The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said that the leader of the group, Nnamdi Kanu, did not order Southeasterners to sit-at-home on 4th day of October, 2022
IPOB stated this via a statement issued yesterday.
Ejiofor urged members of the public to go about their normal activities and ignore the said directive.
Ejiofor went on to dismiss speculations that Kanu will appear at Federal High Court Umuahia, Abia State, next Tuesday when a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed on his behalf is scheduled to be held.
This is as the group stated that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar was not capable of stopping the IPOB movement.
This declaration is in response to a statement credited to Atiku claiming he would stop Biafra agitation if he becomes Nigerian President.
The group warned the Waziri against mentioning it’s name in any campaign in the Southeast.
Ejiofor said: “Let the members of the general public be properly informed and appropriately guided, that we have the firm instruction of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to inform the public, lovers of freedom and UmuChineke, that Onyendu will not be coming to court on the 4th day of October, 2022.
“As such, Onyendu neither directed, approved nor authorised anyone to declare a sit-at-home on that date.
“Members of the general public are advised to go about their normal business activities on this said date.
“This clarification has become compelling and necessary, in view of the avalanche of misleading information on the social media, and plethora of calls I have received from concerned UmuChineke to this effect.
“It is to be noted too, that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has several suits pending against the Federal Government of Nigeria, her agencies and officials, in various courts across the Country.”
