IPOB: Sit at home wasn’t given by Nnamdi Kanu.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the legal representative of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), stated in a statement released yesterday that the group’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, did not order Southeasterners to remain at home on October 4, 2022.
Ejiofor urged the general public to carry on as usual and disregard the aforementioned directive.
Ejiofor then denied rumors that Kanu would appear in a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed on his behalf next Tuesday at Federal High Court Umuahia, Abia State.
This is because the group said that Atiku Abubakar, the candidate for president of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), was not capable of putting an end to the IPOB movement.
This declaration is in response to a claim made by Atiku that if he becomes president of Nigeria, he would put an end to the agitation in Biafra.
The group advised the Waziri not to use its name in any Southeast-based campaign.
Ejiofor stated,We have the firm instruction of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to inform the public, lovers of freedom, and UmuChineke, that Onyendu will not be appearing in court on October 4, 2022. Let the general public be appropriately informed and guided in this regard.
Therefore, Onyendu did not direct, approve, or authorize the declaration of a sit-at-home on that date.
On this specified date, “members of the general public are advised to carry out their normal business activities.”
“In light of the plethora of calls I have received from concerned UmuChineke to this effect and the avalanche of misleading information on social media, this clarification has become compelling and necessary.
“It is also important to note that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has a number of lawsuits pending in various Nigerian courts against the Federal Government of Nigeria, its agencies, and officials.”
