The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, has ordered a sit -at-home protest and total boycott of all government independence anniversary activities  on October 1st to protest what it called “state – sponsored terrorism, bad governance, and economic annihilation”.
This is as the organised labour has insisted on total lock down of the country from October 28 until government reverses the increase in petrol pump price and electricity tarrif.
IPOB in a press statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, urged all markets and public places including schools in Biafra land to shut down on that day.
The statement further urged people to steer clear from public gatherings and stay indoors to register their discontent with the state of affairs in Nigeria.
IPOB also called on other indigenous peoples in Nigeria and all lovers of freedom to join in the protest to press home their displeasure over injustice, continued bloodbath by Boko Haram,  herdsmen and bandits which have become a daily occurrence in Nigeria.
The statement read in part : “We,  IPOB ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to all Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom all over the world that Biafrans across the globe shall observe a sit-at-home in Biafraland and where permissible in the diaspora, join our Yoruba bretheren agitating for Oduduwa Republic, in public protests to mark the October 1, 2020.
“We, therefore, enjoin all Biafrans and every conscious Nigerian, especially those ethnic nationalities reeling from the triple double blow of state sponsored terrorism, bad governance and economic annihilation, to boycott every government organised ceremony designed to eulogise the failure that Nigeria has become.
” This is the time to let the world know how disastrously intolerable human existence is in Nigeria today.
“If you want to see an end to terrorism and organised mediocrity, now is the time to register your anger by ensuring that you and your household sit-at-home on October 1, 2020.”
IPOB which claimed it had uncovered plots by terrorists to attack people at public gatherings that day, warned parents against exposing their children to danger.
“Do not risk the life and well-being of your children by allowing them to gather in groups in the open where terrorists may find it easier to blow them up or kidnap them. There is credible intelligence that terrorist groups are planning to slaughter our children should they venture out to celebrate or march on October 1st.”
According to the statement, the sit-at -home order is also intended to be a ‘statement’ to the Nigeria government and the world that Biafrans were prepared to exit from Nigeria.
IPOB said it would on that day, unveil its plan for the total restoration of Biafra republic which it was was irrevocable and imminent.
“This order is to highlight our position and resolve as Biafrans that we are no longer interested in proping up a crumbling  terrorist state.
“The leadership of this great movement in conjunction with supporters of Biafra freedom across the globe have concluded every arrangement to let the whole world know and understand that we are no longer part of this shambolic monument to terrorism and failure.
” As this long expired man-made contraption marks her abused independence on October 1st this year, we IPOB will appropriately declare our intention towards the full and irreversible restoration of Biafra sovereignty and independence for all oppresed ethnic groups in Nigeria.
“Complete and total lockdown of Biafraland and other terror- ravaged areas of the Middle Belt come 1st of October 2020 is sacrosanct, irreversible and non-negotiable!
“Wholesale slaughter of innocent Judeo-Christians, and state-sponsored ethnic cleansing cannot be going on in our land at the same time as  fake jamborees are being organised by the same sponsors of terror attacks in order to deflect our attention away from the imminent danger we are all in.
“We, therefore, urge that all markets, schools and businesses in Biafraland and beyond be shut down as a mark of respect to all those who have died as a result of terrorism against innocent civilians especially Christians, ethnic cleansing in Southern Kaduna and elsewhere across the Middle Belt.
“Everywhere in Biafraland  must be under lock for Nigeria and the world to know that we are all united in our march toward total freedom. There should be no public events or ceremonies in Biafraland to avoid any needless loss of lives.
“We also advise those terrorists recruited into Nigeria’s security forces to face the moster they created in places like Sambisa forest, Katsina, Sokoto, Yobe, Bornu and other parts of the North where Fulani terrorists have been killing both soldiers and civilians in large numbers.
“Nigerian army and police should direct their attacks on these northern terrorist groups and leave innocent and unarmed Biafrans alone.
“But should they feel as usual to descend on the innocent on that day, they should know that the world will be watching and that we are a people that can never be obliterated from the surface of this earth.”
