The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have suspended the sit-at-home as its leader Nnamdi Kanu goes to court on Thursday, December 2.
Kanu currently detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) is facing charges bordering on treason, among other offences.
Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja had adjourned the case to January 2022.
But after deliberations, Kanu’s trial will continue on Thursday as the court has scheduled an emergency hearing.
Spokesperson of the outlawed group, Emma Powerful has announced that there will be no sit-at-home instead everyone should go about their businesses.
He called on supporters in Abuja to come out en masse and show solidarity for Kanu.
“There will be no lockdown tomorrow in any part of Biafra land as a result of the court appearance. Biafrans resident in Biafra land, as well as visitors to Biafra land, are free to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations or intimidation.
We have not asked or authorized anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for tomorrow’s court appearance of our Leader. Only Biafrans and friends of Biafra in Abuja and its environs are encouraged to be at the court premises”.
