Anambra Community Passes Strong Message To Simon Ekpa

The residents of Aguleri community in Anambra-East local government area, Anambra State, have cautioned Simon Ekpa, who claims to be the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to cease his threats against their traditional ruler, HRH Dr. Michael Idigo.

The Aguleri Town Union leadership and Aguleri Royal Cabinet issued the warning during a press conference held at Eze Idigo’s Palace on Wednesday.

The community said Eze Idigo did not at any time pay visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained IPOB leader or speak for him on the sit-at-home issue in the south-east.

The president-general, Assembly Aguleri Town, Chief ifeanyi Iloakasia, who spoke on behalf of the community, said they were surprised by Ekpa’s threat on their traditional ruler for purportedly visiting Kanu and calling for an end to sit-at-home.

Iloakasia said it was HRH, Eze Chukwuemeka Eri, the traditional ruler of Enugwu Aguleri, one of the villages making up the larger Aguleri Community who actually visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and public announcement.

He said Chukwuemeka Eri, had the right in his capacity as ‘Eze Akajiovo’ and as a concerned stakeholder in the Southeast to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and make public statements thereon without being subjected to the unwarranted backlash that we have witnessed.

“Aguleri Community Assembly has noted with displeasure and bewilderment, the various comments made by Simon Ekpa and some other members of the IPOB directed Igwe Aguleri over his purported meeting with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at Abuja.

“That Igwe Idigo, Ezeudo Aguleri did not at any time visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at Abuja whether alone or in company of anybody.

“Ezeudo Aguleri is probably being mistaken for Eze Chukwuemeka Eri, Eze Akajiovo, who supposedly visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and made public statements thereafter,” he said.
