Biafra: IPOB Denies Issuing Another Sit-At-Home Order For Friday

The Media and Publicity Secretary of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Emma Powerful on Thursday denied the news making rounds on social media that the group has ordered another sit-at-home to be observed on Friday, September 17, across the South-East zone.

The outlawed group spokesperson who made this known in a statement said that IPOB has since suspended the Monday weekly sit-at-home, urging people to disregard the deceptive rumour.

He said, some people are trying to incite the South East people against the group and has set up a task force to deal with such hooligans.

IPOB statement partly read, “We have since suspended the Monday weekly sit-at-home, and we wish to make it categorically that we are not planning any sit-at-home as being speculated, there is no other sit-at-home order on Friday.

“We understand that some miscreants living in Europe, claiming what they are not, sponsored by overzealous politicians to destroy Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, are working with the security agencies to ensure that they succeed in torturing innocent Biafrans in the name of enforcing a non-existent sit-at-home.

“We have set up a task force to deal with suchhooligans. My fellow Biafrans there is no crack in IPOB and there is no sit-at-home order again this week until the day our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will appear in court.

“Our people must therefore disregard any statement that is not from our Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful. Our intention is different from those agents making statements on IPOB orders, but they will soon regret their actions.

“IPOB has not ordered any sit-at-home on Friday because our people have suffered a lot following the one we suspended, but they were made by hoodlums to continue to observe.”
