Biafra: IPOB vows to punish people enforcing Monday sit-at-home in South East
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has promised to fish out and punish those who are enforcing the Monday sit-at-home order in the South East.
The development has seen banks, shops and other economic outlets in the states shut down, over fear of attack.
IPOB had ordered that a sit-at-home be observed across the region every Monday pending the freedom of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
But following pressure from stakeholders, the group rescinded its decision, stating that the order would now be observed only when Kanu is appearing in the court to continue his trial.
However, despite the suspension, some hoodlums disguised as IPOB members in the region have continued to enforce the sit-at-home order by attacking and killing violators.
Reacting, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful on Tuesday, said anyone caught enforcing the order henceforth, would be dealt with.
According to him, anyone moving contrary to the cancellation of the sit-at-home would face their wrath, saying that IPOB is not clan meeting
He said, “I am happy you said it yourself that we cancelled the Monday sit-at-home.
“We said it in the beginning, but we stopped it, we have told people to stop sitting at home on Mondays.
“Anyone doing anything to the contrary, forcing people to sit-at-home on Mondays, or doing anything to them because they are not sitting at home on Mondays, if IPOB get such people, no matter who the person is, we will cut off his ears, IPOB is not clan meeting, it is a revolutionary movement fighting for the Republic of Biafra”.
