Gowon unwelcome in Southeast-Simon Ekpa warns Otti against trending on wrong footing




A popular pro-Biafra Separatist agitator, Mazi Simon Ekpa, has reacted to the proposed visit of former military head of state, General Yakubu Gowon, to Abia State.

Recall that General Gowon had hinted at visiting Abia state for a post-inauguration prayer on Sunday, April 23 but was later suspended due to criticism.

However, in a statement on Monday, Ekpa said that Gowon is unwanted in the Southeast region.

He noted that not Gowon’s prayers are not needed in the Southeast.

Finland-based Ekpa urged Alex Otti, the governor-elect of Abia state, to be careful not to start his administration on a wrong footing.

“Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd.) is the big evil tree, and we, the present generation of Biafrans, are the axes that have been sharpened to cut him down. Gowon dug a pit for Biafrans, but we survived it.

“Gowon’s evil feet will never march on Biafran soil again. He will be alive, and Biafra will be actualized before his sad eyes because Biafra is coming very soon.

“Yakubu Gowon, the prayer of the wicked is an abomination in the sight of God. Who are you coming to pray to in Biafraland – A holy man, an evil man or a born-again Christian? The name of God should not come out of a bad heart.

“Hon. Alex Otti, we warn you to be careful about antagonizing Biafrans. It is surprising that even before your swearing-in ceremony, you are already bringing in enemies of Biafra into Biafraland. It seems that you want to start your administration on the wrong foot with the little time you have as a Governor under Nigeria State before Biafra emerges as a nation. Therefore, know now that our searchlight is on you”, he stated.
