The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced a new date for the sit-at-home protest as the Federal High Court postpones Nnamdi Kanu’s trial.
Kanu trial which was initially scheduled to take place on 26th May, Thursday was postponed to 28th June because Justice Binta Nyako is indisposed.
A statement issued by the spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful urged its members not to relent in their prayers.
Powerful disclosed that the IPOB Legal Counsel headed by Ifeanyi Ejiofor shared the information about the postponement with him.
To this effect, tomorrow’s (26th May) sit-at-home has been canceled.
The statement reads:
”Sit-at-home will hold on 28th June 2022. According to the Registrar, this is because Justice Binta Nyako is indisposed, and as such, the matter is now adjourned to the 28th day of June 2022 for Ruling/Hearing. We most respectfully, urge you all to maintain restraint, as you have always done. Keep your eyes on the ball, which is the freedom of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
”Also, please note that Justice delayed is not justice denied. We are aggressively cruising to the victory of our Leader, it is only a matter of time.
”There is no sit-at-home again tomorrow Biafrans should bear with us. We profoundly appreciate your solidarity, unflinching support and prayers, which have been sustaining us thus far. Please do not relent in your prayers, we do not take them for granted. We shall continue to keep you all informed as events unfold.”
