Just after ignoring order, IPOB Is Considers Recommencing Every Monday Sit-At-Home

Published

Barely 72 hours after it called off its sit-at-home order, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said it is considering recommencing every Monday order it had earlier made, to push for the release of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, from detention.
The group had last weekend while speaking through its publicity secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, called off the sit-at-home order, saying that the exercise would henceforth hold only on days its leader, Kanu would appear in court.
But despite the suspension of the exercise, Awka, Onitsha, Nnewi and other major towns in Anambra State on Monday observed the sit-at-home order, making the group reconsider its stand.
 
Emma Powerful, who spoke to some journalists, in reaction to the observance of the order, despite the suspension, said that IPOB was no longer forcing anyone to stay at home, but added that people voluntarily decided to observe it to show how they feel about the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.
He said the exercise was not entirely banned but was only suspended, and that since the people were fine with it, the group might reintroduce it.
He, however, said that would be after due consultation.
 
“Yes, we observed that people decided to sit at home today. We did not tell them to do so, and we did not force anybody,” Powerful said.
“They are doing it to show how they feel about the detention of Kanu.
“We suspended the sit-at-home for this Monday, but after consultation, we can decide to order that people should sit at home again by next Monday. As for this Monday, the people are just expressing their feelings. We are still consulting, and we will let people know later,” he noted.

Demand For Nnamdi Kanu’s Immediate Release — Metuh Tells South East Governors

Published

By

Chief Olisa Metuh, former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party has urged Governors of the South East to demand for the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Metuh gave the advice in a statement titled, “Use Enugu Meeting to Demand Nnamdi Kanu’s Release, Metuh Urges S/E Governors,” which he signed and made available via email, on Monday.

He enjoined the governors to use their proposed Enugu meeting to make the demand.

Metuh said, “As governors and leaders of the southeast zone converge in Enugu to find solutions to the security challenges in the zone, one sure step towards achieving answers is for our leaders to use the opportunity to demand for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention.

“It is a considered submission that the release of Nnamdi Kanu will not only douse tension in the region but also put an end to allegations and counter-allegations regarding those behind the escalated insecurity in the zone and give our security agencies a clearer cue to track down the perpetrators.”

His appeal is coming against the backdrop of denials by IPOB that it was not involved in the series of senseless killings and arson in the zone.

The former PDP spokesperson further said, “authorities should therefore use the release of Nnamdi Kanu to eliminate the current puzzlement and complications as well as a political solution for situations that constitute unrest in the South East.

“It is therefore imperative for our governors and leaders to use this meeting to impress upon the Federal Government to adopt a political approach by releasing Nnamdi Kanu.”
