Arochukwu indigenes have reacted to Aro Okeigbo Blog post on Facebook to express themselves over the assersion or saying that Ekpo is friendly.
At the time this post was made, so many people have said that Ekpo will only be friendly to you if only you give him money, some also said that even if you give the ekpo money, if he wants to flog you, he will still do.
Also, some have said that it is abnormal for Ekpo to snap picture with people, some went further to disclose that it is because of how people now play with ekpo made them to loose interest in coming out to watch ekpo.
