IPOB Bows To Pressure, Cancels Sit-At-Home Order


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied involvement in the frequent enforcement of a sit-at-home exercise in the South-East, saying it will deal with the hoodlums behind it.

The group in a press release by its publicity secretary, Emma Powerful said it has no hand in the enforcement of the exercise, which it had long suspended.

The press statement reads: “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to reiterate once again, that we have no other sit-at-home order after 14th September.

“Any other purported sit-at-home including the suspended weekly sit-at-home on Mondays does not exist in the dairy of IPOB. In fact, after September 14, there is no other sit-at-home this week. Any contrary news or speculations to this effect should be ignored.

“Anybody trying to enforce any sit-at-home order using the name of IPOB is a saboteur and does so at his peril.

“If we catch anybody disturbing the peace of Biafrans or residents in Biafra land under the guise of enforcing a non-existent sit-at-home order, such a person will regret his actions because he will receive the reward of traitors.
