Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has claimed that Monday’s sit-at-home in the South East region is “dead and buried.”
Kanu stated this while urging Igbos to welcome the canceling of the sit-at-home order.
Speaking through his lead Counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, he charged residents of the Southeast to reject those using his name to dupe people.
IPOB had initiated the sit-at-home order to push for Kanu’s release.
But the initiative was hijacked by criminal elements using the measure to cause havoc.
In a bid to find a lasting solution to the sit-at-home havoc, Kanu had cancelled the initiative and replaced it with Economic Empowerment Day, EED.
A statement by Ejiofor reads: “The Oracle #MNK himself has spoken. Even if it’s hitherto voluntarily observed, our people are advised to critically assess the unquantifiable damages arising therefrom, and wisely welcome this unequivocal pronouncement by #MNK totally canceling any form of sit-at-home, and reject the dangerous tendencies of criminal elements using the revered name of #MNK to dupe the gullible and vulnerable.
“Before it was warships parked at the banks of river Benue and river Niger; then, it was Biafra coming in 150 days; now it is donors for a phantom two weeks sit-at-home palliative.
“Before you donate, ask yourself, where and places any imaginary sit-at-home was observed.
“Let our people put on their thinking caps, and resist these serial fraudsters whose sole aim is to exploit their undying love for Biafra and #MNK.
“Biafrans are gifted with wisdom and can no longer be subjects of violent manipulation.”
