Biafra: Deal decisively, skin alive criminals enforcing sit-at-home order – IPOB tells southeast leaders

Published

on



The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has urged southeast governors and members of the public to “deal decisively and skin alive” criminals enforcing the Monday sit-at-home order.

IPOB said it never directed anyone to enforce the sit-at-home order because it has since been called off.

The separatist group was reacting to shootings carried out by hoodlums under the guise of enforcing sit-at-home order in Enugu State.

Emma Powerful, spokesman of IPOB, said the shooting was carried out by hoodlums and cultists recruited by politicians.

In a statement, Powerful said: “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the senseless shooting in Enugu State on Monday, by hoodlums and cultists recruited and sponsored by some evil politicians in the state who derive joy in spilling blood of their fellow citizens.

“We have severally explained that IPOB has not authorized anybody to enforce Monday sit-at-home which has been suspended since September 19, 2021. Anybody unleashing sorrow on innocent citizens under the guise of enforcing a sit-at-home order is a criminal and does not deserve pity.”

The group noted that since suspending the sit-at-home on September 19, 2021, some criminals have conspired with security agencies to attack innocent Southeast residents.

IPOB said operatives of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, would be deployed to apprehend those enforcing the illegal Mondays sit-at-home order.

“Now, we want to inform our people to stand firm in the fight for their liberty. IPOB did not ask anybody to enforce a sit-At-Home of any kind. Henceforth, ESN operatives will come from the bushes and forests and go after these criminals unleashing mayhem on innocent people and visitors to Biafra land in the name of enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at-home order.

“We also ask Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, to also deal decisively with any hoodlum using Monday sit-at-home to torture innocent citizens/residents of the state. No genuine member of IPOB or ESN operative is involved in any enforcement of Monday sit-at-home order.

“We equally call on our people and members of the public to skin alive, anyone caught inflicting sorrow on the people in the name of enforcing a non-existent Monday sit-at-home order.”

IPOB said those behind the shooting are criminals and bandits using Nnamdi Kanu and ESN to humiliate the people of the region.

IPOB had initiated the Monday’s sit-at-home order to push for the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently in detention.

However, the order was called off due to its effect on the economy of the southeast.
