Sit-at-home on Tuesday. Due to the earlier arrangement by the IPOB body, tomorrow being the 27th of June has been decided as a sit at home so as to honour Nnamdi Kalu as he appears in court.
Nnamdi Kalu was born 25 September 1967. He is a British-Nigerian political activist who advocates for the secession and independence of Biafra from Nigeria. He is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which he founded in 2014. The main aim of IPOB is to restore the separatist state of Biafra which existed in Nigeria’s Eastern Region during the Nigerian Civil War of 1967–1970. Read more about Nnamdi here
According to Emma Powerful, a core member of the IPOB community,
“Everybody knows that we announced last time that any day our leader will appear in court everybody will solidarize with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Therefore, tomorrow (Tuesday) will be sit-at-home in Igbo land and other areas.”
Recall that the igbo community have been in solidarity for a while so as to bring back what they once lost “Biafra”. fortunately, the Nigerian activist chose to help them achieve their dreams. The issue now is that, IPOB has been ruled out as a terrorist group and worse are not allowed to function in the country, hence the reason for the activist’s arrest. Since his arrest, the igbo community have tried every possible means to get him out of jail.
Mazi’s case was adjourned to the 27th of June and as a result of this, the community has decided to sit-at-home home in solidarity with hopes that the court rules in their favour.
Do you think the Igbo community are doing the right thing? Let us know in the comment session.
