Sit-at-home: Amechi Threatens To Quit Agitations For Kanu’s Release


Following the continual enforcement of the Monday sit-at-home order by some IPOB members despite the suspension, Mbazulike Amechi, a First Republic Minister of Aviation, has reportedly lamented that the actions of some leaders of the Indigenous People of Biafra are endangering the ongoing discussion and negotiation for the release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

 According to him, “I discussed with the Presidency and Mr President himself on two subjects – the Igbo situation in Nigeria and Nnamdi Kanu. And our discussion was very good and friendly but the sit-at-home order IPOB is dishing out in the South-East is embarrassing the whole thing. I don’t know the leaders of IPOB and who they are.”

He noted that, “Kanu is in detention although the Presidency arranged for me to go and see him and I went and saw him and we discussed.”

He added that, “So, I just told their lawyer, he is in a better position to contact them, to stop the Monday to Thursday sit-at-home. I told him that it is too much and is ruining the economy of the South-East but he told me that they had already issued a statement that IPOB had never said that.”

He maintained that, “They must stop their actions which make the release of their leader more difficult. If they don’t, I will withdraw my own efforts.”

This is coming after reports that some masked men suspected to be members of IPOB allegedly attacked traders at Obollo-Afor town in Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State for disobeying the order on Monday.
