Simon Ekpa, a staunch disciple of the embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has enjoined all supporters of Biafra freedom to update their social media using his principal as profile pictures ahead of his trial.
This is just as the legal icon declared a sit-at-home order for all Igbos, particularly the supporters of Biafra agitation.
The directive, according to Ekpa, is to show solidarity for the fugitive who is expected to appear before the Federal High Court, Maitama Abuja on Monday (today).
Ekpa, who also holds a Finnish passport, gave the order via a tweet on his official Twitter handle.
"Everyone in Biafraland must observe sit at home today in solidarity with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra. Today, Biafra goes to court.
"All Biafrans and lovers of freedom on Social Media are hereby advised to change their profile pictures to that of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for just this day 26th day of July 2021".
Recall that Ekpa was recently removed as the head of Radio Biafra by IPOB.
According to IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, Kanu's disciple was fired for insubordination and refusal to follow laid down rules of operation in Radio Biafra.
