The Mazi Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has distanced itself from the proposed five days sit-at-home order announced on the social media by a self-acclaimed second-in-command to Kanu, the Finland-based Mr. Simon Ekpa.

IPOB in a statement issued by the Spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful on Tuesday entitled, “Biafrans Ignore Any Five-Day Wicked And Stupid Sit-at-home Order From The Agendist – IPOB“, stated categorically that at no time did it order it order a five days stay-in-door within the Southeast Zone, advising people in the area to go about their business activities.

NewsBits reports that the statement issued by Mr. Powerful might not be unconnected to the announcement on the social media by Simon Ekpa, ordering a five days sit-at-home in the entire Igboland as a way of “claiming Biafraland.”

Also, NewsBits recalls that the highest Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigb through its national publicity secretary, Dr. Alex Ogbonnia, had earlier issued a statement in which, based on the Simon Ekpa’s broadcast on social media, he (Ogbonnia) had asked whether Ekpa is a hero or villain?

The statement from Mr. Powerful reads: ” The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great prophet and indefatigable liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu wishes to state unequivocally to the people of Biafra, friends of Biafra, and lovers of Biafra freedom that IPOB leadership did not issue any sit-at-home order on 9th,10th, 11th, 12th, 13th or 14th of December 2022.

“IPOB never issued any sit-at-home order on these days mentioned above because we are not miscreants, senseless, or jobless people. Every Biafran and residents in Biafra Land should ignore such order from untrained and brainless individuals whose agenda is to make Biafra agitation unattractive to our people. Every Biafran must go to their normal business on those days.

“IPOB who is concerned about our people cannot issue such brainless uncaring five-day consecutive sit at home order to suffer our people during this critical time of the year when people are trying to makeup in their businesses for the year.

“The conception of consecutive five-day sit at home by a Nigeria agent and his sponsors is to show the level of wickedness and hatred they have against our people. Their agenda is to create insecurity and unnecessary hardships to make our people jettison Biafra freedom. How wicked!

“Again, everyone has his or her rights to go and collect his or her PVC from their pooling and registration centre without molestations. IPOB never boycott election and has nothing to do with Nigeria shambolic elections. Our people should be prepared and ready to confront any fool who dares to enforce such wicked sit-at-home. Moreso, ESN operatives and IPOB volunteers will be out on these dates to protect our people and the markets.

“Biafran youths should also be ready to confront anybody who comes to force them to close their businesses on these days. The idiots who are issuing this brazen sit at home order should know that IPOB leadership has never authorized anyone to issue order of such magnitude in Biafraland, therefore, it will not work out for them.

“Our people should go to their businesses without fear. IPOB has put the Agendists and their foot soldiers in Biafra land on check. Biafra restoration is moving well and we must exit this cage called Nigeria by the grace of Elohim.”
