Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has expressed his frustration with those enforcing the sit-at-home orders in the Southeast region. Kanu revealed that he would not forgive those behind the continuation of these measures, as he believes they indirectly hinder his release.
In a series of tweets, Kanu lamented how the sit-at-home initiative had been manipulated by oppressive forces to create desolation in the Southeast. He criticized the fact that the enforcement of these measures had inadvertently led to the exclusion of Igbos living in other states, such as Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Kogi, Rivers, Edo, Delta, and Benue.
Kanu took a firm stance against any unauthorized use of his name, the IPOB’s name, or the name of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) for fundraising purposes. He warned that legal action would be taken against individuals or groups attempting to raise funds without his explicit permission.
The leader of IPOB also unveiled plans for an Economic Empowerment Day (EED) and promised to share comprehensive details once he regains his freedom. He criticized the continued enforcement of sit-at-home orders, asserting that they were being manipulated by oppressors to weaken the region and force people to leave their lands.
Kanu concluded by affirming his dedication to his cause but expressed his disappointment in those using his name to perpetuate policies he believes are counterproductive to the well-being of the region.
