Ohanaeze: IPOB warns Arewa group for advising Buhari against releasing Nnamdi Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has debunked the claim that it declared a one-week sit-at-home exercise across the South-East region.

IPOB said it was important to make the clarification due to the tension and panic the rumours have generated.

The rumoured one-week sit-at-home starting from June 3 to June 9 was declared by Simon Ekpa’s faction of the IPOB group.

IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful in a statement, however, said there is no such thing as sit-at-home.

“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.

He wondered why IPOB will be keeping their people indoors for one week especially at these harsh economic times in Nigeria.

Powerful accused Federal Government agents of trying to make the South-East unattractive for the indigenes to return there.
