The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday denied declaring a sit-at-home on Monday and Tuesday next week.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued the rebuttal in response to reports making the rounds that it declared a sit-at-home.
Powerful, in a statement he signed, insisted that such reports did not emanate from him and should be discarded.
He stressed that the reports were created by government agents aimed at de-marketing IPOB and causing confusion.
He said: “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the fabricated statement being circulated by mischief makers and paid agents of darkness that IPOB had directed Biafrans to sit-at-home Monday, October 18; Tuesday, October 19; and Thursday, October 21 for our leader, and One year anniversary of #EndSARS protest.
As a responsible and responsive movement, we stopped Monday Sit-at-homes in the interest of our people. When we discovered that hooligans and paid agents of death wanted to hijack the opportunity to unleash mayhem on our people are cleverly blame it on IPOB, we stopped it. So, anybody sitting at home on Mondays does so out of one’s volition and not on the orders of IPOB.
“We also urge the general public to ignore the fake news that our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been taken away by foreign government,” he added.
