The arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has maintained he has no hand in the continuos Monday sit-at-home order in the Southeast.
Kanu is quoted to have said this while conversing with former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and two bishops at the Department of State Services, DSS, headquarters in Abuja earlier, Leakblast.com understands.
There has been outrage over the continuous observance of Monday sit-at-home in the Southeast, most especially whenever Kanu is to appear before the court for his trial.
The IPOB leader and his group have, however, distanced themselves from the reoccurring sit-at-home, threatening that those behind its enforcement would be dealt with.
Former Deputy Governor of Abia State, Enyinnaya Abaribe had earlier disclosed that Kanu denied issuing the order during a meeting.
Buttressing on the claims, IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Thursday maintained that Kanu has no hand in the recurring order.
“It is a true statement from Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe because we stated it before now that our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU through his lawyers asked IPOB members and leadership precisely the DOS to stop Monday sit-at-home order, those enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at-home order killing and burning down properties belonging to Biafrans will incur the wrath of IPOB in due cause,” Powerful noted.
He warned that “Those enforcing this non-existent Monday sit-at-home order will soon regret their actions because they are not IPOB members and don’t know or understand what IPOB is capable of doing. They must regret what they are doing in our land. Their actions are detestable both to God and man. Such people have nothing in common with IPOB.”
According to Powerful, the recent information and statement from Senator Abaribe have vindicated IPOB’s legal team and DOS who obliged the information from their lawyers who indicated how Kanu instructed the group to stop Monday sit-at-home.
