Mazi, Nnamdi Kanu – leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has frowned at the sit-at-home been enforced in the South East region.
Kanu in a statement through his lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, directed those enforcing sit-at-home to stop the exercise.
According to him, he could not be fighting for his people and at the same time shutting down their economy.
”As his lead counsel and lawyer, he has told me that he does not believe in Sit-at-home; he can not be fighting for his people and shutting down their economy. How do they feed? How will they train their children? Many a time, he cried to me in my presence that he wants to be released so that he can hold a world press conference and address the Igbo and Ala Igbo and the entire world to say, ”Don’t stay at home on Mondays, go about your normal duties, go to work; because the Bible tells us it is upon the labour of your hands, I will bless the fruits of your labour,” he said.
“So, I am now re-echoing again and again what Nnamdi Kanu has told me, ”He does not believe in that sit-at-home on Mondays,” which cripples the social, economic, cultural and political life of the people, putting them under psychological, psychical and mental stricture and torture,” he added.
