The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said it will no longer enforce its weekly sit-at-home order.
This was made known through a statement signed by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Director of Media and Publicity, and made available to newsmen on Sunday.
According to IPOB, the move was necessitated due to the uncovering of a plot by security operatives to disguise as its members and those of ESN to “attack traders who come out tomorrow (Monday) for their legitimate businesses”.
The group then warned the people of the South-East to be vigilant today, claiming security agents may unleash mayhem on innocent citizens and blame it on members of the Eastern Security Network.
IPOB maintained that the global community needed to be aware that it had since two weeks ago suspended its earlier weekly sit-at-home order.
The statement read in part, “The intelligence unit of IPOB has uncovered secret plots by the Nigeria security agencies, most especially the DSS and the police to disguise as IPOB and ESN operatives to attack traders who come out tomorrow for their legitimate businesses.
“IPOB restates that there is no longer Ghost Mondays in Biafra land in solidarity with our detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Sit-at-home will only be observed on the days our leader will be making appearances in court. Such days will be well-publicized ahead of time.
“Everybody is hereby placed on alert about this wicked plot. IPOB will not tolerate any attack on any Biafran or resident of Biafra under any guise.
“Security agencies have perfected plans to unleash attacks on innocent people in the name of ESN and IPOB volunteers. We have no plans again to enforce any sit-at-home order.
“We understand that all DPOs, DCOs other senior police officers in Enugu held meetings to perfect this plan to attack innocent Biafrans and tag it ESN attacks”.
