IPOB Speaks On Purported One Week Sit-At-Home In South East

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied issuing a declaration for a one-week sit-at-home exercise in the South-East region.

Rumors have been circulating on social media and throughout the area regarding a scheduled sit-at-home from July 3 to July 10.

The promoters of an audio message, titled “#FreeNnamdiKanu,” claimed that the purpose of the exercise was to pressure the Federal Government into releasing IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services.

However, IPOB spokesperson Emma Powerful issued a statement on Wednesday, refuting the audio message and distancing the pro-Biafran group from its origins. Powerful emphasized that the message did not originate from IPOB and stated,

“You should know those people declaring the fake sit-at-home, and the criminal who is illegally destroying our land”

He further added that an official press release would be issued two days prior to the declared date in the audio message. Nevertheless, the IPOB leadership has advised against giving it attention or recognition at this time.

Previously, in 2021, IPOB initially declared every Monday as a sit-at-home day in the South-East to protest the imprisonment of their leader. However, they later announced the cancellation of the weekly exercise. Nonetheless, people in the region have continued to observe it.
