Sit-at-home: IPOB’s New Directive Commendable – Ohanaeze Youths

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been praised by the youth section of the main Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, for calling off the weekly sit-at-home protest.

The injunction, which was supposed to be in effect until Monday, was revised early Saturday morning and is now only in effect on days when IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in court.

Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the President-General of the OYC, said the IPOB made a commendable decision in a statement released on Saturday.

He praised the organization for following its earlier advice and urged Southeast leaders to achieve Kanu’s release as soon as possible.

The following was the statement:

“We received with great delight the news that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has suspended the sit-at-home order which was to be observed every Monday.

This has shown that the IPOB is sensitive to be feelings of the Igbo masses who are being affected economically, educationally and other various ways by that order.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Worldwide is gladdened that the agitators listened to our earlier appeal that other diplomatic channels, involving Igbo leaders should be explored in seeking the freedom of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

We say that this decision by the IPOB family should be utilized by the Igbo leaders to meet with the Federal Government and ensure unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who we continue to say is a political prisoner.

In the interest of peace, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Government which has been releasing Boko Haram terrorists under the guise of rehabilitation should have no justification to continue hounding Nnamdi Kanu in detention.

Once again, we commend the IPOB for this great decision, as we urge all Ndigbo to speak with one voice and continue to demand Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom.”
