… Wants Removal Of All Nigerian Flags From Southeast
To mark Nigeria’s independence anniversary on Friday October 1, 2021, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has again called for a sit-at-home across the Southeastern states of Nigeria. IPOB announced this in a statement on Saturday September 25, 2021, by its spokesman, Emma Powerful. The body said that the act represents the rejection of Nigeria, and all the country stands for.
IPOB also declared the commencement of “operation no Nigerian flag begins in Biafra land from October 1st.” According to Powerful, the sit-at-home order was issued to celebrate Ambazonia Independence Anniversary.
The statement reads in parts, “IPOB has declared 1st of October 2021 total shutdown in Biafra land as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day.
“Also, IPOB has declared from today 25th September 2021 that all Nigerian flags mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down, banks exceptional, IPOB leadership will communicate to banks directly and give them reason they must peacefully bring down Nigeria flag in their banking premises before we do it ourselves in our own way.
“Everybody must strictly adhere to these directives from IPOB leadership, we want to let the world know that Biafra land is not Nigeria and shall not be. Don’t say I don’t know; a word is enough for the wise.”
