BY CHUKWUMA NNAM

Following the continuous detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) its leadership has declared a sit-at-home in all south-eastern states of Nigeria fixed on Anambra governorship election day, slated for November 6, 2021.

It declared that all states in the southeast from November 5 to November 10, should sit-at-home to compel the federal government to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu who is presently facing a trial.

The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has fixed the Anambra gubernatorial election for November 6, 2021.

But in a statement issued by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said, “Following the adjournment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case to 10th of November 2021, by the Federal High Court Abuja, it demanded all lovers of Biafra and Biafrans to sit at home from 5 to 10 November to ensure that their leader is released.

“We the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from 5th of November to 10th of November except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama, if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 2021” he stated.

IPOB said its leader Nnamdi Kanu must be released unconditionally on or before November 4, 2021 “because he has not committed any offence known to any law.

According to the group, “failure to release Nnamdi KANU on or before November 4, 2021, there will be one-week Sit-At-Home beginning on November 5, 2021, till November 10.”

Daily Trust reports that Kanu was arraigned at the Federal High Court, Abuja on treasonable felony and terrorism charges.

The fresh seven-count charges against Kanu followed his arrest and extradition from Kenya after he jumped bail. Kanu, however, pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
