IPOB circulate flyer ending sit-at-home

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has undertaken an initiative to disseminate flyers throughout the south-eastern region, aiming to ensure that every resident is informed about the termination of the Monday sit-at-home practise in the area.

IPOB initially declared the holiday for Mondays but later extended it.

Supporters of Nnamdi Kanu have been enforcing the sit-at-home as an act of civil disobedience against the federal government, primarily to demand the release of their leader, who remains incarcerated.

Since then, all businesses shut down on such days and every Monday as residents stay at home, mainly out of fear of attack.

On July 28th, Kanu formally announced the conclusion of the weekly sit-at-home tradition that had prevailed across the region.

According to a statement by Emma Powerful, the spokesperson of IPOB, the previously enforced sit-at-home directive has been officially laid to rest.

In a stern tone, Powerful emphasised that “any attempts to enforce this defunct order would be met with appropriate actions.”

Elaborating on the outreach strategy, Powerful said the flyers have been undertaken with the full endorsement of Nnamdi Kanu, their IPOB.

Politicians from the region have been appealing for an end to the sit-at-home, stating that it is adversely affecting the area’s economy.
