According to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who represents Abia South, the sit-at-home directive issued by Simon Ekpa, a self-proclaimed follower of Nnamdi Kanu, appears to have turned into a means of making money.
During an interview with Channels TV, Abaribe, monitored by our correspondent suggested that Ekpa and his associates are reluctant to rescind the order due to financial gains they are reaping from it.
Abaribe highlighted that leaders from the South-East have agreed to engage with the Bola Tinubu government regarding Nnamdi Kanu’s ongoing detention.
The lawmaker stated, “The individual who is benefitting from this, despite being located in Finland, disavowed it but added further conditions, insisting that they would only halt it once we (South-East leaders) meet with him in Finland.”
“It’s evident that because they are profiting from this situation, they are unwilling to cease it as it has transformed into a lucrative endeavor.”
“We’ve come across online advertisements soliciting contributions for the Biafra liberation cause.”
