S’South didn’t observe sit-at-home because they lack guts, says Biafra group
The Biafra Nations League (BNL), whose operational base is in Bakassi Peninsula has given reasons why the sit-at-home that was declared by leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu recorded zero compliance in the South-South states.
Kanu, alongside the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, had ordered a sit-at-home on May 31 to mark Biafra Day.
The directive recorded total compliance in some Southern states while in others partial compliance was witnessed.
However, the Deputy National Leader of BNL and Head of Operations, BBs Media, Ebuta Takon said that many people in the South-South who believe in the struggle do not have the guts to express themselves like the Igbo people.
Takon said those who feel they are not part of Biafra, especially in some parts of Rivers State, Bayelsa, and part of Delta State, lacked knowledge and are being sponsored to overshadow those in the struggle.
In a statement he forwarded to DAILY POST, Takon said: “They feel so because they lack true knowledge of whom they are. I don’t blame them, even a sitting governor is denying his Igbo identity to claim South South because he wants to benefit from the politics of South South,” he said.
