The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has called on all Igbo people living in the South East region to obey Monday sit-at-home order to avoid being victims of Army and police.
The group made the call on Saturday through its Media and Publicity Secretary Worldwide, Mr. Emma Powerful.
Powerful also added that IPOB or Eastern security Network (ESN) are not unknown gunmen or bandits and charge the Security Agencies to use their weapons on bandits and other criminal elements adding that IPOB are peaceful people.
Sit at home is going to commence on 30th evening with a candle night procession on Monday, and there will be a total lockdown.”
Reacting to Chairman, South-East Governors’ Forum, Gov. David umahi’s statement on the order given to police to shoot at anyone attacking them or destroying their properties, Powerful said “We are not attacking police, we don’t know them or those attacking police. We are telling our people to stay indoor because Nigeria police and Army will kill them and tagged them ESN and IPOB.”
“So everybody should stay indoors to avoid being victims of the Army.”
Powerful also debunked audio records going viral in social media as falsehood.
