October 1: IPOB declares sit-at-home, to remove Nigerian flags across Southeast
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in its usual manner has ordered residents in the Southeast to remain indoors on October 1.
Also, all Nigerian flags in the region from September 25, 2021 should be removed.
The directive was made known in a statement issued on Saturday by the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful.
The sit-at-home order on October 1 according to the outlawed group is meant to demonstrate its rejection of Nigeria and everything it stands for.
The statement reads in part: “IPOB has declared 1st of October 2021 total shutdown in Biafra land as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day.
“Also, IPOB has declared from today 25th September 2021 that all Nigerian flag mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down, Banks exceptional, IPOB leadership will communicate to Banks directly and give them reason they must peacefully bring down Nigeria flag in their banking premises before we do it ourselves in our own way.
“Every body must strictly adhere to this directives from IPOB leadership, we want to let the world know you that Biafraland is not Nigeria and shall not be. Don’t say I don’t know, a word is enough for the wise.”
