KanyiDaily had reported how the whole of South-East recorded total compliance with the sit-at-home order on Monday to honour Biafran heroes killed during the 1966 civil war.
In a statement issued by IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful on Monday, Nnamdi Kanu commended the Southeast governors for the compliance of the sit-at-home order which he claimed “frightened their oppressors.”
The IPOB leader urged southeasterners to be resolute in the agitation, assuring them that a referendum that will lead them to a sovereign nation of Biafra is around the corner.
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our prophet and liberator, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, are delighted to note that this year’s sit-at-home order in honour of our fallen heroes recorded 100% success throughout Biafra land.
“We, therefore, wish to warmly commend Biafrans, South-East Governors, Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa, friends and lovers of Biafra freedom who made the exercise a huge success. The unprecedented success and total compliance that greeted the exercise have sent panic waves down the spine of our oppressors. Now they understand how prepared we are in our irrevocable resolve to restore the Biafra republic.
“We immensely thank the people of Akwa Ibom, Cross Rivers, Anambra, Abia, Delta, Imo, Edo, Rivers, Bayelsa, and Kogi States as well as Igbanke, Idoma and Igede people for being part of the success story. We equally extend our appreciation to our brothers and sisters in Ambazonia for their wonderful support.
“We cannot thank the Biafran Diaspora community for their inestimable contributions in our struggle for independence. Biafrans in the Diaspora did us proud on Sunday, May 30 when they trooped out in their thousands to celebrate the Biafra Day in their respective host countries. We are very proud of you all.
“Above all, we are grateful to the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama for making the exercise peaceful and hitch-free. We are peace lovers and will continue to push for our freedom peacefully.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi had earlier reversed his statement that traders who comply with the Monday’s sit-at-home order, would forfeit their shops.
