Why we suspended Monday indefinite sit-at-home order —IPOB


The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has suspended the weekly sit-at-home order it imposed following the arrest of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

The suspension was announced by the IPOB Head of Directorate of State of the Indigenous people of Biafra.

Reacting to the suspension, IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said expressed understanding for the concern being expressed by the global IPOB family.

Comrade Powerful said: “We know that our people embraced this civil action wholeheartedly and without any compulsion.

“The leadership sincerely appreciate the innate desire of Biafrans to sacrifice their time, resources and energy in ensuring that our leader Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released unconditionally from the illegal custody of the Nigerian State who criminally renditioned him from Kenya to Nigeria.

“The suspension of the Sit-At-Home by the IPOB Head of Directorate was as a result of a direct order from the leader of this great movement Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“There is no gain saying the fact that one of the major fundamental guiding principle of IPOB is Command and Control.

“This simply means that all command from the Supreme leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) will be obeyed and implemented to the latter by the Directorate of State of the Indigenous people of Biafra.

“Bearing in mind therefore that this principle has enabled this movement to surpass even the expectations of both Biafrans and non-Biafrans alike, the leadership wish to encourage Biafran to focus on the most pressing issue confronting this great family presently which is ensuring the safety of our leader while still in the illegal custody of the DSS and to secure his unconditional release from detention.”

The IPOB scribe, however, informed that the sit-at-home order will in the meantime be observed on the date of Nnamdi Kanu’s Court appearances In accordance with his directives.

The lPOB leadership urged Biafrans worldwide to take note of Kanu’s next court appearance which is the 21st of October 2021.

“If however we have any reason or directive from the IPOB highest command that require us to reactivate the suspended weekly sit-at-home, the leadership will not hesitate to lift the suspension and continue with the our civil action.

“The leadership once more appreciate all Biafrans and our friends and sympathizers who faithfully observed the Monday August 9 Sit-At-Home which was a huge success throughout Biafra land.

“May God continue to bless and uphold all those committed to our struggle.

“We consider Biafra restoration as a sacrosanct call to duty above all else.

“Any other information regarding sit-at-home in Biafraland not emanating from IPOB through our main channels of information dissemination should be disregarded,” Powerful stated.

He urged the Nigeria Government to heed to the voice of reason coming from within Nigeria and from outside the shores of Nigeria to unconditionally free Nnamdi Kanu.

He also asked the Government to announce a date for Biafra referendum or plebiscite to enable people choose where they wish to belong “before it is too late”.
