Simon Ekpa has said he doesn’ t want to have anything to do with Nigeria anymore. He stated that he represented Nigeria in 2003 and he was given an award for representing his country. Meanwhile, he has vowed to work against Nigeria’ s interest. On Saturday, Simon Ekpa stated that he would not get himself involved in anything that does not promote the interest of Biafra.
After he made the statement, many news platforms published the report on their media channels. After the news was published on Facebook by Punch News, many Nigerians took to the comment section to blast Simon Ekpa for making a negative statement about Nigeria. After Simon Ekpa stated that he would return all awards he has ever received back to Nigeria, a media user identified as Sani Garba took to the comment section to reply to him.
According to Sani Garba, he said ” You should return it to Kanu the Terrorist now living inside the zoo he so much like, he will appreciate it. Also, that you disown Nigeria, stop using it in your passport, use Biafraud. ” Another media user who doesn’ t seem to agree or support Simon Ekpa s statement stated that he hopes Simon Ekpa returns the money he received alongside the award. ”
The media user identified as Giwa Adeyemi Yusuf stated that ” I hope you’ ll return the money that comes with these awards and medals too. I hate extremists ideologies, As of today, until Biafra is declared a sovereign state you remain a Nigeria, and there is nothing you can do about it, you can also do well to return the Nigerian passport you use to travel all around the world. ”
Another media user Michael Odeh said ” Who cares, he should throw it into the sea that’ s his business. Nigeria is bigger than every individual, Ekpa rubbish medal means nothing to Nigerians. He shouldn’ t forget to return the whole money he made throughout his career. ”
