Biafra: I Didn’t Collect Money To Suspend ‘Sit-At-Home’ – Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer

Aloy Ejimakor, a lawyer representing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has denied collecting money to support the suspension of 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 released last week by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB, through its Head of Directorate of State, Chika Edoziem, announced the suspension of the order.

Powerful stated that the sit-at-home would be declared whenever Kanu will be making an appearance in court as against the every Monday directive.

He added that IPOB had taken into cognizance the concerns expressed by Biafrans all over the world over the suspension of the sit-at-home directive.

Following the suspension, some IPOB members are accusing Kanu’s lawyers of collecting bribes to support the decision to halt the Monday ‘Sit-at-home’.

But in a tweet via his Twitter page, Ejimakor said the allegations are meant to cause friction among IPOB members.

He, however, appealed to IPOB members not to let fake news cause crisis in the group, urging them to know the difference between fake and authentic news.

He wrote; “Does it make any sense to say that “the Lawyers collected money to suspend the Sit At Home”?”

“Do the Lawyers have such powers? Can’t you see that these allegations are aimed at setting the house against itself?”

“Shine your eyes, be smart & separate the apples from the oranges.
