The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said the call for the lockdown of the entire Southeast region tagged ‘a ghost Monday’, starting from Monday August 9th between the hours of 6am to 6pm is a fight for the emancipation of the Southeast and restoration of a Sovereign State of Biafra.
The Publicity Secretary of the Pro-Biafra group, Comrade Emma Powerful in a statement issued on Friday said that the planned lock down of the Southeast which was in solidarity would continue until its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is currently being detained in the Department of State Security Facility (DSS) in Abuja was freed from detention.
Powerful who in the statement warned that anyone that disobeyed the order will face the consequences of his or her actions, stated that markets, schools, Seaports, Airports and transport companies, government institutions and public and private establishments including banks in the Southeast region were expected to also comply with the order.
The group also warned that they were going to unleash terror and vengeance on DSS should anything happened to their leader in their custody, urging Biafrans to be prepared “because we will no longer fold our arms while our leader who is fighting for the liberation of the oppressed indigenous nationalities in Nigeria is languishing in detention. We are going to cripple Nigerian economy until they free him.
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to all Biafra citizens, friends of Biafra and lovers of Biafra freedom and independence that IPOB leadership has declared every Monday ‘a ghost Monday’.
“This declaration takes effect from Monday, August 9, 2021. From that day Biafra land will be on lock down every Monday from 6:00am to 6:00pm until our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was unlawfully abducted in Kenya and illegally detained by the federal government of Nigeria is released.
“We wish to state full details of this coming ghost Mondays every week, our people must understand that it was designed to show the world how serious we are towards this fight for Biafra freedom and independence everybody must adhere to this clarion call put in place by the leadership of IPOB and it would be good for everyone to know that that IPOB will not relent until Biafra is fully achieved.
“The DSS can go ahead and keep our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu incommunicado without access to him and we observed that DSS operatives are torturing our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the point of death that was why they don’t anybody to see his state of health in the DSS facility.
“DSS should know that if anything untoward happen to him we are going to confirm what IPOB is made and they will understand that we are prepared for this freedom. Our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not a criminal and has the rights to be visited in their custody.
“This is a call for Biafran leaders, politicians especially those mentioned their names as those behind his abduction and rendition to Nigeria, if anything happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu all of them should prepare never come back to Biafraland because it will not accommodate us together.
“Nobody should take our quietness as cowardice. Our intelligence reveals that Nnamdi Kanu is under serious torture and humiliation because he refused all offer given to him.
“We declare every Monday sit- at- home throughout Biafra land until our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, regains his freedom. The federal government must allow him access to his personal physicians, and allow him to sign documents given to him by the British Government to provide him consular assistance. This peaceful protest will continue ones every week until our demands are met.
“Consequently, all institutions public and private, transport companies, schools, banks, markets, airports and sea ports in Biafra land must shut down every Monday beginning from August 9.
“People are to remain indoors to register their concern over the fate of our Leader and the rest of all agitators languishing in various security detentions.
“Nobody should attempt to flout this directive as doing so may come with huge consequences. Anybody flouting this order is taking a grave risk.
“Nnamdi Kanu has sacrificed so much for Biafra, so sacrificing Mondays of every week is not too much for us. Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill our people yet the federal government failed to protect our people.”
