The Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organization, on Saturday, confirmed the authenticity of the handwritten letter by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, to self-acclaimed Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.
Ohanaeze said Kanu sent the letter over Ekpa’s attempt to destroy the Southeast in 14 days using the sit-at-home.
The body said Ekpa’s claim that Kanu’s letter was fake proved that the Finland-based agitator was working for those determined to destroy the Southeast.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization noted that Ekpa capitalised on the Federal Government’s lapses to release Kanu to sponsor insecurity in the Southeast.
Speaking with DAILY POST, Ohanaeze’s factional Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said: “The current face-off between Simon Ekpa and Nnamdi Kanu is proof that he has been using Kanu’s incarceration to terrorize the people of the Southeast.
“He capitalized on the lapses of the Federal Government not to release Kanu on bail to terrorize the people of the Southeast.
“He is using the weak link to unleash terror on the Southeast while he is working for the enemies of Ndigbo to ensure that he destabilizes the Southeast. The people trying to destroy the Southeast through insecurity are those sponsoring Ekpa.
“After due investigation, the letter Kanu wrote to Ekpa is 100 percent genuine, we have confirmed from reliable sources that the handwritten letter was written in view of Ekpa’s sit-at-home to cripple the Southeast in 14 days, and this is the height of terrorism, given the entrepreneur nature of the Igbo nation.
“The authenticity of that letter is 100 percent, it’s not fake, Ekpa knows that by obeying Kanu, he would lose those sponsoring him to destroy the Southeast.
“Ekpa’s disobedience to Kanu’s order is a proof that he’s being sponsored by those who want the Southeast to continually have insecurity challenge.”
