The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has set November 6, 2021 as the date for the Anambra gubernatorial election.
“Following the adjournment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case by the Federal High Court Abuja to the 10th of November 2021, it demanded all lovers of Biafra and Biafrans to sit at home from 5 to 10 November to ensure that their leader is released,” IPOB said in a statement issued by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful.
“We the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from 5th of November to 10th of November except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama, if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 2021” he stated.
IPOB has demanded that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, be released unconditionally on or before November 4, 2021, “since he has not broken any law.”
“If Nnamdi KANU is not released on or before November 4, 2021, there will be a one-week Sit-At-Home commencing November 5, 2021 and ending November 10, 2021,” the organization said.
Kanu was charged with treasonable felony and terrorism in the Federal High Court in Abuja, according to the Daily Trust.
Kanu, however, pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
Kanu was arrested and extradited from Kenya after he jumped bail, prompting the new seven-count allegations.
