The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has suspended the planned Sit-at-home that was billed to be observed on Monday, 9th of August,2021.
This the group said was due to the National Examination Council (NECO) exams that will be commencing tomorrow.
According to the statement put out by the younger brother of Nnamdi Kanu, Kanunta Kanu, he said that IPOB called off the order because of pleas that was made by many well meaning individuals and group from Biafraland as regards to the impact the Sit-at-home order will do to the already marginalized Biafra children.
According his statement, “IPOB has listened to pleas from well-meaning individuals and groups within and outside Biafra land that we consider the fate of our children who will be involved in the NECO Exam and based on that, we decided to shift grounds over the sit-at-home order”.
“As a group fighting for the liberation of her people from oppression from her enemies, we realized that it would amount to assisting the said enemies to inflict more harm on our children if we do not suspend the sit-at-home order to allow Biafra students take their exams”.
Kanu, however said that the Sit-at-home will hold in a yet to be fixed date.
The planned Sit-at-home was to be a solidarity gesture for the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been locked by the Nigerian government.
