The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced the suspension of the weekly sit-at-home exercise.
The group had earlier announced a weekly Monday lockdown in the entire South-East as a measure to force the Federal Government to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently in the custody of the Directorate of State Security, (DSS).
Announcing the suspension on Radio Biafra, on Friday night, IPOB’s Head of the Directorate of State, Chika Edoziem, said they will henceforth declare sit-at-home whenever their leader would be making an appearance in court and not every Monday anymore.
Edoziem urged IPOB members to continue praying for their leader “that his health may not fail him and grant him victory for Biafrans”.
The first Monday, August 9 sit-at-home had attracted widespread condemnation in some quarters following its effect on students writing National Examination Council, (NECO) Mathematics examination.
