Nigerians Sign Petition for Simon Ekpa’s Arrest over 5-Day-Sit-At-Home Order

Nigerians from all over the world are signing a petition to urge the Finnish government, the Nigerian government, and the European Union to arrest Simon Ekpa, the man responsible for the five-day sit-at-home order that recently resulted in the deaths of several South-East citizens.

In a widely shared video, Ekpa, a self-declared leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had directed residents of the South-East to observe a 5-day sit-at-home protest from December 9 to14, a law that was enforced in the area with bloodshed and the destruction people’s lives and properties.

Even as the sit-at-home directive had expired, the violence has persisted in the area despite IPOB’s denials of ever issuing a sit-at-home order on the days in question.

But aggrieved Nigerians are signing the petition calling for Ekpa’s arrest for inciting terrorism and genocide.

Nnamdi Kanu, an IPOB leader who is currently in custody, also denounced the attacks that have been occurring in the country’s east as a result of Ekpa’s sit-at-home order.
