The Strong Politician Replacing Nnamdi Kanu At Radio Biafra

A strong Finnish politician has been appointed to replace the detained IPOB's leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the Radio Biafra station.

Following the arrest and detention of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, by the Nigerian government, the group have chosen another man to replace Nnamdi Kanu at the Radio Biafra Station to continue the broadcast that is aimed at liberating the group. 

The new replacement, Simon Ekpa, is said to be a politician in Finland. He was recently elected as a deputy councilor in his municipality.

Simon Ekpa is a chief and one of those in line to the throne as the son of the late King Nwangbo (The Ogaba Idu of Ngbo Clan). 

He is also a human rights activist and a legal researcher with a masters in law.

Simon Ekpa, a Nigerian-Finnish, revealed that he will be taking over from Mazi Nnamdi Kanu pending when their leader will be set free from the claws of the Nigerian government. He made the announcement on his official Facebook page on July 8, 2021

He said, "Our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi on this day, 8th of July 2021 directed that I, Simon Ekpa should start broadcasting from Radio Biafra with immediate effect..."

It is clear that IPOB is certainly not giving up on their agitation, even with their leader being in detention.

Do you think the new replacement, Simon Ekpa, will act in the same energy and intellect as the historic Mazi Nnamdi?
