Simon Ekpa, a self-acclaimed disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said the governors and other politicians in the South-East region will regret the Nigerian Army’s latest operation.
The army on Monday launched Golden Dawn, an operation which the military said was part of measures to curtail the worsening insecurity in the region.
The army disclosed this at a press conference in Awka, the Anambra State capital as soldiers and policemen paraded the streets of Owerri, the Imo State capital, in a show of force.
The 302 Artillery Regiment General Support launched ‘Exercise Golden Dawn’.
The exercise, according to the Commander 302 Artillery Regiment (General Support) Col Abdulkarim Usman, will help to combat insecurity in the state and foster inter-agency cooperation.
In his reaction, Ekpa said the army operation would only lead to regrets.
“The South-East Leaders will live to regret ever allowing military invasion of our land for the 5th time. Python dance 1&2, did it stop Biafra agitation? Uzodinma air bombardment in Imo, did it stop Biafra agitation? You can’t win this war by gun and bullet,” the Biafra agitator wrote on his known Twitter handle on Tuesday.
