The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have reportedly stated that the group is not responsible for the violence and criminal activities in the South-East.
This was reportedly made known by the spokesman of the group, Emmanuel Powerful, adding that IPOB’s Monday sit-at-home order doesn’t exist anymore.
According to him, “We, the Indigenous People of Biafra under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to tell Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State that IPOB is not responsible for the criminality in the South-East, including Anambra State. The governor should know that our enemies are committing atrocities using our name in their desperation to blackmail IPOB.”
He disclosed, “It is a certain criminal gang called Autopilots that are carrying out threats against people’s lives because of the non-existent Monday sit-at-home. These people disturbing the peace of our people are not IPOB members. They should be treated as criminals. IPOB doesn’t shed blood. We are a peaceful movement.”
He noted, “We, therefore, warn these agents of darkness using the name of IPOB to enforce a non-existent sit-at-home to desist.”
He emphasized, “The only day sit-at-home will be observed in Biafraland is when our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is appearing in court, and we shall, as usual, make it public for all to know.”
