MEANWHILE, IPOB has urged residents of the Southeast states to ignore henceforth the Monday sit-at-home. The group, which stated this in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, insisted that it had long suspended the weekly order because of its economic implications on the people. Powerful also warned that anybody caught forcing the people to comply with the “purported non-existent sit-at-home order” would be treated as a traitor cum enemy of the people and “must be dealt with.” He added: “We, the global family of IPOB wish to reiterate once again that we have no other sit-at-home order after September 14. Any other purported sit-at-home, including the suspended weekly sit-at-home on Mondays, does not exist in the diary of IPOB. In fact, after September 14, there is no other sit-at-home this week. Any contrary news or speculations to this effect should be ignored.” In a related development, IPOB has condemned the attack by persons suspected to be members of the group on Okporo Secondary School in Njaba local council of Imo on Monday. The yet to be identified persons had dispersed students taking their WAEC examination and set ablaze motorcycles belonging to their invigilators. IPOB described the attack as barbaric, heinous and stupid, and vowed to deal ruthlessly with those behind the act. “On this note, IPOB strongly condemn the barbaric act by hoodlums and mentally deranged fellows who disrupted a WAEC exam in a school in Imo on Monday. What a stupid madness! Whoever was behind such barbarity must be made to pay for their actions. “IPOB leadership is hereby promising to replace those motorbikes burnt in the school to their owners and rebuild school blocks burnt by hoodlums in the name of ESN and IPOB volunteers. “This is not to portray or indicate that IPOB committed the heinous crimes against our people. We promise to set up a taskforce to checkmate those parading themselves as IPOB volunteers and those committing this crime against humanity and our people. We plead to Biafrans to bear with us for this dastardly act against humanity they are using to demonise IPOB in the world.”
