The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has maintained that neither President Muhammadu Buhari nor security agencies can stop its members from observing the sit-at-home orders it gave to Igbos on May 30 to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 declaration of the Republic of Biafra.
This was disclosed to journalists on Sunday, by the spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful.
“We want to use the Biafra Day celebration to prove to the entire world that we are ready for the referendum that will soon come for our people to decide whether they want to remain in Nigeria or not.
“Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of Biafra must obey the sit-at-home order issued by our supreme leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, no matter the threat from the Nigerian government and her security agencies. We are aware that the saboteurs, evil men and women, who want to deceive the people not to observe the sit-at-home order on that particular day will fail,” he said.
