The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB)has reiterated that the Mondays sit-at-home order is sacrosanct for all Biafrans and friends of Biafra.
In a statement from the IPOB spokesman -Emma Powerful, “the entire Biafra land will be locked down every Monday from 6:00am to 6:00pm beginning from tomorrow, Aug 9, 2021 until our leader, Nnamdi Kanu who was abuducted in Kenya and brought to Nigeria and locked up in DSS dungeon in clear violation of international laws is freed.
“Consequently, there will be no movement throughout Biafra land on Mondays until our leader who is suffering for our freedom is released. This protest is peaceful but firm. “Everybody is advised to stay indoors in total compliance.”
The statement directed “All markets, schools, motor parks, airports, and public places in Biafra land should shut down from morning to evening every Monday. We understand the economic implications of this measure but we are constrained to take it so that the world will know that our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not alone in the struggle for Biafra autonomy.
“We want his immediate release and our total freedom, and cannot hesitate to pay any sacrifice needed to achieve this including locking down the entire Biafra land on Mondays.
“All residents and visitors in Biafra land are advised to comply with the order. Nobody should go out to avoid any clash or intimidation by the wicked Nigeria security agents”.
The Anambra state government has in consequence of the IPOB directive mandated all civil servants in its employ to ensure they report for duty tomorrow.
The government insisted that anyone who absents himself would be severely punished.
