South East: Sit-at-home Rumour Debunked By IPOB

Listen to article

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have reiterated its dismissal of rumors that it instituted a one-week sit-at-home order in the South-East region.

With the rumors causing widespread tension and panic, the pro-Biafran group saw it as crucial to offer clarification in order to alleviate the situation.

For the past few days, news has been spreading throughout the region about a supposed one-week sit-at-home order, attributed to Simon Ekpa’s faction within the IPOB group.

In a statement released on Monday, Emma Powerful, the spokesperson of IPOB, responded to the situation by urging South-East residents to disregard the ‘rabble-rousers,’ asserting that there is no existence of a sit-at-home directive.

A portion of the statement read as follows, ‘The leadership of the IPOB, the Directorate of State, and the supreme leader of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to publicly disassociate IPOB from any purported call for a one-week sit-at-home for Biafrans.’

‘These clarifications have become necessary because Biafrans have sent inquiries asking if the IPOB leadership has called for a sit-at-home. IPOB is not part of such irresponsible order from government-paid agents whose agenda is to ridicule the struggle to restore Biafra sovereignty.’

‘Therefore, Biafrans should ignore the rabble-rousers. There is no sit-at-home scheduled. The purported one-week sit-at-home jingle on social media is not from IPOB. We are not in the business of issuing irresponsible and non-existent sit-at-home orders. IPOB is a responsible movement and family. Our aims and objectives are to give peace and freedom to our people not to inflict more pain on the pains Nigeria has already inflicted on us.’

‘Those who came from the back door are nothing but thieves. Thieves come to rob, kill, and destroy. The agent provocateurs are on the same mission as the Federal Government and its security agents to keep’

‘How can we be keeping our people indoors for one week at these harsh economic times in Nigeria? Our people should start reasoning. Some Federal Government agents are trying to make the South-East unattractive for our people to return to. They have failed.’

The group acknowledged that the individuals leading IPOB are intellectuals who possess the wisdom to employ diverse strategies and are averse to engaging in actions that would cause harm the populace.

‘Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu cannot indulge in anything that will increase our people’s suffering. Our people should ignore the useless one-week sit-at-home order from agents claiming to be fighting for Biafra’s freedom.’

‘Some of the foot soldiers of these Nigerian Agents in the diaspora don’t realize that they were being used by enemies of Biafra to suffer Biafrans in order to make Biafra agitation championed by Kanu’s IPOB unattractive. But their agenda is dead on arrival.’

It further stated, ‘Therefore, the public should ignore any rumors about a one-week sit-at-home in the South-East. Those behind these devilish orders are not IPOB members, and they are not working for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.’

Residents of the Southeastern region have been gripped by widespread panic as the uncertainty surrounding the potential event of the Sit-at-home continues.
