southeast, and claimed that terrorists based in Finland had collected funds to carry out his antics.
Isiguzoro went on to say that the 2023 general elections must be held in the region and that Ndigbo must vote for whoever they want at the polls.
“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 drop the bounty placed on him.
“Ndigbo’s response to Simon Ekpa’s plea is that he should return the $1 million to the disfavoured and unpopular presidential candidate, he must quickly return all he had collected (to his paymasters) in other to destroy the support base of Peter Obi through his old-fashioned mantra of NO ELECTION IN BIAFRA Land, the statement declared.”
