IPOB set May 30 As Sit-At-Home Day

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared May 30, 2019, as a sit-at-home day in ‘Biafraland’ and Nigeria in remembrance of its fallen heroes and heroines.

The pro-Biafra group urged religious institutions across the country to offer special prayers the night before the day for Biafran heroes murdered in cold blood in the region.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group said explained that the entire Biafraland would be in total lockdown, adding that there would be no human, vehicular or animal movements across Biafraland on that day.

The statement read, “Churches, Mosques, Synagogues and Temples are encouraged to open their places of worship on the midnight of the 29th of May for special prayers in remembrance of all that died as a result of violence and sponsored killings.

“Special vigil will be held at the homes of select Biafran heroes and heroines who were murdered in cold blood in Biafraland.

“This year’s remembrance and sit-at-home order will be special because it will present a unique moment of shared pains and misery for all the families that lost their loved ones to war, hunger, starvation, disease, terrorism and state-sponsored killings going on now in Nigeria.

“We remember the heroic few that stood up against tyranny especially those that sacrificed their lives to defend the defenceless and those that lost their lives because there was no one to defend them.
