IPOB announces sit-at-home order ahead of Kanu’s trial


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced a sit-at-home order in anticipation of the trial of its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu next week.

This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, while noting it was expedient for the South-East region to display solidarity with Kanu.

Powerful said, “We are the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB under the command of our indefatigable Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Following our Leader’s upcoming court proceedings on the 18th, 19th and 20th of January 2022 next week, we wish to remind Biafrans that there will be only sit at home on 18th of January, and not 19th and 20th of January. In keeping with our avowed solidarity with our Leader, the entire Biafra land will be on lock down only on January 18 for obvious reasons.

“Biafrans should understand that 19th January is the judgment day in the suit by our Leader against the Federal Government which is pending before an Umuahia High Court. So, there will be no sit-at-home on that day.”

The secessionist group further disclosed that the order is limited to Tuesday, January 18, in order to mitigate any economic hardship while pledging to prosecute anyone who enforces the order on other days.

“Again, we don’t want to compound the pains of our people, hence, we will limit the sit-at-home to only January 18. Biafrans and residents of Biafra are free to go about their businesses without molestations on 19th and 20th January. Anybody found enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at-home on 17th, 19th and 20th is criminal and must treat as such, IPOB leadership have given order and that order is what signed. Continue Reading
