Biafran Group Insists On One Week Sit-At-Home

Biafran Group Insists On One Week Sit-At-Home

IPOB members attack Imo Police Station

The leader of the Indigenous Biafra Warriors (IBW), Ndubuisi Igwekala has said that there is no going back on the one week warning sit-at-home declared by the Indegenuos People of Biafra (IPOB)  from November 5.

In a statement made available to journalists in Enugu, Igwekala said the sit-at-home will continue until the federal government releases IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Our position is that there will be one week sit-at-home starting from the 5th of November.

“We are asking the federal government to release Nnamdi Kanu, failure to do that there will be total lockdown of the South East. And this is a warning sit-at-home.

“We expect the entire Igbo land to rise and demand the release of Kanu. And that is the essence of the sit-at-home as agreed by all pro Biafra groups.

“We are not saying there should be no electiion, what we are saying is that we are not coming out to vote while Nnamdi Kanu is in detention.

“We are not stopping any election, we are not harassing anybody what we are saying is a total lockdown in the South East.

“That our son who has brought himself out to fight for all of us is in detention, the economic effect is not the issue. Personally, I am also losing out in my own business but it’s part of the sacrifice.

“All we are doing is to prove to the world that Nnamdi did not do anything and should be released.

“And when you talk about economic effect, Nigeria is not favourable to Igbo people. If you go to Apapa today you see our people suffering day and night struggling for the release of their goods while our slave masters sit on the goods demanding billions of naira for the goods to be cleared.

“In the end, customs will still wait for them on the highway to seize the same goods cleared in Apapa. Is it not economic sabotage? Let me tell you, Nigeria is not good for Igbo people.

“And it is time for us to rise up and demand for what belongs to us. If we don’t do what we are doing today it will be too late for us. We must stand and demand for our rights; it’s not a crime, it’s not a sin.

“Even if we lockdown the South East for one year and get what we want it’s better than our current situation which is suffering and smiling. Nnamdi did not commit any crime they should release him."
