The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reportedly suspended the planned sit-at-home order earlier scheduled to begin Monday, 9 August 2023 in solidarity with the embattled leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu has been remanded in a facility of the Department of State Service since June 28 2021 after a believed rendition was held between Nigerian and Kenyan governments.

Kanu’s case on the treasonable felony was adjourned to 21 October 2021 after DSS failed to produce him in continuation of his trial.

Speaking on Sunday, brother to detained IPOB, Kanu Nta stated that the suspension was due to tomorrow’s junior secondary school exercise, National Examination Council (NECO).

Having cancelled the slatted kick-off, Kanu Nta noted that another date will be communicated for the commencement of sit-at-home.

On the reason, following a number of pleas by notable individuals including groups in and outside Biafra land the fate of the children heading for the examination was considered to shift ground.

He continued, depriving the kids of their academic rights would mount to marginalization and Biafra students may suffer the consequence, give enemies a chance to inflict more injuries on her children.

He, therefore, clarified that the early planned order to stay in order tagged Ghost Town is not in any way cancelled rather being suspended, noting that a fresh date will be announced to continue.

The statement partly reads: “As a group fighting for the liberation of her people from oppression from her enemies, we realized that it would amount to assisting the said enemies to inflict more harm on our children if we do not suspend the sit-at-home order to allow Biafra students take their exams.
