The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared a sit-at-home order across the Southeast States towards the October 1 Independence Anniversary Celebration.
This action of October 1, according to IPOB is to show its rejection of Nigeria and all what the country stands for.
A statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Saturday, declared the commencement of “operation no hosting of Nigerian flag in Biafra land from October 1st”.

The statement reads partly: “IPOB has declared 1st of October 2021 total shutdown in Biafra land as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day.
“Also, IPOB has declared from today 25th September 2021 that all Nigerian flag mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down, banks exceptional, IPOB leadership will communicate to Banks directly and give them reason they must peacefully bring down Nigeria flag in their banking premises before we do it ourselves in our own way.”
