The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State did not stop the sit at home order in the state.
IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, stated this in a release he signed in reaction to a statement credited to Uzodinma.
Powerful said Uzodinma could not have stopped the sit at home order because IPOB initiated it and urged Nigerians to ignore the statement by the governor.
“The group cancelled the order based on the advice of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,” he said.
“IPOB wishes to remind Hope Uzodinma that he does not have the capacity to stop any sit-at-home initiated by IPOB. Yes, IPOB started the infamous Sit-at-home last year, but subsequently cancelled it as advised by our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu due to appeals from the elders and traditional rulers in the territory.
“Hope Uzodinma coming to say that he stopped IPOB’s sit-at-home order in Imo state shows that he is not properly informed. IPOB cannot give order and Hope Uzodinma will stop it.”
