Emma Powerful who happens to be the spokesperson for the Indigenous People of Biafra, has affirmed the group is not responsible for the violence and criminal activities ravaging the South-East.
Powerful further went on to maintain that the IPOB’s Monday sit-at-home order has been cancelled and still remains cancelled, emphasizing that any of its member still enforcing it hould be duly punished.
In his words, “We, the Indigenous People of Biafra under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to tell Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State that IPOB is not responsible for the criminality in the South-East, including Anambra State. The governor should know that ourenemies are committing atrocities using our name in their desperation to blackmail IPOB”.
“It is a certain criminal gang called Autopilots that are carrying out threats against people’s lives because of the non-existent Monday sit-at-home. These people disturbing the peace of ourppeople are not IPOB members. They should be treated as criminals. IPOB doesn’t shed blood. We are a peaceful movement”.
“We wish to reiterate once again that IPOB has cancelled Monday’s sit-at-home order, and anybody or group enforcingythe relaxed order is not from IPOB. Any governor in the region who deems it fit to stop the non-existent Monday sit-at-home order in the region is free to do so. Anyone caught adding tothe pain of our people in the name of enforcing Monday’s sit-at-home order will be treated like the enemy that he or she is.
“We, therefore, warn these agents of darkness using the name of IPOB to enforce a non-existent sit-at-home to desist”.
“The only day sit-at-home will be observed in Biafraland iswhen our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is appearing in court and we shall, as usual, make it public for all to know.” he concluded.
