The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB through her lawyer Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor has initiated a legal action against the factional leader of IPOB Mr Simon Ekpa resident in Finland.
Ekpa has been known for giving contradictory instructions and declarations which has culminated in unrest and insecurity in the southeastern part of Nigeria. The latest in the line of disturbing declarations given by Ekpa was a one week sit-at-home scheduled for Monday 12 December 2022 to Sunday 18, December 2022. This order led to the death of many and the destruction of property worth millions as armed criminal under the command of Ekpa enforced the sit-at-home.
The incarcerated IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has long condemned the actions of Ekpa and his criminal cohort and mourned the death of those killed.
Information obtained from the official Facebook account of the IPOB attorney reads below:
UPDATE ON LEGAL ACTION AGAINST SIMON EKPA.
Today, we formally commenced a legal action before the FCT High Court against Simon Ekpa, which action is founded on a plethora of grave infractions arising from his violent, disturbing and false declarations.
I may not release further details here so that it will not prejudice the robust legal actions already lined up for him and his cohorts. It shall be coming in piecemeal. This is the first batch.
I also want to assure Simon Ekpa and his cohorts affected by this compelling legal action, that no matter the country you people believe to be presently hiding under its sovereign protection, the full arms of the law shall certainly catch up with you all, in the legal onslaught already commenced. This is just one in the long line of compelling civil and criminal litigations coming your way.
The hour has come, and I wish to reiterate that you Simon Ekpa cannot escape from the long arms of the law.
We move! With this oji abatam!
Sir ifeanyi Ejiofor, Esq.
