The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra has said that it had no plan to enforce its hitherto weekly sit-at-home order, alleging that it had uncovered a plot by security operatives to disguise as its members and those of ESN to “attack traders who come out tomorrow for their legitimate businesses”.

The group warned the people of the South-East to be vigilant on Monday (today), claiming security agents may unleash mayhem on innocent citizens and blame it on members of the Eastern Security Network.

IPOB noted that it was expedient for the global community to be aware that it had since two weeks ago suspended its earlier weekly sit-at-home order.

The proscribed group stated this in a statement signed by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, a copy of which was made available to The Punch on Sunday.

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 publicised 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 a meeting to perfect this plan to attack innocent Biafrans and tag it ESN attacks.

Reacting, the spokesman for the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe, described the allegation as the imagination of its purveyors and calculated to tarnish the image of the police.

Reacting, the Enugu State Police spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe, said, “Police in Enugu remain committed to the protection of lives and property. We have asked all law-abiding Nigerians resident in Enugu to go about their normal businesses on Monday as police will ensure their safety.”

“This is a clarion call on South-East governors, who do not understand the tactics and gimmicks, which Fulani are playing in their desperation to conquer and Islamise indigenous people living in Nigeria.”
