Insecurity: Ohaneze Places $50,000 Bounty On Simon Ekpa

In a bid to end the sit-at-home in the Southeast part of Nigeria, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has placed a $50,000 bounty on the self-acclaimed Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.

The development was made known on Wednesday by the Secretary-General of Ohaneze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro.

Isiguzoro vowed that the apex body of Ndigbo will do everything in her power to arrest the self-acclaimed disciple of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and repatriate him to Nigeria to face punishment for the crimes he propagated in the Southeast.

Ekpa has been linked to the resurgent killings in the Southeast following the detention of Kanu.

Lately, Ekpa has been issuing sit-at-home orders while gunmen allegedly linked to him have been wreaking havoc in the region.

Ohaneze nullified the sit-at-home order and placed the bounty on Ekpa.

Isiguzoro said Ohanaeze had initiated efforts through the Nigerian government to apprehend Ekpa and return him to Nigeria.

The Secretary-General said Ekpa had sent emissaries to beg the socio-political organization.

Isiguzoro said, “In the past 24 hours, Ekpa withdrew his earlier response, and he has been sending emissaries and third parties to beg Ohanaeze Ndigbo to remove the sanctions and withdraw the bounty.

“The fact is that we have had some positive response from Ndigbos and well-meaning Nigerians who are not in support of the killings in the Southeast.

“Imagine that a local government Chairman was killed in Imo State, and these are the excesses and vituperations of Simon Ekpa.

“What we have seen in the last 24 hours we placed the bounty is that Ndigbos and Nigerians in Finland have informed us that they would smoke him out of his hideout in no distance time.

“At the appropriate time, we are putting up all measures through the Finish embassy in Nigeria through the Nigeria Diaspora Commission and Ministry of Foreign Affairs to track him down and bring him down to Nigeria to face the crimes he committed against humanity and the good people of the Southeast.”
