A popular Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa has knocked Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah over his comment on Monday’s sit-at-home order.
Mbah had vowed to shut down schools and businesses observing the sit-at-home order.
But the Finland-based lawyer and self-acclaimed Prime Minister of the Biafra Government in Exile, BRGIE, on his Twitter handle on Monday, said no governor in the eastern region could cancel the sit-at-home order unless Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB, is released.
He stressed that states in the Southeast would remain shut down on Mondays in solidarity with Kanu.
“The illegitimate governor has been disgraced by Biafrans in Enugu state today. It is one of a kind vote of no confidence. No governor in the Eastern region is in charge. The Biafra Republic Government In-Exile is In Charge! Try again and see”, he claimed.
Recall that Kanu was re-arrested in 2019 by the Nigerian Government.
Despite several court orders requesting the release of Kanu, the Government of the immediate past president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, did not grant him bail.
