The self-proclaimed Biafra Prime Minister and freedom advocate has once again issued a two-week sit-at-home directive in the South East region.
Simon, who previously ordered a sit-at-home last week, has outlined five reasons why the people of the South East should comply with the recent order.
He emphasized that the immediate and unconditional release of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is of utmost importance, and the sit-at-home is intended to facilitate the quest for Biafra’s freedom.
His statement read as follows: “In response to the Biafran people’s demand for increased civil disobedience through sit-at-home actions, the Biafra Republic Government In-Exile (BRGIE) and Biafra De Facto Government In Homeland would like to inform Biafrans that there will be sit-at-home civil disobedience from July 31, 2023, to August 14, 2023.
“The immediate and unconditional release of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently being unlawfully detained in the DSS custody, is a non-negotiable demand.
“In preparation for Biafra’s self-referendum and to demonstrate to the world that Biafrans are taking charge of their own future.
“To challenge the illegitimacy of those who claim to represent Nigeria within Biafran territory.
“The sit-at-home will be observed as follows: Monday, July 31, 2023, to Friday, August 4, 2023, with a complete lockdown in Biafraland.
“On Saturday, August 6, and Sunday, August 7, the two-week sit-at-home will be temporarily suspended, and all Biafran markets will be open.
“From Monday, August 7, to Friday, August 11, there will be a total lockdown in Biafraland. On Saturday, August 12, and Sunday, August 13, 2023, a break will be observed, and all Biafran markets will resume normal operations.
“Monday, August 14, will witness a complete lockdown in Biafraland. We urge all market leaders to strictly comply with this order and treat it with the utmost seriousness.
“We also call upon all oil companies operating in Biafran territory to halt oil exploration during these dates to avoid the wrath of the Biafran people, as it may result in severe consequences.”
