The governorship election in Anambra state on 6 November looks uncertain after the Indigenous People of of Biafra (IPOB), declared one week sit-at-home protest from 5 Nov. till 10 November.
The group said the protest would be relaxed on Sunday 7 November to allow people to go to church.
If past experience is anything to go by, the streets of Anambra will be desolate on election day, unless Kanu is released before on on 4 November.
IPOB’s Media and Public Secretary , Emma Powerful announced the group decision in a statement on Saturday.
He said the action is being taken to protest the continuous incarceration of the leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has been held by DSS since late June, after he was kidnapped in Nairobi, Kenya.
IPOB said: ”Following the adjournment of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case to 10th of November 2021, by the Federal High Court Abuja, we the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from Nov. 5 to Nov. 10 except Sunday, Nov.7, a day our people worship the Almighty God if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before Nov. 4 2021.
