IPOB has declared sit-at-home on October 1, orders the removal of Nigerian flags in the entire South-East region.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has issued a sit-at-home order on 1st October, the day of Nigeria’s independence celebration.
IPOB executive, Chika Edoziem, who disclosed this during a radio broadcast on Friday, said there would be total lockdown in the entire South-East region on October 1, 2021.
Edoziem also ordered that all Nigerian flags mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down, threatening to enforce the order if anyone refuses to peacefully bring down the flag.
“The 1st of October declared total shutdown in Biafra land. There shall be no movement in Biafra land on 1st of October being Nigerian Independence day. Again from tonight, all Nigerian flags mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down; banks exempted.
“IPOB leadership will communicate to banks directly and give them reason why they must peaceful bring down the flag. Otherwise, we do it ourselves in our own way,” Edoziem said.
KanyiDaily recalls that IPOB had also threatened to impose a one-month sit-at-home protest in the South-East if the Federal Government fails to produce its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to court for his next court hearing on October 21.
