Social media company, Twitter, has locked the Twitter account of controversial Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that Ekpa was sanctioned for alleged incitement of violence in Nigeria from his base abroad.
Checks by Bellnews Online.com on Ekpa’s known Twitter account which has over 60, 000 followers showed that his last tweet activity was on Tuesday afternoon – atypical of him.
Several persons averse to Ekpa’s agenda are believed to have petitioned Twitter, as Ekpa uses the platform to pursue the Biafra cause and lately, declared a five-day sit-at-home.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that the five-day sit-at-home which ended on Wednesday was bloody in Imo, Enugu and Ebonyi states.
Ekpa, who described himself as a disciple of now-detained IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kani, is widely-perceived as toxic and the mastermind of the nefarious activities of the so-called ‘Unknown Gunmen’ in Nigeria’s southeast region.
Although he claims to be a resident of Finland, Bellnewsonline.com cannot independently verify this.
Meanwhile, Nigerians from all over the world are signing a petition urging the Finnish government, the Nigerian government, and the European Union (EU) to immediately arrest Ekpa over his alleged involvement in the recent horrific sit-at-home in the southeast.
