Sit at Home

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have announced the cancellation of the scheduled May 26th Sit at Home order.

As have become the norm, the separatist group enforce a sit at home order on the days where their imprisoned leader, Nnamdi Kanu has to appear in court. The order was introduced to put pressure on the Nigerian government to release Kanu. However, Kanu’s court case for May 26 was postponed which also influenced the cancellation of the sit at home order.

IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful urged he people to maintain restraint and “keep their eyes on the ball”. In a statement, he explained that the announcement was necessary in order to notify their members both home and abroad that Kanu’s court case initially set for May 26 in Abuja, has been postponed to June 28.

The statement read,

“IPOB has been informed why and what caused the sudden change of date and we accepted it, we just received the communication from the Federal High Court’s Registrar, through our legal counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, notifying us that the court will no longer be sitting tomorrow, May 26, 2022, on our leader’s case.

“Therefore, there will be no sit-at-home in regard to tomorrow’s case instead sit-at-home will hold on  June 28, 2022.

“According to the registrar, this is because Justice Binta Nyako is indisposed, and as such, the matter is now adjourned to June 28, 2022 for ruling and hearing.

“We most respectfully, urge you all to maintain restraint, as you have always done. Keep your eyes on the ball, which is the freedom of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Also, please note that justice delayed is not justice denied. We are aggressively cruising to victory of our leader, it is only a matter of time. There is no sit-at-home again tomorrow. Biafrans should bear with us.

“We profoundly appreciate your solidarity, unflinching support and prayers, which have been sustaining us thus far. Please do not relent in your prayers, we do not take them for granted. We shall continue to keep you all informed as events unfold.”
