IPOB To Return Sit-at-home Order To South-East


Indigenous People of Biafra (POB), says it is considering returning the sit-at-home order it earlier declared to push for the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, from DSS custody.

Last week, IPOB, through its spokesman, Emma Powerful, called off the sit-at-home order, saying that the exercise would henceforth take place on days Kanu would appear in court.

However, checks by Leakblast.com reveals that people in major towns in the South-East like Aba, Onitsha, Nsukka, Nnewi, Akwa partially observed the sit-at-home order despite the suspension of the order.

Speaking with newsmen on Monday, Powerful appreciated the people of the region for observing the sit-at-home order despite its suspension.

He said that IPOB was no longer forcing anyone to stay at home, but added that people voluntarily decided to observe it to show how they feel about the continued detention of the IPOB leader.

Powerful said the exercise was not entirely banned but was only suspended, and that since the people were fine with it, the group might reintroduce it after due consultation.

“Yes, we observed that people decided to sit at home today. We did not tell them to do so, and we did not force anybody.

“They are doing it to show how they feel about the detention of Kanu.

“We suspended the sit-at-home for this Monday, but after consultation, we can decide to order that people should sit at home again by next Monday.

“As for this Monday, the people are just expressing their feelings. We are still consulting, and we will let people know later,” he said.
