Igbo separatist organization, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared October 1st, 2021 a sit-at-home day across the Southeast.
According to the group, the October 1 sit-at-home is to show its rejection of Nigeria and all the country stands for.
This was revealed in a statement by its spokesman on Saturday, Emma Powerful, stating that the sit-at-home order was declared to celebrate Ambazonia Independence Anniversary.
The statement reads partly: “IPOB has declared 1st of October 2021 total shutdown in Biafra land as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day.
“Every body must strictly adhere to this directives from IPOB leadership, we want to let the world know you that Biafraland is not Nigeria and shall not be. Don’t say I don’t know, a word is enough for the wise.”
