IPOB Declares Sit-At-Home On Thursday To Honour Nnamdi Kanu’s Court Trial

The Indigenous People of Biafra has said next week Thursday is the only day its members should exercise sit-at-home to honour its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, as he is expected in court. The group refuted claims that it asked members to sit at home for the one-year remembrance of the #EndSARS protesters killed by the military men and other security agencies last year. IPOB further revealed it suspended the weekly Monday sit-at-home in the South-region, adding that those who did so did out of their volition. It, then, warned its members and supporters of its leader to shun orders that did not come from its leadership. These were contained in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, which was made available to SaharaReporters on Saturday. Read Also: Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer Reacts ...

Two Feared Killed, Vehicles Burnt in Nnewi

Two persons were reportedly killed in Nnewi, Anambra State on Monday amidst near-total compliance with the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Three buses were reportedly set ablaze in the industrial city of the state while a Toyota Camry vehicle was seen abandoned along the street with the driver said to have fled. The Nation gathered there were gun shots around Izuchukwu junction of the area around 6am. A resident, who preferred anonymity, said he was surprised to see the two corpses along the road. “We couldn’t believe our eyes when we came out to see two lifeless bodies of young men. Yet, nobody could explain who was responsible.” See Also: Comply With IPOB Sit-At-Home In The North & Lose Your Shops – Arewa Warns Roads and major streets we...
