Sit-At-Home: Ohanaeze, South-East leaders place $500,000 bounty on Simon Ekpa


The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in conjunction with political leaders from the Southeast, has offered a reward of $500,000 for anyone who can provide useful information about the whereabouts of Simon Ekpa and aid in his subsequent capture and arrest.

Simon Ekpa, a Finland-based Biafra agitator, has been accused of being responsible for recent violence, insecurity, and economic disruptions in Southeast Nigeria. He is alleged to have orchestrated a sit-at-home order that paralyzed the region for one week in early July 2023, resulting in loss of lives and severe economic and social disruptions.

Recent developments suggest that Ekpa was located in Espoo city, Finland, on July 21, 2023, but managed to escape capture with serious injuries. He is believed to be receiving medical treatment in an undisclosed hospital in Havana, Cuba, where he is reportedly undergoing urgent plastic surgery.

Despite Ekpa’s efforts to deceive his followers with old recorded videos, Ohanaeze Ndigbo maintains that he is a threat to the region’s stability and peace. He has declared another two weeks of sit-at-home from July 31 to August 14, 2023, challenging the authority of Southeast Governors who are constitutionally responsible for safeguarding the lives and properties of citizens.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls on the people of Southeast Nigeria to unite and confront these security challenges head-on. Ekpa’s actions and his self-proclaimed role as the Prime Minister of the Biafra Government in Exile, along with his declaration of a Biafra referendum, pose serious risks of civil unrest and chaos in the region.

Given the scars of the Biafra-Nigeria civil war, Ohanaeze Ndigbo emphasizes the need to prevent history from repeating itself and urges the people of Southeast Nigeria to stand united against insecurity threats. The ongoing search for Ekpa is seen as a preventive measure to avert further sit-at-home disruptions that could lead to economic and social setbacks.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo appeals to all Igbo individuals to actively participate in preventing violence and disruptions. The organization encourages people to provide any information that could lead to the capture of Simon Ekpa and bring an end to his dangerous activities. Together, the people of Southeast Nigeria can ensure peace, security, and progress in the region.
