The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said that they would treat anyone caught using its name to enforce what it described as “none-existent” sit-at-home order.
The Publicity Secretary of the pro-Biafra group, Comrade Emma Powerful in a statement on Tuesday stated that IPOB doesn’t have any other sit-at-home after Tuesday, September 14 sit-at-home.
According to Powerful, any other sit-at-home, including the weekly sit-at-home call by a faction of IPOB should be ignored as such runs contrary to IPOB directive.
He went further to state that anyone using the name of IPOB to enforce any weekly sit-at-home that is not coming from IPOB leadership under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not only a saboteur, but does so at his or her peril.
Powerful while promising that IPOB will be replacing the motorbikes burnt at Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume Njaba in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State for their owners. This is as Powerful also promised that the group will rebuild school blocks burnt by hoodlums in the name of ESN and IPOB volunteers.
The IPOB spokesman said that the action of the said ESN/IPOB volunteers do not portray or indicate that IPOB committed the heinous crime.
He went ahead to promise that IPOB would be setting up tax force to checkmate those parading themselves as IPOB volunteers and those committing this crime against humanity and the people of Southeast and Biafra Land.
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to reiterate once again, that we have no other sit-at-home order after 14th September.
“Any other purported sit-at-home including the suspended weekly sit-at-home on Mondays does not exist in the dairy of IPOB. In fact, after September 14, there is no other sit-at-home this week. Any contrary news or speculations to this effect should be ignored.
“Anybody trying to enforce any sit-at-home order using the name of IPOB is a saboteur, and does so at his peril.
“If we catch anybody disturbing the peace of Biafrans or residents in Biafra land under the guise of enforcing non-existent sit-at-home order, such a person regret his actions because he will receive the reward of traitors.
“IPOB is a responsible organization with reasoning and empathy. We cannot be part of the problem we are trying to solve. We cannot join the enemies to compound the woes of our people we are fighting to liberate.
“That was why we suspended the ghost Mondays that we earlier declared because of the economic implications to our people.
“We listened to appeals by the people and reviewed our stance on the matter then. That was why we reduced the sit-at-home protests to the days our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be making appearances in court. That is enough for now and we stand by it.
“Anybody trying to impose another sit-at-home order on our people or enforce illegal or imaginary sit-at-home is not IPOB, and must be dealt with. Such a person(s) are working with the enemies to disrepute IPOB, and we won’t tolerate such stupidity.
“On this note, IPOB strongly condemn the barbaric act by hoodlums and mentally deranged fellows who disrupted a WAEC exam in a school in Imo State on Monday. What a stupid madness! Whoever was behind such barbarity must be made to pay for their actions.
“IPOB leadership is hereby promising to replace those motorbikes burnt in the school to their owners and rebuild school blocks burnt by hoodlums in the name of ESN and IPOB volunteers, this is not to portray or indicate that IPOB committed the heinous crimes against our people and promise to set up tax force to checkmate those parading themselves as IPOB volunteers and those committing this crime against humanity and our people, we plead to Biafrans to bear with us for this dastardly act against humanity they are using to disrepute and demormize IPOB in the world.
