The Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has announced May 18 and 26 as sit-at-home in solidarity with its leader – Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whose cases were coming up in court on the two days respectively.
This was disclosed in a press statement issued on Saturday and circulated to journalists, the spokesman for the group, Comrade Emma Powerful noted that, “the attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been drawn to a purported voice note ordering Biafrans and residents of Biafraland to sit at home on a date other than May 18th.
This is the hand work of Nigerian paid agents and should be totally ignored”.
According to Powerful, IPOB is not a faceless movement and does not announce its activities through voice messages. Biafrans must be very much at alert because the Nigerian government is working through its security agencies the DSS and the BBC are trying so hard to create confusion in our land in attempt to set Biafrans against themselves and scuttle our struggle for liberation.
” But we assure them that Biafrans know their plans and will not fall for their evil agenda.
“Like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said, if you did not hear it on radio Biafra then it is not from IPOB. IPOB announce its activities and events only through official channels which are (i)Radio Biafra (ii) Press Statement from Emma Powerful (office of IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary) and (iii) Memo from the Office of IPOB Head of Directorate. To this end therefore the only Sit-At- Home order emenating and announced by IPOB leadership are the 18th and 26th of May, 2022 being the dates our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU will appear in court. The IPOB leadership is very strategic in its actions and directives to the Biafran people knowing fully well that our enemies are desperate to scuttle this heaven ordained freedom movement.”
The spokesman noted that “those behind the purported voice note should go inform their pay masters to stop dissipating their energy and resources on a hopeless attempt to stop the collective will and decision of the Indigenous people of Biafra IPOB worldwide to pursue our Self Determination Right.
“Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom across the world and especially in Biarraland should therefore pay no heed to faceless DSS agents and impostors recruited to serve the interest of Fulani Caliphate.”
