Kanu: IPOB threatens to lockdown South East every Monday


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has threatened a “weekly total lockdown” in the South East from August 9, 2021, should the Federal Government fail to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, unconditionally before August 8.

IPOB’s Head of Directorate of State, Chika Edozien, made this known in a statement he released.

Edoziem further said the lockdown will only take place on Mondays till Kanu is released adding that the measure is aimed to ensure the release of their leader in good health.

“IPOB directorate demand herewith an unconditional release of Kanu on or before August 8, 2021, failing which we shall commence a weekly lockdown of Biafra land starting on Monday, August 9.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the total lockdown of Biafra land will take place every Monday until our leader is released unconditionally .

“This weekly lockdown is simply one of the measures we shall put in place to ensure our leader is released hale and hearty. It is completely unacceptable to IPOB to allow our leader remain in the hands of the enemy up to October 2021,” Edoziem said.
