The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced a total lockdown of social and economic activities every Monday starting from August 9 in the South-East region of the country.

 

According to the group, the sit-at-home protest will be observed weekly to demand the freedom of its incarcerated leader, Nnamdi Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) for a month.

 

The separatist group made this disclosure in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, made available to SaharaReporters on Friday.

 

In the statement titled, ‘IPOBDeclares Indefinite Sit-At-Home Every Monday From August 9, 2021, Until Nnamdi Kanu Is Released’, the group referred to the planned weekly protest ‘ghost Monday.’

 

The statement reads, “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to all Biafra citizens, friends of Biafra and lovers of Biafra freedom and independence that IPOB leadership has declared every Monday ‘a ghost Monday.’ This declaration takes effect from Monday, August 9, 2021.

 

“From that day, Biafra land will be on lockdown every Monday from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm until our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was unlawfully abducted in Kenya and illegally detained by the federal government of Nigeria is released.

 

“We wish to state full details of this coming ghost Mondays every week, our people must understand that it was designed to show the world how serious we are towards this fight for Biafra freedom and independence everybody must adhere to this clarion call put in place by the leadership of IPOB and it would be good for everyone to know that that IPOB will not relent until Biafra is fully achieved.”

 

The Nnamdi Kanu-led secessionist group allegedly faulted the operatives of the DSS for torturing its leader, adding that their plot is to kill him.

 

In the statement, the group reiterated that all those who betrayed Kanu into the hands of the Nigerian government would face the music for their actions if any harm befalls the separatist leader.

 

“The DSS can go ahead and keep our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu incommunicado without access to him and we observed that DSS operatives are torturing our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the point of death; that was why they don’t want anybody to see his state of health in the DSS facility.

 

“DSS should know that if anything untoward happens to him, we are going to confirm what IPOB is made of and they will understand that we are prepared for this freedom. Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not a criminal and has the right to be visited in their custody.
