On Thursday, President Muhammadu Buhari has requested the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, to communicate to him in a language he knows.
IPOB’s proposed sit-at-home order, according to Deji Adeyanju, a socio-political activist, will send a strong message to Buhari when he visits Imo State tomorrow.
Residents of Imo State may be killed if they go out to greet the president, the rights activist said in a series of tweets on Wednesday, urging them to stay indoors.
Concerned Nigerians’ convener also chastised individuals who criticized IPOB’s sit-at-home directive.
According to Adeyanju: “IPOB should speak to Buhari in the language he understands tomorrow when he visits Imo.
“Their proposed ghost town will send a very loud message to him. Those who are criticizing IPOB for their Sit-At-Home order are slaves who do not understand or appreciate freedom.
“If they go on the street to protest, Buhari will kill them. So, why will you say they shouldn’t stay at home to protest?”
According to the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, Buhari is expected to visit Imo State tomorrow.
During his formal visit to the State, Uzodinma said the President would commission several projects.
In the meantime, IPOB has staged a sit-in in protest of the president’s planned visit to the state.
