Ohanaeze reveals plans to detain Simon Ekpa and declares that Igbos are prepared to pursue him after a $50,000 bounty.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide reported on Wednesday that Igbos have pledged to use the $50,000 bounty placed on self-described Biafran agitator Simon Ekpa to smoke him out of his hideout.

According to Ohanaeze Secretary-General Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Finnish Igbos and Nigerians have expressed interest in ensuring that Ekpa is apprehended and returned to Nigeria so that he can be punished for the crimes he propagated in the Southeast.

According to the Daily Post, Ekpa has been linked to the resurgence of killings in the Southeast following the detention of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.

While gunmen allegedly associated with Ekpa have been wreaking havoc in the region, Ekpa has recently been issuing sit-at-home instructions.

Ohanaeze had revoked the sit-at-home orders and placed a $50,000 bounty on Ekpa in an effort to end the situation.

However, Isiguzoro stated that Ohanaeze had initiated efforts to capture Ekpa and bring him back to Nigeria through the Nigerian government.

Isiguzoro told Daily Post that Ekpa had sent emissaries to beg the social and political group.

Isiguzoro stated, Ekpa has been sending emissaries and third parties to beg Ohanaeze Ndigbo to remove the sanctions and withdraw the bounty since he withdrew his previous response.

“The fact of the matter is that we have received some positive responses from well-meaning Ndigbos and Nigerians who are opposed to the killings in the Southeast.

Imagine a local government chairman being killed in Imo State because of Simon Ekpa’s excesses and vitriol.

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

“At the appropriate time, we are putting up all measures through the Nigeria Diaspora Commission and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Finish embassy in Nigeria, 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,” the statement reads.
