Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has disclosed that strong disciplinary actions would be taken against those responsible for the civil unrest in the southeastern part of Nigeria.
This was stated in a statement signed by the secretary general of the organization, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro.
The statement reads in part, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has commenced the processes of making sure that those responsible for the pandemonium, destruction of public properties, killings, and civil unrest in the southeast will face the consequences of their actions.”
Ohanaeze noted that Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa has been identified as the provocateur and instigator for the current killings in Imo State, the destruction of properties in Enugu State and the disturbance of public peace and sporadic shootings in Ebonyi State.

“Ndigbo will liaise with relevant organizations, Finish Embassy in Nigeria, and Nigerians in Diaspora to seek ways to bring back Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa to Nigeria to face prosecution and trials over the killings of south Easterners, burning of public properties, and the disturbances of public peace.”
“Surprisingly, the so-called self-acclaimed Biafran agitator is championing the disruption of election processes in the southeast, with evil decrees against the collection of PVCs in the southeast, and institute an illegal but violent Sit at homes, to undermine the economy of Ndigbo in this festive seasons and stimulate violence, massacres, and chaos as Christmas gifts for Ndigbo.”
“Ndigbo calls for the immediate arrest, and repatriation of Simon Ekpa, to Nigeria. He’s a trickery man and criminal hiding behind Finish citizenship and Biafra agitation to wreak havoc, extort monies from Nigerians abroad, and influence the insecurity challenges against Ndigbo.”
“This is the height of deception and treachery against Ndigbo, and the immediate arrest of Simon Ifeanyi Njoku Ekpa will end insecurity and serve as a deterrent to others, who might want to consider being a menace to the public, particularly to the people of the southeast,” the statement reads.
