Kanu Never Advocated For Sit-at-Home – Lawyer Ozekhome

Listen to article

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has reiterated his demand for an immediate cessation of the periodic sit-at-home protests in the South Eastern part of the nation.

Kanu’s message was communicated via a video where he was represented by one of his lawyers, Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

The video surfaced on Monday when Dan Nwomeh, the Senior Special Assistant, Mainstream Media to Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State, uploaded it on his Twitter handle.

Kanu, as cited by Ozekhome, firmly stated his opposition to the sit-at-home tactic, asserting that he cannot advocate for his people’s welfare while also disrupting their economic.

‘As his lead counsel and lawyer, he has told me that he does not believe in it (Sit-at-home); he can not be fighting for his people and shutting down their economy. How do they feed? How will they train their children? Many a time, he cried to me in my presence that he wants to be released so that he can hold a world press conference and address the Igbo and Ala Igbo and the entire world to say.’

‘Don’t stay at home on Mondays, go about your normal duties, go to work; because the Bible tells us it is upon the labour of your hands, I will bless the fruits of your labour.’

‘So, I am now re-echoing again and again what Nnnamdi Kanu has told me, ‘He does not believe in that sit-at-home on Mondays,’ which cripples the social, economic, social, cultural and political life of the people, putting them under psychological, psychical and mental stricture and torture,’ Ozekhome spoke on behalf of Kanu.

In a different development, Eastern Updates sighted photos featuring Enugu State Governor, Mr. Peter Mbah, flanked by a legion of security operatives, as they enforced the sealing of establishments that were heeding the sit-at-home order at a market area.

Prior to this, he strongly advised the residents of the state not to follow the illegal directive, noting that failure to adhere to the warning could lead to the forfeiture of their operating licenses in the region.
