The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has pledged to deal with miscreants in the South-East who are implementing the already-cancelled Monday sit-at-home directive.
It threatened to halt commercial activity in the region and warned that those who disobeyed the order would face violence.
The IPOB began enforcing the shutdown on August 9 but later suspended it on August 13 and sheduled for only court days following directive from the detained leader.
Despite the suspension, the majority of South-East residents still observe the order, shunning business and commercial activities while moles uses the opportunity to cause havoc in the region.
But in reaction, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful on Tuesday, said anyone caught enforcing the order henceforth, would be dealt with.
This statement was released after some students participating in the ongoing 2021 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, were attacked in Imo State.
According to Powerful, anyone moving contrary to the cancellation of the sit-at-home would face their wrath, saying that IPOB is not a clan meeting but a revolutionary movement.
He said, “I am happy you said it yourself that we cancelled the Monday sit-at-home.
“We said it in the beginning, but we stopped it, we have told people to stop sitting at home on Mondays.
“Anyone doing anything to the contrary, forcing people to sit-at-home on Mondays, or doing anything to them because they are not sitting at home on Mondays, if IPOB gets such people, no matter who the person is, we will cut off his ears, IPOB is not clan meeting, it is a revolutionary movement fighting for the Republic of Biafra.”
The order to sit-at-home is in protest of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest and detention.
