No Sit-At-Home In South East As Nnamdi Kanu Appears In Court Thursday—IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, Wednesday, said its usual sit-at-home order on days Mazi Nnamdi Kanu appears in court would not be observed Thursday despite the emergency arraignment of its leader, Mazi Kanu.

IPOB’s director of communication, Emma Powerful, stated this in a release made available to THE WHISTLER in Umuahia.

The statement read, “Our leader will be in court tomorrow but there will be no lockdown in Biafra land.

“We wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will be in court tomorrow, December 2, 2021 in Abuja.

“We, therefore, urge Biafrans living in Abuja and its environs to come out en masse to solidarise with our leader.

“Meanwhile, there will be no lockdown tomorrow in any part of Biafra land as a result of the court appearance.”

Mr Powerful urged people of the southeast to go about their normal businesses.

According to him, “Biafrans resident in Biafra land as well as visitors to Biafra land are free to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations or intimidation.

“We have not asked or authorised anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for tomorrow’s court appearance of our Leader.

“Only Biafrans and friends of Biafra in Abuja and its environs are encouraged to be at the court premises.

“As a non-violent movement, we urge everyone to remain peaceful and law abiding in all their conducts.

“Security operatives should also refrain from infringing on the fundamental rights of people who come to cheer our leader.

“We all know that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi, is not being persecuted because of any crime other than his fight for our collective freedom.

“Therefore, we owe him a duty to stand by him until this darkness is over. We are all together in it.

“We commend the legal team of our leader for their untiring efforts to defend our leader who is innocent of the charges proferred against him.

“We urge all Biafrans to keep praying for our leader, and the full restoration of Biafra Republic.”

Mazi Kanu is facing trial on treason and running a proscribed organisation.
