The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Tuesday, distanced himself from sit-at-home in the Southeast.
IPOB initially ordered the sit-at-home in the Southeast to push for the release of its leader from detention by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The order of the agitating group was, however, taken over by miscreants who employed the time to carry out illegal acts.
Kanu, while speaking on sit-at-home in the region said rebels are behind the order in the region.
The IPOB leader stated this during his meeting with his legal team led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, at the DSS facility in Abuja.
Kanu denied ordering a sit-at-home after his self-acclaimed disciple based in Finland, Simon Ekpa ordered a five-day sit-at-home.
Ejiofor in a statement said, “Kanu unequivocally stated that he has not ordered any sit-at-home.
“He directs that all our people should go about their normal life and businesses without let or hindrance so as not to destroy the socio-economic life of our people, which have become the envy of all.
“Destructive activities of some hired marauders who are presently exploiting the temporary absence of Onyendu to cause untold mayhem, vandalism and calamity on our sacred ancestral lands were thoroughly discussed.
“Onyendu reiterated and emphasised his long-held position of distancing himself and his IPOB movement from the illegal and nefarious activities of these God-forsaken elements who mean no well for the Ndigbo and Alaigbo.”
