Flyers and posters informing inhabitants of the South-East that the sit-at-home exercise has been called off have been distributed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
On Saturday, Emma Powerful, a spokesman for the pro-Biafran group, said that the decision was made per Nnamdi Kanu’s order.
Also, he said, the sit-at-home tactic of civil disobedience would never again be used by the group in its struggle for autonomy.
The statement read, “This is to inform Biafrans about the flyers and posters being distributed all over the South-East conveying our leader’s famous pronouncement canceling Monday sit-at-home, and to inform the good people of Biafrans that sit at home is not only dead, but will never again be invoked or deployed as a tool of civil disobedience in our quest for self determination.”
“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 Biafraland, and that anyone caught enforcing this illegal and non-existent Monday sit-at-home will be apprehended and summarily dealt with on the spot.
“These criminal individuals are not trying to free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is being held unlawfully by the DSS in solitary confinement in Abuja, Nigeria, or to restore Biafra.
“Those purporting to be running a Biafra Government in Exile group from somewhere in Finland also known as Autopilot are not IPOB members and their activities do not represent the views of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the rank and file IPOB membership or the ESN operatives,” the IPOB statement reads.
“Moreo, it is a disgrace to the memories of our heroic martyrs who died for the emancipation of Biafra that persons who have never led ordinary street protest in Biafraland or anywhere in the world in support of Biafra restoration can claim to lead our people. This is a complete and total scandal.
Do not associate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or the Indigenous People of the Biafra (IPOB) with the fake social media scam named Government in exile (Autopilot).
All Biafrans have a duty to defend Biafraland from government-backed agents and armed criminal gangs operating under the guise of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and Biafra.
Flyers and banners depicting the requiem liturgy for the pointless Monday sit-in should be distributed throughout communities, hinterlands, and cities in Biafraland with the cooperation of Biafrans.
“Death awaits anyone who is caught imposing a stay-in. The criminal from Finland is not your savior.
