Biafrans across every part of the South-East have again proved to Nigerian government that freedom remains the top priority of the region as they left the streets and towns deserted to observe the sit-at-home order.
The sit-at-home order has been the idea of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB to protest the continued detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu and the actualisation of Biafra nation.
During the sit-at-home protest, businesses and activities in major cities and villages in South East are shut down as people are required to stay indoors on Mondays of every week.
It was recently reported that the saparatist group had suspended the weekly action due to the economic impact it poses on South-East, maintaining that the order will only be observed during the days Nnamdi Kanu appears in court.
It appears that people find the report to be fake plus the fear of hoodlums suspected to be member of the group who always come out every Monday to enforce the order despite suspension claim.
A disciple of the detained IPOB leader, Simon Ekpa confirmed in a statement on Sunday, September 19 2021 that the weekly sit-at-home order stands and will be strictly observed today, September 20, 2021.
There seems to be confusion within the union as it appears there are two contradicting orders from the leaders presiding over the group but Olainfo is yet to ascertain which of the orders is genuine.
Howbeit, as the sit-at-home continue to deepen, Olainfo is poised to keep you updated and bring you report of how the order is been observed in each part of South-East today. Below are picture proofs of how people observe today’s protest as streets and businesses were deserted to sit at home.
