Uzodimma To FG, Military: Bring Simon Ekpa To Nigeria To Sit At Home With Us 

The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has emphasized the importance of restoring peace and ending insurgency in the South-East. He has also supported the demand for the extradition of Simon Ekpa, a separatist based in Finland, for issuing an illegal sit-at-home order in the region on Mondays.

This came a day after the Senate condemned the order under the enforcement of a faction of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), appealing to the Federal Government to collaborate with the Finnish Government to extradite Ekpa to Nigeria for prosecution.

Uzodimma disclosed this on Friday during a familiarisation visit from the new General Officer Commanding 82 Division, Enugu, Major General Hassan Dada, at the Government House in Owerri.

“What is topmost in our cases is this popular sit-at-home order. There’s one man called Simon Ekpa somewhere in Finland,” he said.

“It is our hope that the security agencies, particularly the military, working with the Federal Government, will be able to either bring Simon Ekpa back to Nigeria to also sit at home with us or be made to face the wrath of the law.”

He also spoke on the negative effect of the illegal sit-at-home orders, promising the new GOC and his team his support and that of the people of Imo State.
