The Biafra Nations League (BNL) has asked the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to suspend it’s sit-at-home across the southeast.
In a joint statement sent to Naija News on Monday by the National Leader of BNL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, the Deputy National Leader, Ebuta Akor Takon and Chief of General Staff and Leader of Displaced Bakassi Peninsula Youths, Linus Essien, the group urged IPOB to allow students to write their exams.
According to the pro-Biafra group, the every Monday sit at home and that planned for tomorrow, Tuesday, was meaningless to the Biafran struggle.
While noting that it is not against the exercise on the said date of Nnamdi Kanu’s appearance in court,BNL said: “Anything that will frustrate our people instead of the government, we will not support it, we keep saying that the sit at home is not affecting the government, they’re not loosing anything, declaring sit at home for operations python dance is meaningless, they should also consider the fact that West African Examination is ongoing. They shouldn’t sit abroad to frustrate those at home”.
The Biafra group added that the sit at home is not the kind of action that affects the Federal government and the economy of Nigeria “but an exercise to honour heroes“.
The group advised IPOB apply much pressure directly against the government and not through the residents of the South East States.
Meanwhile, the comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State has been invaded by gunmen believed to be members of IPOB.
It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the school premises to stop students from writing their examinations.
The gunmen invaded the school while students were preparing for the English Language paper of the Junior Secondary School Examination.
The incident saw teachers and students run to safety as the gunmen shot sporadically into the air to disperse them.
