Few days to the much anticipated Anambra State governorship election which is scheduled to hold on Saturday, November 6, the Indigenous People of of Biafra (IPOB) has declared total lockdown in all states in south East from November 5 to November 10.

The group in a statement signed by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, said the sit-at-home order is to compel the federal government to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

“Following the adjournment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case to 10th of November 2021, by the Federal High Court Abuja, it demanded all lovers of Biafra and Biafrans to sit at home from 5 to 10 November to ensure that their leader is released.

We the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from 5th of November to 10th of November except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama, if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 2021,” the statement reads.
