Detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has reportedly ordered Finland-based Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa to end all sit-at-home in the Southeast.
Kanu gave the order in a handwritten letter authorised to his special counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, and read out to journalists during a press conference in Enugu on Friday, July 28.
Kanu, in a written declaration dated July 24, 2023, said: “Simon, this is a direct order from me. I hereby instruct you to desist from calling for any sit-at-home henceforth. Equally, refrain from antagonising governors or persons in political positions because you are not in a position to know what they are doing on my behalf. I am ordering you to make a public announcement to the effect that you are in receipt of a direct order from me to cancel any pending sit-at-home in place at the moment.
I embarked on this movement to liberate our people not to enslave them. I despise and will despise any person or entity that wishes to inflict unnecessary hardship on our people. I have authorised Alloy to issue a press statement if you fail to make this announcement on your platform.
Anybody still engaging in sit-at-home is not my disciple. Haters of Biafra and mindless murderers in uniform are hiding under the cover of combating enforcers of sit-at-home to unleash mayhem against the same people we swore to defend.
I have sent countless messages to those purportedly enforcing sit-at-home that they are not doing so in my name. I am not begging anybody to release me just that Nigeria should have the decency to obey their own laws.
The main issue which our people should address their minds to is the unconscionable delays in hearing the govt’s appeal at the Supreme Court, which is a situation not amenable to any sit-at-home. Therefore, sit-at-home is a waste of time, resources and energy.
“You (Aloy) must release the press statement tomorrow with the screenshot of the handwritten note I gave to you unfailingly.”
