IPOB Urges South East Residents To Go About Their Legitimate Businesses

On Wednesday, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) announced that there would be no sit-at-home demonstration in the South-East on Thursday.

Nnamdi Kanu, the group’s leader, is scheduled to appear in Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday for the continuation of his trial for suspected treasonable crime.

On November 10, Justice Binta Nyako postponed the case’s hearing until January 19, 2022.

On Wednesday, Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, told journalists that the court had approved his client’s request to expedite the hearing.

Despite the fact that the IPOB’s weekly sit-at-home edict in the South-East had been suspended, the group claimed that the directive would continue on the days Kanu appeared in court.

Despite its leader’s scheduled appearance before the judge on Thursday, the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued a statement on Wednesday directing the residents of the region to go about their legitimate business.

The statement read: “We wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will be in court tomorrow, December 2, 2021, in Abuja. We, therefore, urge Biafrans living in Abuja and its environs to come out en masse to solidarize with our leader.

“Meanwhile, there will be no lockdown tomorrow in any part of Biafra land as a result of the court appearance. Biafrans residents in Biafra land, as well as visitors to Biafra land, are free to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestation or intimidation.

“We have not asked or authorised anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for tomorrow’s court appearance of our leader. Only Biafrans and friends of Biafra in Abuja and its environs are encouraged to be at the court premises.”
