The leader of the Biafra indigenous people, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has denied ordering sit at home in the southeast.
Kanu said the rebels were enforcing a stay-at-home order in the southeast.
He revealed this during a regular meeting with the legal team led by his chief advisor, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, at the Department of State Services, DSS, in Abuja.
Kanu’s refusal follows a five-day stay-at-home order from Simon Ekpa, who claims to be his follower in Finland.
A statement from Ejiofor said: “Kanu has explicitly stated that he does not order any sit at home.
“He ordered all our people to conduct their normal lives and businesses without hindrance so as not to destroy the socio-economic life of our people, which has become the envy of everyone.
“The destructive activities of some hired plunderers are now exploiting Onyendu’s temporary absence to inflict unspeakable chaos, destruction, and calamity upon the sacred ancestral land were discussed.
Onyendu reiterated and emphasized his longstanding position to distance himself and his IPOB movement from the illegal and harmful activities of God’s forsaken people who mean nothing good for Ndigbo and Alaigbo.
The IPOB has ordered those sitting at home to pressurize Kanu to be released in the southeast.
The group has ordered stay-at-home orders on Mondays to campaign against Kanu’s continued detention.
However, the order was taken over by crooks who took advantage of the situation to carry out nefarious attacks.
Several people were killed while property was destroyed by nefarious elements enforcing stay-at-home orders.
Following this action, the IPOB canceled the stay-at-home order.
