The people of the Southeast and South-South were on Sunday thrown into confusion as the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and younger brother to its leader, Prince Kanu issue different conflicting press statements on the planned Monday August 9, sit-at-home across the country especially southeast and South-South.
While Nnamdi Kanu’s younger stated that his decision to suspend the planned Monday sit-at-home in the state was to give candidates sitting for the National Examination Council of Nigeria (NECO) the chance to sit for their examination, IPOB through its Publicity Secretary; Emma Powerful said that younger Kanu was acting on his own.
But Prince Kanu said “IPOB has listened to pleas from well-meaning individuals and groups within and outside Biafra land that we consider the fate of our children who will be involved in the NECO Exam and based on that, we decided to shift grounds over the sit-at-home order.”
“As a group fighting for the liberation of her people from oppression from her enemies, we realized that it would amount to assisting the said enemies to inflict more harm on our children if we do not suspend the sit-at-home order to allow Biafra students take their exams”.
While making it clear the sit-at-home order has not been cancelled, but only suspended for the sake of Biafra students taking this year’s NECO Exam, the statement called on all IPOB global family members and Biafrans at large to await further directives in this regard.
In a counter-statement, Emma Powerful said “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the purported suspension of Monday sit at home order issued by leadership of IPOB has been suspended by some section of media. We wish to remind every Biafran that the sit at home order remain sacrosanct on Monday tomorrow.
“Anybody issuing press statement concerning IPOB sit-at-home order is fake and any statement without sit-at-home order or any activity of IPOB remain comrade Emma Powerful the media and publicity secretary for IPOB. Therefore, every Biafran should disregard regard every statement that is not from Emma Powerful or DOS and radio Biafra.
“We know the situation of those going exam tomorrow but our demand is for them to release our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and our people must understand that Fulani terrorists and co stopped our people school for three years during the genocidal war in 1967 to 1970 and it did not kill our people and this one day sacrifice for the release of somebody who has sacrificed a lot for our land.
“Anybody who venture to come out tomorrow Will regret his or her life. We warn you tomorrow is total lockdown in every part of Biafra tomorrow..”
