No sit-at-home today as Kanu appears in court, IPOB warns.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has dismissed any plans of a lockdown in the South East following its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s scheduled appearance in court on Thursday, December 2, 2021.
It urged people residing in the South East to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations or intimidation.
IPOB enjoined Igbo people living in Abuja and its environs to come out enmasse to solidarise with its leader.
The group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said: “We have not asked or authorised anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for Thursday’s court appearance of our Leader.
“Only Biafrans and friends of Biafra in Abuja and its environs that are encouraged to be at the court premises. As a non-violent movement, we urge everyone to remain peaceful and law abiding in all their conducts. Security operatives should also refrain from infringing on the fundamental rights of people who come to cheer our leader.
“We all know that our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi is not being persecuted because of any crime other than his fight for our collective freedom. Therefore, we owe him a duty to stand by him until this darkness is over. We are all together in it.
“We commend the legal team of our Leader for their untiring efforts to defend our leader who is innocent of the charges preferred against him. We urge all Biafrans to keep praying for our leader, and the full restoration of Biafra Republic.”
