The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has cautioned people against insulting the leadership of the group after the imposing of the sit-at-home order.
Spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful in a statement vowed to go after the people who have been dragging the name of the leaders of IPOB in the mud over the Sit at home order.
The statement reads in part, “We the global family of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the Supreme command and leadership of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, have noted with utter dismay, the barrage of insults rained on our leadership over the adjustment of the earlier announced Monday’s weekly sit-at-home in solidarity with our illegally and unjustly detained leader.
“We want to make it clear to all that the adjustment by the Directorate of State, DOS was in fact as a result of a direct order from the highest authority in IPOB hierarchy, and does not in any way suggest compromise or betrayal of the struggle as being insinuated by some uninformed fellows and agent of provocateur.
“Those trying to misconstrue the action of DOS or twist it for ulterior motives may have lost focus of the ultimate objective of the struggle. The derogatory attacks on DOS over this strategic decision are not only embarrassing but very unfortunate.
“How can anyone in his/her wildest imagination contemplate that the DOS can take any action that will or be induced by anybody to sabotage the Biafran struggle? This great IPOB worldwide family, has an undisputable leader in the person of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his order is final. The Directorate of State cannot in good conscience wilfully disobey our leader’s order and at the same time expect Biafrans to obey instructions emanating from the DOS.
“The DOS does not mind being insulted by Biafrans, but one thing that needs to be made clear to IPOB family members worldwide, friends and detractors alike is that the Directorate of State of the Indigenous people of Biafra cannot by any stretch of imagination be compelled or bamboozled into disregarding or disobeying a direct order from our leader.
