Nnamdi Kanu: Confusion As IPOB Denies Suspending Sit-At-Home Order



'Hypocrites'- IPOB Slams Northern Elders, Others For Opposing Nnamdi Kanu’s Release

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied suspending it’s Southeast sit-at-home order.

Recall that IPOB had ordered for a sit-at-home to be observed every Monday throughout the southeast region, starting from August 9, until IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is released from prison.

But in a statement on Sunday Nnamdi Manu’s brother, Kanunta, said the sit-at-home order has been suspended due to the National Examination Council (NECO) examination for junior secondary schools.

He said a new date for the commencement of the sit-at-home order would be announced later.

According to him, the order was suspended after IPOB listened to pleas from well-meaning individuals and group.

Reacting in a separate statement, IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said that the alleged Kanu’s brother who issued the statement is not IPOB’s spokesman and therefore should be ignored.

According to Powerful, “Kanu brother is not IPOB spokesperson and anybody who listens to that deceptive statement and obligated to such statement by coming out tomorrow will get it hot.”
