The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that its usual Monday sit-at-home order remains cancelled.
Recall that the sit-at-home order was cancelled recently ahead of the just concluded Anambra State gubernatorial election.
According to IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, the only day for sit-at-home will be observed in Biafra land is when their leader Nnamdi Kanu is appearing in court, any other day should be ignored by the eastern people.
Powerful further stated in a statement released on Thursday, that anyone found to be enforcing the sit-at-home order across the Southeast is an agent of the Department of State Services, DSS and would be dealt with, if caught.
The statement read, “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our prophet and liberator Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to reiterate once again that IPOB has cancelled the Monday sit-at-home order and anybody or group enforcing the relaxed order is neither from IPOB nor from IPOB volunteer groups.
“We are advising our people to ignore anybody enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at-home order and go about their normal business because such person(s) are working for our enemies and their intention is to blackmail IPOB and set the movement against the people but they won’t succeed. Anyone caught adding to the pain of our people in the name of enforcing Monday’s sit-at-home order will be treated as the enemy that he or she is.
“We, therefore, warn these agents of darkness using the name of IPOB to enforce a non-existent sit-at-home to desist because if we lay hold on them they will eternally regret their evil actions. Why should such unpatriotic elements be inflicting pain on our people and dragging our image to the mud? IPOB remains a non-violent movement and our peaceful approach for Biafra restoration has not changed.
“It will be recalled that IPOB leadership called for the Monday Sit-At-Home and the same IPOB leadership has cancelled it. Nobody has the power to enforce the same suspended sit-at-home using the name of IPOB.
