Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a sociopolitical movement, has threatened to offer terrorism evidence to prosecute Simon Ekpa, the factional head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Once Ekpa was released by the Finnish authorities a few hours after he was detained for an unspecified offence, Ohanaeze made this vow.
Finish police on Thursday had arrested Ekpa at his apartment in Lahti.
The Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro in a chat with Daily Post said Ekpa’s arrest would not affect Nnamdi Kanu’s case.
Isiguzoro said: “Ohanaeze Ndigbo will be happy to help the Federal Government to provide all necessary evidence of terrorism that will help prosecute Ekpa.
“Nnamdi Kanu never openly admitted that he was responsible for the killings in the Southeast, but Ekpa has openly admitted that he is the one funding the killings in the Southeast.
“Kanu’s case is different, Ekpa’s case is different. Ekpa’s case is different because he was arrested by the Finnish authorities, while Kanu was arrested in Kenya.
“His arrest will not affect Nnamdi Kanu or complicate his matter because the IPOB leader was illegally kidnapped in Kenya but Ekpa is the founder of terrorism in the Southeast and there are a lot of evidence to this fact.
“Ohanaeze will provide evidence in Ekpa’s prosecution that would serve as a deterrent to others who want to go into violent agitations.”
