The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday said it is not issuing a sit-at-home order on Tuesday 4th of October 2022.
This, it said, is in spite of the fact that it is going to court to challenge the Nigerian government’s “illegal abduction and extraordinary rendition of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria.”
It explained that since the IPOB leader is not appearing physically in court, there is no need for any sit-at-home.
According to the statement by IPOB Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, “the 4th of October 2022 is a day when IPOB is going to challenge evil Nigeria Government over the illegal abduction and extraordinary rendition of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria.
“Nigeria Government must provide evidence to the world on how and why they kidnapped and renditioned our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU to Nigeria at Umuahia High Court.
“Yes that day is his court date but he is not appearing in court on that day. Therefore, there will be *NO* sit-at-home on that day.
“We want every Biafran both home and in diaspora to ignore such rumours, and anybody who is responsible for peddling this kind of falsehood should stop it immediately. IPOB leadership has not authorized such purported order.
“IPOB is watching those with such mindsets who suffer our people. They will regret their actions soon.
“Anybody who contributes to the death of our people will pay dearly whether he or she is security personnel, civilian, religious leader, man, woman, including the politicians who contribute in small or big measure to ensure that our people incur human, and material losses. They will all pay dearly.”
