The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has debunked reports about the issuance of a sit-at-home order in the South-East on Monday and Tuesday next week.
This disclaimer was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, in response to reports making the rounds that the secessionist group declared a sit-at-home.
According to Powerful, the reports were created by government agents in a bid to create confusion and enmity for the group amongst the residents.
An excerpt from the statement reads, “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the fabricated statement being circulated by mischief makers and paid agents of darkness that IPOB had directed Biafrans to sit-at-home Monday, October 18; Tuesday, October 19; and Thursday, October 21 for our leader, and One year anniversary of #EndSARS protest.
“We want to make it categorically clear that the above purported statement did not emanate from IPOB, and we completely dissociate with such falsehood. IPOB did not issue any sit-at-home except on October 21 when our leader is expected to appear in court.
