The Supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Ohamadike 1, has announced the call off to the clean-up exercise slated to take place in two cities of Anambra State namely Onitsha and Nnewi.
In a statement made available early this morning by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, the protest scheduled to hold today, Monday 26th, in Anambra State has been put off because Anambra Command of IPOB has already cleaned up the mess caused by the miscreants that held the state hostage for the past one week.
The statement reads: “Residents of Nnewi and Onitsha are asked to go about their businesses while waiting for further directives from the Supreme leader”.
“We are also disassociating ourselves from the faceless viral video threatening to attack prisons in Anambra State. It is cowardly, we do not hide our faces while making our statement, we are fearless. We are not in support of such a cowardly statement”.
The IPOB statement continues “Marching on the streets will no longer be tolerated as not to give room to mischief makers to breach public peace.
“Anybody found wandering near any bank or loitering with intent will be moved out. No act capable of breaching the peace will be tolerated from today, Monday the 26th of October 2020 onwards.
“The planned protests and gatherings will not go on in Anambra. Just as the criminality of any form will not be condoned, either from hoodlums, hired thugs, the police, or the army. Everybody must be well behaved, the statement read.
