The Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB have disagreed with the directive by Kanunta Kanu, Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brother following the former’s reversal of the sit at home order scheduled to commence issued by IPOB in regards to the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.
The younger Kanu had announced that owing to the fact that a number of students would miss out of partaking in the National Examination Council, NECO exams for Junior Secondary Schools, IPOB had lifted the sit at home order but in what looked like a counter statement, the spokesperson for IPOB, Emma Powerful denounced the alleged lifting of the sit at home order. He said that even though they in IPOB did understand the situation for those writing the exams, the major aim of the sit at home order was simply to ensure the release of Nnamdi Kanu and warned that anybody who defied such a warning would regret it.
He said : “We know the situation of those going for examinations tomorrow but our demand is for them to release our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Our people must understand that Fulani terrorists stopped our people from going to school for three years during the genocidal war in 1967 to 1970 and it did not kill our people and this one-day sacrifice for the release of somebody who has sacrificed a lot for our land will not kill them.
“Anybody who ventures to come out tomorrow will regret his or her life. We warn you tomorrow is total lockdown in every part of Biafra.”
Meanwhile, the Governor of Ebonyi State has called on the people of his state to defy the order and go about their lawful business.
