Simon Ekpa, a self-described disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the shooting of Miss Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto.
Deborah’s murder, according to Ekpa, has exposed Atiku Abubakar, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential hopeful, and other Muslims in the country’s northern regions.
Deborah was attacked and burned alive by male Muslim students on Thursday after they accused her of disrespecting Prophet Muhammed via WhatsApp.
Ekpa reacted to the news by saying Deborah’s death had demonstrated that the North lacked true campaigners.
The pro-Biafra agitator stated in a tweet that Nigeria is divided.
According to Simon Ekpa, corruption is the only thing that holds Nigeria together.
He wrote: “Death & killing Deborah has exposed the dangerous diversity in Nig. It has exposed @atiku, @ShehuSani and many more Muslims.
“I have said it, no real activists from the North. Nigeria is already divided, the only thing that brings the south & North together is corruption. Ask @CatrionaLaing1 can this happen in UK?”
Atiku had tweeted and deleted a post regarding the gruesome murder of Deborah.
