One of the disciples of the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Radio Biafra, Simon Ekpa, has given 24-hour ultimatum to Channels Television, Guardian Nigeria, and other media outlets that reported that the Eastern Security Network, ESN, killed two soldiers in Enugu State.
In a statement released on his official Facebook page and obtained by Newsmen, Ekpa said Guardian Nigeria have tried to withdraw their own report but it is not enough. Today, they are reporting gunmen while yesterday they reported it was ESN.
The statement reads,
“We are giving Guardian Nigeria, Channel TV and other media houses that reported and alleged that ESN killed two soldiers yesterday in Enugu 24 hours to apologise to Biafrans, IPOB and ESN for that fake news and report. You have 24 hours to withdraw the fake report against ESN and IPOB.
“Guardian Nigeria have tried to withdraw their own report but it is not enough. Today, they are reporting gunmen while yesterday they reported it was ESN.
“Today’s rejoinder from Guardian Nigeria as can be seen from screenshots here after last night broadcast is not enough.
“I am Simon Ekpa, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s disciple on Biafra Restoration.”
Centapost had reported the Federal High Court in Abuja ordered the remand of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu till July 26, 2021 following his arrest.
The Department of State Services (DSS) took Kanu to court same day his arrest was announced.
Kanu was re-arraigned on charges bordering on alleged treason.
Justice Binta Nyako said he is to be remanded in DSS custody pending the determination of his trial.
