Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa has accused self-acclaimed Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa of sabotaging the activities of security agents in the Southeast.
Lifestyle Nigeria reports that General Musa disclosed this when he led other Service Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police to appear before the House of Representatives at the commencement of its sectoral debate on Tuesday.
He said, “Simon Ekpa is sabotaging our efforts in the Southeast.”
Musa, while stressing that Finland was protecting Ekpa, urged the Federal Government to engage the Finnish government and possibly invite its ambassador to Nigeria over the activities of the agitator.
He said while the military and other security agencies in the country are doing their best to ensure that there is peace in the southeast, the comments and activities of Ekpa are sabotaging such efforts.
Following the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Ekpa had claimed to have taken over the agitation for the restoration of Biafra.
Biafra agitator is widely believed to be funding some armed groups operating in the Southeast, who usually enforce the sit-at-home order declared by him.
