Simon Ekpa appointed broadcaster on Radio Biafra, not interim leader —IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our indomitable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to confirm the directive by our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that Mazi Simon Ekpa, an illustrious son of Biafra be included among the broadcasters on the Radio Biafra platform.
We commend the effects our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on this new appointment and we must carry it to the later and not somebody claims to be appointed to over from our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
We, therefore, wish to also debunk the fake and falsehood making the rounds that Mazi Simon Ekpa had been appointed to take over Radio Biafra or the Interim Leader of IPOB.
This was a misrepresentation of facts by enemies of our struggle.
Mazi Simon Ekpa is only one of the many broadcasters on Radio Biafra whose immense contributions to the struggle are recognised.
Nobody has been appointed to take over from our leader because he will soon be out to continue with the liberation movement.
We want to reiterate that IPOB is a united, formidable and well structured family that even in the absence of our Leader things still move on smoothly.
The Directorate of State, DoS is fully in charge of affairs in IPOB and there is no vacuum whatsoever concerning the day to day running of the great movement.
We know that confusionists and the enemies of our struggle are looking for an opportunity to instigate disaffection and create crisis in IPOB especially now that our Leader is in detention but they won’t succeed.
We therefore, wish to urge the wonderful members of IPOB family as well as the general public to disregard any other information to the contrary.
Importantly too, any information purportedly coming from IPOB that does not pass through our normal channel should be disregarded.
While various contributions of members of IPOB and other Biafrans towards our liberation at this critical moment of our struggle are being appreciated, we wish to make it clear that nobody is crazy for any office.
Everybody counts in Biafra and nobody should be allowed to break our ranks.
We urge all Biafrans to remain resolute in our march towards the restoration of our Republic.
The night is far spent and the morning is almost here. We are already at the threshold of our independence. We can’t be distracted or disorganized at this moment.

Media and Publicity Secretary for IPOB
