Before Nnamdi Kanu’ s arrest, Simon Ekpa have been running an online TV programme on his Facebook page, where he mirrored Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’ s agitations.

To many, Simon Ekpa is a wise choice as a successor to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and he may be the one to finish the work Nnamdi Kanu stated.

Nnamdi Kanu was arrested under yet to be disclosed circumstances in Kenya, and repatriated to Nigeria. There is still deliberations and arguments, over the legality of the arrest and repatriation, since he was travelling with a British passport, and should have been repatriated to Britain not Nigeria, sparking the accusations even from literary giant, Wole Soyinka, that Nnamdi Kanu was kidnapped.

Another secsssion agitator, Sunday Igboho is also currently on the run, hunted by the agents of the State Security Service DSS, over allegations of gun running.

A raid on his Ibadan residence, allegedly produced large cache of arms and ammunition.

Igboho have denied ownership of the weapons, insisting that it was an attempt to frame him up because of his agitation for an independent Republic of Oduduwa.

Attempts by a Yoruba traditional ruler, to get Igboho to stop his agitation, as a way to get clemency, was rebuffed by Igboho, who insist that he was not going back on his agitation.
