The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has asked indigenes of Southeast Nigeria who are residents in Lagos to observe a sit-at-home exercise over an alleged attack on them.
Simon Ekpa, the self-proclaimed leader of the group made the call in a tweet on Tuesday.
According to Ekpa in a tweet on Tuesday, the sit-at-home exercise is targeted at crippling the economy of the Lagos state government.
He said, “I have just watched another Igbo Biafra Market in Lagos being burnt down in Balogun Lagos today, and I am very sad. Since after the election, Igbo Biafrans in Lagos and their Businesses have been attacked and like i have said earlier, we can’t sit back and watch. As Biafrans in Lagos will be getting ready to return home with their businesses. To this end, we will activate sit-at-home for all Biafrans in Lagos.
“This sit at home is targeted at crippling the economy of the Lagos state government, whose body language has suggested to be directly responsible for the attack against Igbos. I, therefore, call on all Igbo market leaders in Lagos that we are ready to provide securities for all Igbo markets in Lagos pending when the businesses will be moved to Eastern region. We will fortify all your markets against attackers. The underground work will start immediately. -ESN.
“This sit-at-home, when activated is applicable to every Biafran doing Business in Lagos. Both shop owners, commercial bus drivers etc.”
