BREAKING! IPOB Declares TOTAL LOCKDOWN, Threaten To Cripple Nigeria’s Economy If Kanu Is Not Released


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared that they will be enforcing a lockdown every Monday in the southeast until its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is released from custody.

The IPOB leader was arrested weeks ago and has been in the custody of the Department of State Services.

Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony brought against him by the federal government over his campaign for the Republic of Biafra.

Kanu’s trial was set to resume at the Federal High Court Abuja on Monday, July 26th.

However, the Federal Government failed to produce Kanu in court contrary to an order of the Federal High Court.

The federal government’s lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar, announced that Kanu had not been brought before the court.

Kanu’s trial was, in turn, adjourned till October 21.

As Kanu remains in custody, IPOB in a statement accused the Nigerian government of unlawfully abducting its leader in Kenya and illegally detaining him.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by IPOB’s publicity secretary, Emma Powerful tagged the lockdown ‘ghost Monday’.

The group further declared that as long as Kanu remains in custody, there will be lockdown in all southeast states every Mondays.

According to the statement, from Monday, August 9, schools, banks, airports, seaports and marketplaces will remain shut.

The group said the lockdown order will continue every Monday and will be enforced from 6:00am to 6:00pm.

IPOB also threatened that should anything happen to Nnamdi Kanu, security operatives should not bother coming back to the South-East.

The statement reads in part, “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to all Biafra citizens, friends of Biafra and lovers of Biafra freedom and independence that IPOB leadership has declared every Monday ‘a ghost Monday,” the statement reads.

“This declaration takes effect from Monday, August 9, 2021. From that day Biafra land will be on lockdown every Monday from 6:00am to 6:00pm until our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was unlawfully abuducted in Kenya and illegally detained by the federal government of Nigeria is released.

“We wish to state full details of this coming ghost Mondays every week, our people must understand that it was designed to show the world how serious we are towards this fight for Biafra freedom and independence everybody must adhere to this clarion call put in place by the leadership of IPOB and it would be good for everyone to know that that IPOB will not relent until Biafra is fully achieved, the DSS can go ahead and keep our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu incommunicado without access to him and we observed that DSS operatives are torturing our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the point of death that was why they don’t anybody to see his state of health in the DSS facility.

“DSS should know that if any thing untoward happen to him we are going to confirm what IPOB is made and they will understand that we are prepared for this freedom. Our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not a criminal and has the rights to be visited in their custody. This is a call for Biafran leaders, politicians especially those mentioned their names as those behind his abduction and rendition to Nigeria, if anything happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu all of them should prepare never come back to Biafraland because it will not accommodate us together. Nobody should take our quietness as coward Ness. Our intelligence reveals that Nnamdi Kanu is under serious torture and humaniliation because he refused all offer given to him.

“We declare every Monday sit- at- home throughout Biafra land until our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, regains his freedom. The federal government must allow him access to his personal physicians, and allow him to sign documents given to him by the British Government to provide him consular assistance. This peaceful protest will continue ones every week until our demands are met.”

The group called on “Biafrans” to be prepared because it will no longer fold their arms while its leader “who is fighting for the liberation of the oppressed indigenous nationalities in Nigeria is languishing in detention.”

IPOB added that they are ready to cripple the Nigerian economy until Kanu is freed.

“Consequently, all institutions public and private, transport companies, schools, banks, markets, airports and sea ports in Biafra land must shut down every Monday beginning from August 9. People are to remain indoors to register their concern over the fate of our Leader and the rest of all agitators languishing in various security detentions.

“Nobody should attempt to flout this directive as doing so may come with huge consequences. Anybody flouting this order is taking a grave risk.

“Nnamdi Kanu has sacrificed so much for Biafra, so sacrificing Mondays of every week is not too much for us. Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill our people yet the federal government failed to protect our people,” the statement added.
