…”Obey and lose your August salary’, Anambra govt. warns civil servants
The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), has insisted that its Monday sit-at-home order is sacrosanct.
The group disclosed this in an issued statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, and made available to newsmen in Abakaliki yesterday.
According to Emma, the protest, which will commence from 6:00 a.m and ends at 6:00 p.m, will be peaceful but firm. He then advised Biafrans to stay indoors in total compliance.
The statement further read: “The entire Biafra land will be locked down every Monday, beginning from tomorrow, August 9, until our leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who was abducted in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria and locked up in DSS dungeon in clear violation of international laws is freed.
“Consequently, there will be no movement throughout Biafra land on Mondays until our leader, who is suffering for our freedom, is released. This protest is peaceful but firm. Everybody is advised to stay indoors in total compliance.
“We understand the economic implications of this measure but we are constrained to take it so that the world will know that our leader, Nnamdi Kanu is not alone in the struggle for Biafra autonomy”.
Powerful further said, “We want his immediate release and our total freedom, and cannot hesitate to pay any sacrifice needed to achieve this including locking down the entire Biafra land on Mondays”.
