Simon Ekpa, a popular Biafra agitator and separatist, has described as fake and untrue claims making the rounds of a purported ‘Economic Empowerment ‘Day.
Ekpa, the Finland-based lawyer and Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government, disclosed this on Saturday through his verified Twitter handle.
He was reacting to a statement by the spokesman of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Emma Powerful declaring Monday as ‘Economic Empowerment Day’.
But Ekpa stressed that Igbos should disregard the claim.
He reiterated his resolve to achieve Biafra liberation and referendum.
He said: “There is nothing like economic empowerment in Biafra within Nigeria. After the two weeks sit-at-home. Since these criminals and corrupt politicians are taking us for granted, we will continue to observe civic disobedience in the Eastern region. Biafrans should wait for the announcement,” he wrote.
