The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has vowed never to forgive anybody or any element still enforcing the sit-at-home in the Southeast.
According to Kanu, individuals who are enforcing the sit-at-home rule are indirectly hindering my release.
He lamented that the sit-at-home was hijacked by oppressors to render the Southeast desolate.
Kanu made this disclosure during his routine meeting with his legal team-led by his Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor.
Tweeting, Ejimakor wrote: ‘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 a person, regardless of his place of residence.
‘The details of Economic Empowerment Day (EED) are very comprehensive and I will personally unveil such details once I am released.
‘The idea of endless sit-at-home 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 sit-at-home 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 a person is merely using my name to indirectly work against my release.’
Meanwhile, the South-Eastern region will begin observing every Monday as an ‘Economic empowerment day,’ following the declaration made by the IPOB with the aim of bolstering economic opportunities.
With respect to the negative consequences brought about by the incessant sit-at-home protests on the region’s economic, educational, and social aspects, the pro-Biafran group has outlined its mission to empower the people in resource mobilisation and remedial measures.
Emma Powerful, the spokesperson for the group, related this message in an official statement on Saturday.
