Self-acclaimed Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government and pro-Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa, has written to the European Union and the United States of America over alleged human rights abuses carried out by Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State.
Three people were killed on Wednesday when traders took to the streets to protest the sealing of their shops by the state government for not opening for business on Monday.
Ekpa, in a letter written to the international community afterwards however demanded a visa ban on Mbah for violating the citizens’ fundamental human rights.
He added that the Enugu State government confiscated and arrested people in the state without recourse to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The letter read, “We wish to bring to your notice the gross violation and fundamental human rights abuses of the people of Enugu State, Biafra (in Southeast Nigeria) by Peter Mbah, the governor of Enugu State.
“Peter Mbah is confiscating and locking up people’s businesses and means of sustenance without recourse to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria or any chatter, treaty or convention known anywhere in the civilized world, thereby denying the people of Enugu State the right to personal property and free enterprise.
“We request that you impose a visa ban on Governor Peter Mbah and add him to the list of terrorists and haters of freedom and democracy in Nigeria.”
