“October 1st Sit-At-Home (Civil Action)

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide fed by Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through the Directorate of state wish to commend once again the great Biafran People for the sacrifices we all are making in our struggle for freedom It is imperative for us all to bear in mind that these sacrifices which we make today will guarantee a life of dignity and honor for our Children and for our unborn generations in a Free, Sovereign and independent Biafran Nation.

Having rejected Nigeria and all that it represents, every Green-White-Green flag of our oppressor mounted in any part of Biafraland MUST be brought down and removed from all public and private places. All organizations, companies, Institutions of Higher Learning, Schools, Government premises and Secretariates, Hotels, Church premises, cars, etc operating m Biafran territory should take note

The forceful inclusion of the Indigenous People of Biafran into this evil construct has brought nothing but suffering, tears and death to our people and this generation has decided to make whatever sacrifices necessary to emancipate our land to ensure that our children will not suffer the same fate that our fathers suffered and which we their children are suffering today In this regard, therefore, having rejected Nigeria, we have equally rejected anything that will remind us of our servile condition in that contraption. We, therefore, say no more Nigeria Independence Day celebration in the hallowed land of the Rising Sun. OCTOBER 1st which is our oppressors’ Independence Day is declared a SIT-AT-HOME in Biafraland We shall on this date unambiguously tell the Nigerian establishment and their saboteur agents in our midst that Biafraland belongs to the Indigenous People of Biafra. On this date and day all institutions of learning, primary, secondary and higher institutions, offices, Banks, Markets, all places of business and places of worship shall be closed and all public transportation and vehicular movement shall not operate except emergency vehicles such a5 Ambulance and Fire service vehicles.

Great Biafrans we must be vigilant as not to allow the enemy to dictate our agenda and we must be at alert as not to permit any form of distraction from our immediate short-term objective which is to explore all avenues and deploy every arsenal at our disposal to guarantee the safety of our leader Onyendu Maz Nnamdi Kanu and secure bis unconditional release from illegal incarceration by the Nigerian government. OCTOBER 15″ we observe a TOTAL LOCK DOWN of Biafraland to evidence our total rejection of Nigeria and everything associated with it.

The Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) hereby reiterates and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to the struggle for the emancipation of the Biafran People from the oppressive and dehumanizing conditions imposed upon us by reason of our forceful inclusion in the evil construct called the Zoological Republic of Nigeria”
