October 1st: IPOB vow to shut down southeast, remove Nigeria flags


Following the pledge by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to shut down activities in solidarity with its detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the annual Independence Day celebrations in some parts of the country, particularly the Southeastern region, may take on a new dimension this year.

Nnamdi Kanu has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) for weeks after being apprehended in a neighboring African country.

Recall that the secessionists’ group, through its spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued a statement on Saturday vowing to enforce a sit-at-home in the entire region on October 1st, claiming that no Nigerian flag would be flown in Biafra land.
