NewsNigeriaPoliticsIgbophobia: IPOB spokesperson, Simon Ekpa to activate sit-at-home in Lagos

Simon Ekpa, the self-proclaimed spokesperson of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, says plans are underway to activate sit-at-home in Lagos state.

Disclosing this in a tweet on Tuesday, the controversial IPOB activist said the sit-at-home was in reaction to the recent attacks on Igbos of the South East region in Lagos.

His tweet reads, “I have just watched another Igbo Biafran market in Lagos being burnt down in Balogun, Lagos today, and I am very sad.

“Since after the election, Igbo Biafrans in Lagos and their Businesses have been attacked and as I have said earlier, we can’t sit back and watch as Biafrans in Lagos will be getting ready to return home with their businesses. To this end, we will activate sit-at-home for all Biafrans in Lagos.”

According to the Finnish lawyer, the sit-at-home exercise is targeted at crippling the economy of Lagos.

He solicited compliance to the exercise by every Igbo business owner, trader etc. in the state and assured them of their security.

He said, “This sit at home is targeted at crippling the economy of the Lagos state government, whose body language has suggested to be directly responsible for the attack against Igbos.

“I, therefore, call on all Igbo market leaders in Lagos that we are ready to provide securities for all Igbo markets in Lagos pending when the businesses will be moved to the eastern region. We will fortify all of your markets against attackers. The underground work will start immediately. -ESN

“This sit-at-home, when activated applies to every Biafran doing business in Lagos. Both shop owners, commercial bus drivers etc.”

In follow-up tweets, Ekpa harped on the importance of the imminent sit-at-home in Lagos by the Igbos.
