Nnamdi Kanu, at the helm of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), asserted that there will be no clemency for individuals or groups who continue to plan the enforcement of sit-at-home orders in the South-East region.
Kanu further issued a warning, stating that any group of individuals found using his name, IPOB, or its affiliated militia arm, Eastern Security Network (ESN), to solicit funds without his authorisation will be deemed as engaging in criminal activities, and that appropriate actions against such individuals will be initiated.
Kanu’s statements was disclosed through a press release titled ‘Mother of all updates’ issued by his Special Counsel, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor. This update came after Kanu’s customary meeting on Mondays while in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Ejimakor said, ‘Today, I met with Onyendu MAZI NNAMDI KANU at the DSS. He greets you all – the faithful, loyal and honest and he instructed me (as of Counsel) to tweet the following (in quotes):
‘Any person or group of persons using my name, the name of IPOB or ESN in fundraising without my direct and express authorization is committing a crime with my name and I will deal with such person, regardless of his place of residence’.
‘The details of the Economic Empowerment Day (EED) are very comprehensive and I will personally unveil such details once I am released’.
‘The idea of endless SitAtHome has been hijacked by our oppressors as a means of rendering our land desolate and forcing our people to migrate out of our lands. They have, through enforcing the SitAtHome in Southeast, gerrymandered Igboland to now exclude the Igbos in Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Kogi, Rivers, Edo, Delta, and Benue’.
‘I will never forgive any person or group of persons still insisting on, and enforcing Sit-at-Home. I take it that such person is merely using my name to indirectly work against my release’.
