‘End Sit-At-Home’: Ejimakor Responds To Critics After Releasing Kanu’s Letter To Ekpa


By Adadareporters

Barr Aloy Ejimakor, special counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has responded to the barrage of criticisms in the aftermath of Kanu’s order ending all sit-at-home directives in the Southeast.

Ejimakor, last Friday during a world-press conference, presented a handwritten letter Kanu wrote to acclaimed prime minister of Biafra Government in Exile, Mr Simon Ekpa. In the letter, Kanu ordered Ekpa to desist from issuing sit-at-home orders, describing it as ‘waste of time’.

Sit-at-home was initiated in Southeast states by IPOB to press the release of Kanu who is being detained at the custody of State Services over alleged running a proscribed group, jumping bail and treason. Kanu earlier cancelled the order, but Ekpa’s counter-orders made the observance of the orders, especially in Southeast states, persist.

Ejimakor stated, “Those attacking me, hear this: The persons you despise as ‘Autopilots’ are those #MNK called ‘Disciples’ in the Order, and he does not hate them & @simon_ekpa as you do. That’s why he had ordered me to keep a cordial relationship with Simon for a day like this.”

Bright Obiefule had written, “It doesn’t matter. What matters now is that Maazị Nnamdị Kanụ must be out of that dungeon, and we both know legal processes of his release are not something worth taking into consideration. If Sit At Home is what’s needed to free him, we are going to do it.”

Godsent @Godsentforreal wrote, “If president Bola Tinubu doesn’t take the footstep of Buhari, the first thing he would have done is to do a table talk with the serious agitators’ group, release Kanu and bring peace to the nation before removing fuel subsidy. Sunday Ighoho is still on exile right now.”

According to Chiemelie Eze, “It is suicidal to continue sitting at home when government has not released Kanu for over two years now. It is counter-productive to the same people Kanu is protecting. So, Ejimakor has played a key role by making the stand of Kanu open. We should obey Kanu’s order. He will also be happy.”

For Anthony Martinokafor @Makafor, “The government should release Kanu first, else sit-at-home will resume a month or two from today.”

Ginika Nnakaife @GNnakaife82235 wrote, “Ejimakor go back and tell Mazi that we Biafrans have activated the metal toughness he asked us to use during this time. Remain blessed.”

Kanu’s letter to Ekpa read, “Simon (Ekpa), this is a direct order from me. I hereby instruct you to desist from calling for any Sit-at-Home henceforth. Equally refrain from antagonizing governors or persons in political positions because you are not in a position to know what they are doing on my behalf. I am ordering you to make a public announcement to the effect that you are in receipt of a direct order from me to cancel any pending Sit-at-Home in place at the moment.

“I embarked on this movement to liberate our people, not to enslave them. I despise and will despise any person or entity that wishes to inflict unnecessary hardship on our people. I have authorized Aloy to issue a press statement if you fail to make this announcement on your platform.

“Anybody still engaging in Sit-at-Home is not my disciple. Haters of Biafra and mindless murderers in uniform are hiding under the cover of combating enforcers of Sit-at-Home to unleash mayhem against the same people we swore to defend.

“I have sent countless messages to those purportedly enforcing Sit-at-Home that they are not doing so in my name. I am not begging anybody to release me just that Nigeria should have the decency to obey their own laws.

“The main issue which our people should address their minds is the unconscionable delays in hearing he government appeal at the Supreme Court, which is a situation not amenable to any Sit-at-Home. Therefore Sit-at-Home is a waste of time, resources and energy.

“Those who may not understand the genesis of the Sit-at-Home should refer to my younger brother’s press statement on the eve of the commencement of the original order issued by the IPOB family. My brother made it clear to the DOS that I was against the order for people to stay at home under whatever guise. This caused a rift between my siblings and DOS till date.

“I want our people to know how this whole sit-at-home brouhaha started. Had DOS obeyed my direct instructions to cancel the first Monday sit-at-home, opportunistic scavengers would not have jumped on the bandwagon to wreak havoc on our people.

“You (Aloy) must release the press statement tomorrow (Friday) with the screenshot of the handwritten note I gave to you unfailingly.”
