IPOB Gives Update On Monday, Tuesday Sit At Home

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday denied declaring a sit-at-home on Monday and Tuesday next week.

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued the rebuttal in response to reports making the rounds that it declared a sit-at-home.

Powerful, in a statement he signed, insisted that such reports did not emanate from him and should be discarded.

He stressed that the reports were created by government agents aimed at de-marketing IPOB and causing confusion.

He said: “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the fabricated statement being circulated by mischief makers and paid agents of darkness that IPOB had directed Biafrans to sit-at-home Monday, October 18; Tuesday, October 19; and Thursday, October 21 for our leader, and One year anniversary of #EndSARS protest.

“We want to make it categorically clear that the above purported statement did not emanate from IPOB, and we completely dissociate with such falsehood. IPOB did not issue any sit-at-home except on October 21 when our leader is expected to appear in court.

“We therefore urge members of the public to ignore the purported statement and utter falsehood being peddled by paid agents of government to create confusion and demarket IPOB. Their intention is to portray IPOB as a violent and insensitive movement but we know their antics, and shall beat them to it.”

Powerful said IPOB only declared a sit-at-home on Thursday, October 21 because its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is expected to appear in court.

“For the sake of clarity, IPOB has not called for any sit-at-home except on Thursday, October 21 when our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will appear in court in Abuja. Biafrans will solidarise with him by staying indoors on that day because we are all in the struggle together. He did nothing to deserve any persecution by the Federal Government.

“We seriously warn all those behind this rumour to retrace their steps and stop tarnishing the good image of IPOB.

“As a responsible and responsive movement, we stopped Monday Sit-at-homes in the interest of our people. When we discovered that hooligans and paid agents of death wanted to hijack the opportunity to unleash mayhem on our people are cleverly blame it on IPOB, we stopped it. So, anybody sitting at home on Mondays does so out of one’s volition and not on the orders of IPOB.

“We also urge the general public to ignore the fake news that our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been taken away by foreign government,” he added.

2023: Go prostrate to Nnamdi Kanu, we can’t be deceived – Northern coalition replies Ezeife

The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has dismissed a remark by Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former Governor of Anambra State, that the southeast is prepared to kneel and prostrate to beg other regions to support their presidential ambition in 2023.

CNG said Igbo leaders should prostrate to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, rather than deceive other regions.

Spokesman of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said the North would not be deceived by Ezeife’s remark.

In a statement he signed, Suleiman said the southeast are not “sincere and should not be trusted” due to past antecedents.

According to Suleiman: “Igbos have, by their conduct, denied themselves the opportunity to be trusted with power in the near future.

“It is deceptive for them to make such overtures after having encouraged and supported Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the atrocities committed against other Nigerians, particularly northerners by his IPOB.

“If the Igbo must prostrate to anyone, they should prostrate to Kanu as the North has come of age and shall not be deceived or fooled any longer.”

Case Between FG And Nnamdi Kanu, FG And Bandits Is Pure Nepotism – Ohanaeze Chieftain

A former National Publicity Secretary of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu, has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government of treating bandits with kid gloves.

Ibegbu said the Buhari government was more concerned with the prosecution of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, and other pro-Biafra than dealing with the menace of banditry.

The chieftain was reacting to the declaration of bandits as terrorists by an Abuja Federal High Court.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo had declared banditry as an act of terrorism in all parts of Nigeria.

The Judge also outlawed the activities of some groups linked with acts of banditry and declared bandit activities as acts of terrorism.

Justice Taiwo, in a ruling on an ex-parte application filed by the federal government specifically declared the activities of the “Yan Bindiga Group and the Yan Ta’adda Group and other similar groups” in any part of the country, especially in the North West and North Central geo-political zones as “acts of terrorism and illegality”.

Reacting, Ibegbu said the decision of the Federal Government to treat banditry and Boko Haram with kid gloves is not the best way to move Nigeria forward.

According to Ibegbu: “It’s obvious that the Federal government is treating the issue of banditry with kid gloves and it’s very clear to everybody.

“Federal Government is treating them (bandits) with levity and is more concerned with Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB, and pro-Biafra agitators. Any little issue in the Southeast would be taken with all seriousness, but bandits, kidnappers, marauders, and Boko Haram are treated with kid gloves.

“This is not how to move a country forward or how to unite the country. Everybody should be treated equally.

“Those agitating are patriots. If you are agitating for something and you are not a bandit, killer, but pushing for fairness; you should not be seen as a terrorist.

“To be treating those killing and abducting people for ransom with kid gloves shows a high level of nepotism in the system.”

See Why Igbos May Not Produce President In 2023 – Bishop Azubuike

The Presiding Bishop, House of God Int’l Church, Athan Azubuike has claimed the Igbos will always play second fiddle and may never produce the president of Nigeria even when they have all it takes to lead the country in 2023.

The cleric said this at an event for young clergy in Owerri.

He insisted that the average Igbo man is a trader and not a politician as they do not have the skills to mobilise people at the grassroots

He said,” One thing about an Igbo man is that an average Igbo person is a trader only interested in profit-making, we are not interested in working. We are not interested in the grassroots. Once it’s a few months to elections, Igbo politicians will start visiting churches in remote villages, that is the sense of a trader, not a politician.”

”Let me be very frank with all on why Igbos may never produce a president but play second fiddle by asking who is coming out in Igbo land? You’ll tell me it’s Rochas Okorocha, Anyim Pius Anyim, Sam Ohuabunwa among others but since Pius became the Senate President, how many times have you seen him and others in Imo State. The presidency is not a local government election .”

He said,” Today, people are talking about the 2023 presidency and I ask those Igbo politicians claiming to be interested in the race what have they been doing to galvanize the grassroots.”

He further queried,” Why is it that an Igbo man is only interested in meeting people only when it’s a few months to any election. It’s arrant nonsense. If the program organized by Mezie Imo Clergy Forum today was held in Yoruba land or the North, this place will be filled with great personalities but here the reverse is the case”

” A good politician works before he shows his ambition. A good politician works before galvanizing for election, that is why I said an Igbo man is a trader, not a politician.”

“As a presidential aspirant, you need to move around, increase your horizon and coordinate with other zones even before now.”
