* Urges residents to remain indoors

The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, has shed more light on the modus oprandi of the much -publicised sit-at -home order it declared on May 30 in honour of all those who have died in the course of the agitation for Biafra restoration.

IPOB said that contrary to misinformation in some quarters, it had not directed any procession or gathering in Nigeria on that day.

According to a press release by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, there will be no public lecture or gathering in any part of Biafra land on that day.

It said people should stay indoors from morning till evening and  reflect on the supreme price paid by the foreign Biafra heroes.

“We are not against any person organising any activity outside May 30 but that day is special and shall remain so for eternity.

“No lectures, creative discussions or politically motivated and sponsored event on the 30th of May because Biafrans  cannot allow quislings to make a mockery of our dead heroes on that particular day”, the statement said.

The statement urged Biafrans to respect May 30 as a “holy day” for the remembrance of all Biafra fallen heroes.

IPOB, again boasted that all activities in the entire Biafra territory would be grounded on that day as Biafrans would willingly remain indoors in honour of their heroes on that :as

Bellow is a full text of the releases:

“As Biafrans both home and in the diaspora including friends and lovers of  freedom prepare for the annual 30th of May Remembrance this year in our unique and special way,  we the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and it’s leadership worldwide wish to reiterate again that Biafrans will bring the activities in Biafraland and parts of Nigeria to a standstill on that fateful day.

“We are urging all Biafrans, no matter where you reside in the world, to adhere to this clarion call to observe this historic event in a solemn and befitting manner. No public gathering, human or vehicular movement, ceremony or lectures of any kind are allowed on that day.

“It is most unfortunate that some faceless hired groups without any presence on the ground are still struggling to politicize this only historic event introduced and organised for Biafrans to remember and honour our fallen heroes and heroines who paid ultimate price for us all to be alive today.

“With the threat of imminent wholesale Fulanisation on the horizon, we wonder why these shameless and unscrupulous individuals and groups, sponsored by the Nigerian government, are still occupied with such inordinate ambition as to talk about organising a meaningless talking shop on such a reverred date.

“We want to assure these hired groups that one thing we know for certain is that  shame shall befall them because all genuinely patriotic Biafrans have determined that May 30th is a holy day.

“We are not against any person organising any activity outside May 30 but that day is special and shall remain so for eternity.

“No lectures, creative discussions or politically motivated and sponsored event on the 30th of May because Biafrans  cannot allow quislings to make a mockery of our dead heroes on that particular day.

“COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.”
