UPDATE: IPOB Takes Fresh Actions To End Sit-At-Home In South-East

The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) have started distributing leaflets and posters around villages to inform residents in an effort to put a stop to the contentious and bloody sit-at-home exercise in the South-East region of Nigeria.

This is happening while the pro-Biafra activists continue to demand their removal from the sit-at-home protest, which they claim has been hijacked by some people.

The embattled leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, reiterated this sentiment when he said that the ongoing sit-at-home order was an ugly chapter in the organization’s history that should never be repeated in a message made accessible to newsmen over the weekend.

The distribution of flyers, according to Powerful’s statement, was done to spread word of Kanu’s decision to call off Monday’s sit-at-home protest.

The statement reads: “Any person or persons talking about a non-existent sit-at-home in the southeast is an enemy of the people and shall be dealt with accordingly.

“The exercise also aims to inform the people that sit-at-home is not only “dead” but will also never again be invoked or deployed as a tool of civil disobedience in the group’s quest for self-determination.”

While affirming that it was Kanu’s directive to notify the locals of IPOB’s position, Powerful issued a warning that anyone again advocating sit-at-home in Igbo land would be treated as an enemy of the people and would face the consequences.

The statement added: “It is to be stated for the umpteenth time, for those who may feign ignorance of the laws governing the conduct expected of IPOB family worldwide, that our supreme leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has ordered the permanent end to Monday sit-at-home in the south-east.

“Anybody seen enforcing this illegal and non-existent Monday sit-at-home will be apprehended and summarily dealt with on the spot.

“The criminal elements are not working for IPOB nor the release of Kanu, who is detained in the DSS solitary confinement in Abuja.

“Those purporting to be running a Biafra Government in Exile, from somewhere in Finland, also known as Autopilot, are not IPOB members and their activities do not represent the views of Kanu, rank and file IPOB membership nor ESN operatives.

“It is a shame to the memory of our late members who gave their lives for the IPOB struggle that individuals that never led ordinary street protests in the southeast or anywhere in the world in support of IPOB can claim to lead our people.

“This is an absolute disgrace,” Powerful stressed.

He added: “These shameless parasites” and their sponsors were hoping that mere attachment of the names – Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB and ESN – to their criminal enterprise would provide legitimacy to continue duping the gullible.

“The social media – Biafra Government in Exile (BGIE) has nothing to do with IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“ Kanu has nothing to do with them and will never have anything to do with them.

“ IPOB does not have any government in exile and will never have any government in exile.

“People that never led a protest anywhere in the world were never detained or held meetings with any international bodies can never claim to represent our people.

“We, therefore, encourage people of the southeast to help in the distribution of the flyers, and posters to communities, hinterlands, and cities in the region, signifying the requiem mass for the senseless Monday sit-at-home.

“We warn once again that anybody apprehended enforcing any sit-at-home will regret his life and the self-acclaimed leader of BGIE will not save such a person,” the group noted.
