Anambra Community Warns Simon Ekpa Over Threat to Igwe's Life

Anambra Simon Ekpa Igbo
Igwe of Aguleri
Aguleri community in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State has cautioned Simon Ekpa and his cohorts over his social media attacks and threat to life on their traditional ruler, Igwe Micheal Idigo.

They gave the warning during a joint press briefing held by Aguleri Community Assembly, traditional prime minister and royal cabinet, Ndi Ichie and Ojiana of the community at Isabanka Palace, Aguleri

Speaking through the President General of Aguleri Community Assembly, Barrister Ifeanyi Iloakasia, the community said Mr Ekpa threatened to shave the heads of Ndi Igwe Aguleri with blunt objects for visiting the leader of the Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through his solicitor, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor to direct people against the illegal Sit-at-home orders.

Barrister Iloakasia clarified that the traditional ruler of Aguleri, Igwe Dr Idigo was misidentified by Mr Ekpa for Eze Chukwuemeka Eri, the traditional ruler ị of Enugwu-Aguleri, a quasi-autonomous community within the larger Aguleri community.

He stated Igwe Idigo did not at any time visit Mazi Kanu at Abuja alone or in company of anybody but instead that it was Eze Eri that visited the IPOB leader and addressed the media after the visit.

The President General, however, maintained that Eze Eri as Aka Ji Ovo Igbo and as a concerned stakeholder in the South East has the right to visit Mazi Kanu and to make public statements without being subjected to unwarranted insults or threats.

He, therefore, said that the press briefing was to caution Simon Ekpa and his cohorts and to tell them that Aguleri as a community did not take their threats likely.

Later, the traditional ruler of Aguleri, Igwe Idigo described the security situation in the South East as a regrettable, saying that there cannot be any meaningful development in an atmosphere of insecurity.

The traditional ruler, therefore, called on the citizenry in the South East to work together towards eliminating the present unpalatable security situation.

He also called on the federal government to show clear indications that the claims of marginalization against the South East is not justified by coming up with inclusive policies that will give the region its due recognition and for the unconditional release of Mazi Kanu who has been acquitted by a competent court of law.
