The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have openly denied the issuance of the sit-at-home order in Lagos State.
IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful has described the accusations as false.
Powerful said the reported order was the handiwork of those trying to blackmail IPOB.
In a statement, Powerful said: “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU has been drawn to the laughable and disgraceful statement making rounds in the zoo that the noble movement of IPOB issued a sit at home order in Lagos State.
“The statement is false, laughable, and coming from the quarters of blackmailers to disparage IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“IPOB has never issued any sit-at-home order outside Biafra Land. Anyone issuing any sit-at-home orders in Biafra or Lagos is on his or her own and not doing so on behalf of Mazi Nnamdi KANU or IPOB.
“Therefore, IPOB publicly disassociates ourselves from any purported sit-at-home call in Lagos or anywhere in Nigeria, including Biafra Land at this time.
“Any day IPOB issues a sit-at-home order, the reasons for the sit-at-home will be made public, and it will be observed only in Biafra Region and any other regions that may like to join.”
