THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday, denied issuing any statement directing or ordering people to sit-at-home on any other day except on May 18 and 22, 2022.
IPoB also denied a purported voice note allegedly ordering the people of South-East to sit-at-home, describing it as the handiwork of Nigeria paid agents to destroy the pro-Biafra group and should be totally ignored.
A statement by IPoB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, is entitled, ‘May 18th and 26th 2022 being the court dates of our leader is sit-at-home, any other directive for sit-at-home in May is not from IPoB’.
The statement read, “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to a purported voice note ordering Biafrans and residents of Biafraland to sit at home on a date other than May 18th and 26th 2022, is the hand work of Nigeria paid agents and should be totally ignored.”
“IPOB is not a faceless movement and does not announce its activities through voice messages. Biafrans must be very much at alert because the Nigerian government working through its security agencies the DSS and the BBC are trying so hard to create confusion in our land in their attempt to set Biarrans against themselves and scuttle our struggle for liberation. But we assure them that Biafrans know their plans and will not fall for their evil agenda.
“Like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said, if you did not hear it on radio Biafra then it is not from IPOB. IPOB announce its activities and events only through official channels which include. Radio Biafra, Press Statement from Emma Powerful, office of IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, and Memo from the Office of IPOB Head of Directorates.
“To this end therefore, the only Sit-At- Home order or directive emanating and announced by IPOB leadership are the 18th and 26th of May, 2022 being the dates our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will appear in court. The IPOB leadership is very strategic in its actions and directives to the Biafran people knowing fully well that our enemies are desperate to scuttle this heaven ordained freedom movement.
“Our core responsibility is the well-being of Biafrans all over the globe, but with added emphasis on the well-being of Biarrans in the homeland of Biafra. Those behind the purported voice note should go inform their pay masters to stop dissipating their energy and resources on a hopeless attempt to stop the collective will and decision of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, worldwide to pursue our self determination right.
“Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom across the world and especially in Biafra land should therefore, pay no heed to faceless DSS agents and impostors recruited to serve the interest of Caliphate and occupiers of Aso Rock.”
