IPOB declares Sit-at-home order on Thursday October 21st, 2021 to honour Nnamdi Kanu's trial

The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has declared a sit-at-home order on Thursday October 21st, 2021.

According to a statement, the Sit-at-home order is to honour IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who will be tried on that day.

The IPOB also debunked rumours that it declared a sit-at-home order on Wednesday 20th October, 2021 to honour #EndSARS protesters who were killed by the Buhari regime in 2020.

The statement reads:

"The attention of IPOB has been drawn to the fabricated statement being circulated by mischief makers and paid agents of darkness that IPOB had directed Biafrans to sit-at-home Monday, October 18; Tuesday, October 19; and Thursday, October 21 for our leader, and one-year anniversary of#EndSARS protest.

“We want to make it categorically clear that the above purported statement did not emanate from IPOB, and we completely dissociate with such falsehood. IPOB did not issue any sit-at-home except on October 21 when our leader is expected to appear in court.

“We, therefore, urge members of the public to ignore the purported statement and utter falsehood being peddled by paid agents of the government to create confusion and demarket IPOB. Their intention is to portray IPOB as a violent and insensitive movement but we know their antics, and shall beat them to it.

“For the sake of clarity, IPOB has not called for any sit-at-home except on Thursday, October 21 when Nnamdi Kanu will appear in court in Abuja. Biafrans will show solidarity with him by staying indoors on that day because we are all in the struggle together. He did nothing to deserve any persecution by the federal government.

“We seriously warn all those behind this rumour to retrace their steps and stop tarnishing the good image of IPOB. As a responsible and responsive movement, we stopped Monday Sit-at-homes in the interest of our people. When we discovered that hooligans and paid agents of death wanted to hijack the opportunity to unleash mayhem on our people are cleverly blame it on IPOB, we stopped it. So, anybody sitting at home on Mondays does so out of their volition and not on the orders of IPOB.

“We also urge the general public to ignore the fake news that our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been taken away by a foreign government."

Nnamdi Kanu who is being charged with terrorism and treason will be tried in a Federal High Court in Abuja on October 21st, 2021 after his absence in court during his initial trial in July.
