Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on all Biafrans to support the agitation for the Oduduwa Republic.
This was contained in a statement released by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
Nnamdi Kanu also appealed to all lovers of freedom across the globe to observe a sit -at- home protest on October 1 and shun all government functions to support the Yoruba in their agitation for Oduduwa State.
He said Biafrans all over the world would observe a sit-at-home to join Yorubas agitating for the Oduduwa Republic in a public protest on October 1.
“We announce to all Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom all over the world that Biafrans across the globe shall observe a sit-at-home in Biafraland and were permissible in the diaspora, join our Yoruba bretheren agitating for the Oduduwa Republic, in public protests to mark October 1, 2020.
“We, therefore, enjoin all Biafrans and every conscious Nigerian, especially those ethnic nationalities reeling from the triple-double blow of state-sponsored terrorism, bad governance, and economic annihilation, to boycott every government organised ceremony designed to eulogise the failure that Nigeria has become.
“This is the time to let the world know how disastrously intolerable human existence is in Nigeria today.
According to him: “If you want to see an end to terrorism and organised mediocrity, now is the time to register your anger by ensuring that you and your household sit-at-home on October 1, 2020.
“Do not risk the life and well-being of your children by allowing them to gather in groups in the open where terrorists may find it easier to blow them up or kidnap them.
He urged all markets, schools, and businesses in Biafraland and beyond to be shut down as a mark of respect to all those who have died as a result of terrorism against innocent civilians, especially Christians, ethnic cleansing in Southern Kaduna and elsewhere across the Middle Belt.
