IPOB to declare sit-at-home order in Lagos


The factional leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Simon Ekpa, has announced plans to declare a sit-at-home in Lagos State to demand the release of Nnamdi Kanu.

In a tweet on Wednesday night, Ekpa mentioned that IPOB will be coming to Lagos after the two-week-long sit at home in the South-east.

“Biafrans in Lagos should get ready to be part of the demand to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We are coming to Lagos after the 2 week-long sit at home,” Ekpa said.

“It is time to show your solidarity to this call for justice. Biafrans in Lagos will lockdown. The consultation will start soon.”

On Tuesday, Ekpa announced that there will be a two-week sit-at-home in the South East.

He said the sit-at-home is to demand “the immediate and unconditional release of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who remains illegally detained at the DSS dungeon”.

“Following the demand by the Biafra people for more sit at home civil disobedience, the Biafra Republic Government In-Exile (BRGIE) and Biafra De Facto Government In Homeland wish to notify Biafrans that there will be a sit-at-home civil disobedience starting from 31 July, 2023 to 14 August, 2023,” Ekpa said.

Ekpa stated that it is also in preparation for “Biafra’s self-referendum and to further put the world on notice that Biafrans are taking their future into their own hands.”

The two-week sit-at-home order came hours after a closed-door meeting of South East political leaders where they sought an audience with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on resolving the security situation in the region.
