IPOB bullshits Igbo presidency, insists on Oct 1st sit-at-home
The Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), has said that the October 1st proclaimed sit-at-home must take place despite the techniques of the Federal government to frustrate its plans.
In a press statement, the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, maintained the stand on restoring Biafra and expressed its refusal for Igbo presidency, adding that Biafrans home and abroad are united in their resolve to lock Biafraland down on October 1 and no traitor can break its ranks or dent its resolve.
Powerful in the statement, added that the sit-at-home is also a peaceful protest designed to express discontent with the injustices, misrule, oppression, genocidal killings and other atrocities perpetrated against Biafrans and other indigenous peoples by the government of Nigeria.
In response to the sabotage and Fulani activities in Ebonyi State, Powerful Said, “Those using the cover of political office to surrender Ebonyi State to the murderous Miyetti Allah terrorists and their counterparts using the name of inconsequential and roundly compromised socio-cultural groups to issue statements designed to attract Fulani patronage must be made to understand that treachery never pays.”
Recall that the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, had earlier on ordered a total shutdown of the Eastern region on October 1st, an exercise it termed mini referendum.
The statement reads thus further, “We the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, wish to restate our irrevocable resolve to observe the sit-at-home order earlier issued by our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu against October 1st, 2020 independence anniversary of the crumbling contraption, the failed state of Nigeria.
“This order which is a peaceful protest of our discontent with the injustices, misrule, oppression, genocidal killings and other atrocities perpetrated by the government of Nigeria against Biafrans and other indigenous peoples in this British-created contraption must be observed throughout Biafraland.
“Any governor, political office holder, shameless poverty-stricken Caliphate slave or Efulefu in Biafraland or anywhere in Nigeria who thinks he can endear himself to their Caliphate masters by issuing any counter directive must understand that what awaits every traitor in the history of the liberation struggle is inevitably waiting for them.
“All markets and business premises in Biafraland must remain closed from 6 am to 6 pm on October 1st. The same way, Biafran traders outside Biafraland should stay away from their shops and business environment on that day.
“All roads in Biafraland MUST be deserted. Every motor-park should be under lock and key, it must remain closed. Motorists, tricycles and motorcycle operators should keep off all roads in Biafraland. More importantly, parents and guardians should not make the mistake of allowing their children to step outside or gather in large numbers as terrorists are planning a deadly attack on that very day.
“There should be no public event, processions, or protests. Everybody in Biafran territory must remain indoors from dawn to dusk. All Biafrans must remain indoors to avoid becoming victims of stray bullets because Nigerian Army and Police will as usual be out in force looking for who to kill.
“People should boycott every activity in connection with the Nigerian independence anniversary because Nigeria has nothing to celebrate after 60 years of misery, poverty, state-organized terrorism and death. Nigeria is held hostage by those who have more regard for their cows than human beings. So, there is nothing to celebrate. We must remember all victims of Fulani terrorism in our land and beyond.
“We advise all Biafrans and our sympathizers all over the world including our Oduduwa brothers and sisters to join us in observing this order. If you were indoors during Covid-19 lockdown for months and never died of hunger, staying at home for 12 hours on October 1st won’t in any way hurt you but rather it will send a message to the whole world that we are tired of the pain, suffering and terrorism in Nigeria.
Speaking on Igbo presidency, Powerful maintained that it’s just a mere hallucination and a smoking mind-bending drugs.
“To those who think we can drop our agitation for Biafra because of their useless promise of Nigeria President of Igbo extraction in 2023 must be smoking mind-bending drugs because their hallucinations will not get them anywhere. Take your useless ‘Igbo Presidency’ and give us Biafra. Biafra is non-negotiable and very soon we shall restore our dream republic.”
