Simon Ekpa, a Biafran separatist leader stationed in Finland, has absolved his organisation, the Auto-pilot and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, of responsibility for the killings and damage in the southeast and placed the blame on politicians.
He claimed that sit-at-home is a kind of civic disobedience, politicians are the ones funding goons to wreck havoc in the area.
Ekpa discussed his anger and the reasons behind his actions during a question-and-answer session in an exclusive interview with Vanguard.
According to him, “The same politicians are doing it. Politicians are mopping up arms and sponsoring armed groups. This is among the armed groups they are using to sabotage Biafra’s agitation and realisation of Biafra.
“Whenever we call for a sit-at-home, these people will unleash these armed groups to go and start causing problems to tag it Biafra, thinking that when they do that, we are going to run away.
“We have been shouting about it for a very long time. So, if you want to look for who are the people responsible for the violence in the South East, look at these armed people sponsored by politicians.”
