Tension and Fear in the Southeast as IPOB Sit-at-Home Order begin.

IPOB had announced the sit-at-home order as a measure to push for the release of its incarcerated leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu is currently cooling his heels in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, following his rearrest and repatriation from an African country suspected to be Kenya.

The IPOB leader was abducted in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria for calling for Nigeria’s disintegration and restoration of Biafra.

His rearrest and repatriation to Nigeria has been a subject of intense argument as his followers believed that he was abducted and subjected to extraordinary rendition from Kenya.

Amid his continued detention, IPOB had vowed to shut down the whole of Southeast every Monday until Kanu is released.

But, Kanu’s brother, Kanunta had announced the suspension of the sit-at-home order due to students in the Southeast participating in the National Examination Council, NECO, examination for senior secondary schools.

He had said a new date for the protest would be communicated later.

However, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful urged Nigerians to disregard the remark by Kanunta.

Powerful warned people of the Southeast against flouting the directive

Frowning at the order, the Anambra State Police Command had vowed to tackle IPOB members who threatened people of the state to comply with the order.

State police commissioner, CP Chris Awolabi who spoke to news reporters that his men are working underground to thwart the order.

“If you are in Anambra, you will know what we have been doing. IPOB is a proscribed group, what do you want me to say about them? We are working.

“I do not believe in coming to the media to do my work, but if you are in Anambra, you would have seen what we are doing. We are working on that,” Awolabi said.

Also, the Anambra State Government had warned civil servants in the state against complying with the order.

The state government had warned that civil servants would not be paid their August salary, if they obeyed the sit-at-home directive.

On his part, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State cautioned IPOB against destabilizing the economy, progress, and peace of the state and Southeast.

Umahi ordered security agencies to protect the citizens from any form of molestation.

However, popular rights activist, Deji Adeyanju commended IPOB for the move.

Adeyanju noted that boycotts are one of the effective ways of protest, stressing that Martin Luther King used such measures during their time.

“I commend IPOB for the sit at home order for tomorrow as a protest to demand for the release of Nnamdi Kanu. Boycott is one of the most effective ways of protest. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement used this means effectively.

“If IPOB goes on the street to protest peacefully, the Army will kill them. They want to sit at home and protest, some of you are still talking rubbish. Are you people mad in this country?,” Adeyanju tweeted.

BREAKING: IPOB Suspends Sit-at-Home Order

IPOB stated that a new date for the commencement of the sit-at-home order would be announced later.

The pro-Biafra group had a penultimate week, in what appeared to be in solidarity with its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, ordered for sit-at-home that would be observed every Monday throughout Igbo land, starting from August 9, until the IPOB leader is released.

‘Allowing the sit-at-home to go ahead as earlier announced, in the face of the NECO Exam would amount to assisting enemies of Biafra to inflict more injuries on her children.

The statement further explained that the sit-at-home order has not been cancelled, but only suspended for the sake of Biafra students taking this year’s NECO examination and called on IPOB members to await further directives.

“As a group fighting for the liberation of her people from oppression from her enemies, we realized that it would amount to assisting the said enemies to inflict more harm on our children if we do not suspend the sit-at-home order to allow Biafra students to take their exams”
