Anambra Guber In Jeopardy As IPOB Declares Sit-At-Home On Election Day
  • PublishedOctober 24, 2021

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has declared total lockdown in all states in south East from 5th to 10th of November to compel the federal government to release their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

This is seen as a move targeted at truncating the Anambra state governorship election as the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) had fixed the state election for Saturday 6th November 2021.

IPOB in a statement issued by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Power said “following the adjournment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case to 10th of November 2021, by the Federal High Court Abuja, it demanded all lovers of Biafra and Biafrans to sit at home from 5 to 10 November to ensure that their leader is released.

“We the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from 5th of November to 10th of November except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama, if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 2021” he stated.

IPOB said its leader Nnamdi Kanu must be released unconditionally on or before November 4, 2021 “because he has not committed any offense known to any law.

IPOB said, “failure to release Nnamdi KANU on or before November 4, 2021, there will be one-week Sit-At-Home beginning on November 5, 2021, till November 10.”

It will be recalled that Kanu was arraigned at the Federal High Court, Abuja during the week on charges of treasonable felony and terrorism. He however pleaded not guilty to the allegations.

The presiding Judge, Justice Binta Nyako, however, refused an application by Kanu’s lawyers to transfer him to the Nigerian Correctional Service and instead remanded him in the DSS custody, citing security reasons.
