The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has made a public announcement that the South East region will observe a ” Sit- At- Home home” on Tuesday, September 13.
Emma Powerful, the spokesperson for the organization, stated that was declared as a Sit- At- Home to show support for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the group, who is scheduled to appear in court.
The pro- Biafran group added that the day will be used to protest as President Buhari planned to visit Imo State on the same day.
He said, ” Declaring Tuesday as a day for civil action in the form of Sit- At- Home in Biafra is very important for two reasons: First, Our Leader’ s Appeal court hearing that was supposed to be on October 11th has been brought forward to 13th September 2022.
” As usual we call on Biafrans and lovers of freedom to demonstrate our solidarity with our leader who is bearing our yoke in detention for over a year now. IPOB never issued a new directive to Biafrans but is simply implementing an existing order to lock down Biafra Land any day the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra will appear in court at Abuja.
” There shall be a TOTAL LOCKDOWN of the whole of Biafraland on Tuesday the 13th of September 2022. The Imposter Buhari cannot be coming to Imo State while he continues to detain our leader Mazi Nnamdi in the DSS custody.
