The Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams has warned Simon Ekpa who heads a faction of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to leave Lagos out of his sit-at-home protest.
Earlier, Ekpa had said the sit-at-home protest will be activated in Lagos State just as it is being done in South East.
According to him, the sit-at-home is part of actions to demand the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
But reacting to Ekpa’s plans, Gani Adams warned him to desist from his propaganda, saying he was merely “repeating the mistake of the 1970s”
He maintained that the sit-at-home was uncalled-for and counterproductive.
Adams also warned that the South-West is not part of “the Biafra Republic’ and as such, it was preposterous for “outsiders to dictate or impose their agenda on people of other regions who they cohabit with as residents.”
He said, “I can’t go to the South East now and say I want to decide for the people of that region. So, it is not possible to import the South-East agenda into Yorubaland. It would be counter-productive. We advise him (Ekpa) to drop that idea.
“He should not try that. The South West is not Biafra Republic. Any attempt to impose the Biazsfra Republic agenda will be resisted. He should desist from repeating the mistake of the 1970s. He should be very, very careful.
“They are entitled to their opinion, but South West is not their Biafran region. He should be very, very careful,” he said.
