IPOB vows to fish out, punish those enforcing Monday sit-at-home in Southeast

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has vowed to clamp down on some elements in the Southeast enforcing the Monday sit-at-home.

 

The development has crippled economy in the region as banks, shops and other organizations remain shut on Mondays over fear of attack.

 

You will recall that the secessionist group, sequel to the detention of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Department of State Services, DSS, had ordered that a sit-at-home be observed across the region every Monday pending the freedom of Kanu.

 

But following pressure from stakeholders, the group rescinded its decision, stating that the order would now be observed only when Kanu is appearing in the court to continue his trial.

 

However, despite the suspension, some hoodlums disguised as IPOB members in the region have continued to enforce the sit-at-home order by attacking and killing violators.

 

DAILY POST had reported that some students participating in the ongoing 2021 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, were attacked in Imo State on Monday for violating the sit-at-home order to sit for their English Language examination.

Reacting, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful on Tuesday, said anyone caught enforcing the order henceforth, would be dealt with.

 

According to him, anyone moving contrary to the cancellation of the sit-at-home would face their wrath, saying that IPOB is not clan meeting
