A Self-acclaimed Biafran Spokesperson and Nnamdi Kanu’s disciple, Mazi Simon Ekpa, has dismissed Soludo’s statement on Nnamdi Kanu saying he is playing with fire.
The Finland-based activist, Simon Ekpa reacted to the viral video of Gov. Soludo appealing to the Federal Government of Nigeria for the unconditional and immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, from the custody of the Department of State Service DSS.
Meanwhile, in the trending clip of the National campaign flag-off of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, the crowd becomes more supportive when the issue of Mazi Kanu was brought up by Gov. Soludo.
Leading the passionate song “All We Are Saying Is Give Us Kanu! Crowd Echoes In Euphoria As Gov. Soludo Makes A Surprising Offer For Immediate Release Of Nnamdi Kanu
Gov. Soludo who is currently appointed as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA affirmed that the immediate release of Kanu would bring a significant atmosphere of peace and tranquility to the Southeast.
He, however, promised to stand surety to Kanu and provide shelter for him in Awka to ensure that he is made available to the authority whenever he is called.
In his words, Gov. Soludo said that “if the detained IPOB leader cannot be released unconditionally, he should be released to him, saying he is ready to stand surety for him.
“I am making a passionate appeal to the Federal Government to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally. If he cannot be released unconditionally, I want him released to me and I will stand surety for him”
“We need Nnamdi Kanu in the roundtable conversation to discuss the insecurity in the South East. We must end insecurity in the South East and we need Nnamdi Kanu to be around.”
Consequently, the statement of the governor has triggered mixed reactions from the Nigerians and Biafrans in the diaspora
The likes of Simon Ekpa and his fellows in the alleged Autopilot family of IPOB, feel contrary to the development.
Albeit a series of commentators have described the appeals of the Governor as timely and necessary, while others have come up with hips of criticisms, calling Prof. Soludo some unprintable names.
Some are still in wait for the reaction of the FG or the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB’s Directorate Of States (DOS).
