IPOB Relaxes Sit-At-Home In S’East As Kanu Appears In Court

Listen to article

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have placed a suspension to the sit-at-home order it imposed in the South-East as its leader, Nnamdi Kanu appears in court tomorrow in an emergency court sitting.

The Eastern Updates reports that IPOB had earlier suspended its Monday sit-at-home for only days Kanu would be appearing in court after its claim that it was hijacked by hoodlums.

Contrary to its earlier order, the group in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful on Wednesday urged the people to go about their normal businesses on same day rather than asking for their solidarity.

However, it appealed to its supporters residing in Abuja, the venue of the court to come out and show their solidarity.

Powerful said ‘There will be no lockdown tomorrow in any part of Biafra land as a result of the court appearance. Biafrans resident in Biafra land, as well as visitors to Biafra land, are free to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations or intimidation.

‘We have not asked or authorized anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for tomorrow’s court appearance of our Leader. Only Biafrans and friends of Biafra in Abuja and its environs are encouraged to be at the court premises.

‘As a non-violent movement, we urge everyone to remain peaceful and law-abiding in all their conducts. Security operatives should also refrain from infringing on the fundamental rights of people who come to cheer our leader.

‘We all know that our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi is not being persecuted because of any crime other than his fight for our collective freedom. Therefore, we owe him a duty to stand by him until this darkness is over. We are all together in it.’ Powerful stated.

Meanwhile, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), on Tuesday said President Muhamma­du Buhari lacks the power to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indige­nous People of Biafra (IPOB), who is currently facing treason charges at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
