” In this part of the country, the politics of agitation for a separate state has created a state of fear that has permeated the entire population. ” Over time, the IPOB has been successful in enforcing the sit- at- home order. As a result, the fear of IPOB has evolved into the beginning of wisdom. ”

A lot of people were worried about the IPOB’ s call to stay at home ahead of the governorship election in Anambra State.

According to IPOB, the order to stay at home was issued in order to pressure the Federal Government into releasing its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

However, the group called for the repeal of the sit- at- home order just a few hours before the start of the election and asked inhabitants of the state to come out and vote without being intimidated.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is a Nigerian separatist movement that calls for the independence of Biafra. This movement’ s primary goal is to restore an independent state of Biafra in Nigeria’ s historic Old Eastern Region, which includes primarily today’ s South- East and South- South regions of the country, as well as portions of Nigeria’ s Middle Belt states, such as Benue and Kogi, through an independence referendum.

Founded in 2012 by Nnamdi Kanu, a British Nigerian political activist who is well- known for his outspoken endorsement of the present Biafran independence cause, the group has grown in popularity. In 2017, it was designated as a terrorist organization under the Nigerian Terrorism Act.
