Arrest anyone enforcing Monday sit-at-home in any part of South-East – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has ordered the arrest of anyone enforcing the Monday sit-at-home in any part of the South-East.


The Media and Publicity Secretary of secessionist group, Emma Powerful, gave the directive on Thursday in a statement made available to newsmen. He wondered why some people would continue to enforce an order that was long cancelled by the secessionist group.


He called on community and religious leaders in the area to devise ways to arrest such hoodlums and hand them over to IPOB authorities in the localities.

The group’s statement reads in part;

”We wish to reiterate once again that IPOB has cancelled Monday sit- at-home order and anybody or group enforcing the relaxed order is neither from IPOB nor from IPOB volunteer group.

“We are advising our people to ignore anybody enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at- home order and go about their normal business because such person(s) are working for our enemies and their intension is to blackmail IPOB and set the movement against the people but they won’t succeed.

“Anyone caught adding to the pain of our people in the name of enforcing Monday sit-at-home order will be treated like the enemy that he or she is.


“We therefore, warn these agents of darkness using the name of IPOB to enforce a non-existent sit-at-home to desist because if we lay hold on them they will eternally regret their evil actions.


“Why should such unpatriotic elements be inflicting pain on our people and dragging our image to the mud? IPOB remains a non-violent movement and our peaceful approach for Biafra restoration has not changed.
