Ex-Nigerian athlete Simon Ekpa pledges allegiance to IPOB, vows to return medal

Simon Ekpa, an athlete who represented Nigeria at the 2003 African Junior Athletics Championships, has declared his allegiance to the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Ekpa denounced Nigeria and vowed to return the medal he won for the country.

He made his decision public in a Facebook post on Sunday, adding that leaders have failed the country.

He also vowed to “put everything I have to the disintegration of Nigeria”.

The Biafra agitator said this while reacting to a letter he claimed he received from the Institute of Management Consultants , Nigeria, nominating him for a fellowship.

Ekpa posted, “I reject your nomination publicly, this is the second time the IMC-Nigeria is nominating me for whatever reason. I am not interested in your nomination, I am not interested in your award, I am not interested in anything that will move Nigeria forward because Nigeria is not structured nor created to move forward, so anybody trying to move Nigeria forward is already a failure.

“…I will be returning every award given to me in Nigeria by Nigeria state or organisation within Nigeria acting in the capacity of representing Nigeria, including medal given to me by Nigeria will be returned to the Ministry of Sports Abuja in the nearest future.

“I am Simon Ekpa, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Disciple on Biafra Restoration.”
