Nnamdi Kanu would be freed if IPOB closed south-east for two weeks - Deji Adeyanju

He advised that the southeastern part of the country should actually undertake a two-week lockdown to facilitate the release of the detained agitator.

Deji Adeyanju, human rights activist and summoner of the Concerned Nigerians group, identified in the Sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the only way to ensure the rapid release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the the separatist group.

He advised that the southeastern part of the country should actually undertake a two-week lockdown to facilitate the release of the detained agitator.

Adeyanju made this claim on his Facebook page on Saturday as he knocked on President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

“If the Sit-At-Home in SE is 100% effective and everywhere is blocked for 2 weeks, Nnamdi Kanu will be released soon. When something pains them so much, press their neck harder “ Wrote Adeyanju.

Kanu, accused of “terrorism” and treason, is currently being held in custody by the Department of State Services (DSS)

Last Thursday IPOB, via a statement from its secretary for media and advertising, Emma Powerful, frowned at the continued compliance of the sit-at-home every Monday in the Southeast region, even after canceling the order.

The group had urged residents to carry out their normal legal duties on Monday, warning that they would have to deal with anyone found enforcing at home that day.

Meanwhile, since 9 August, when the IPOB initially called sit-at-home exercise began in the Southeast, residents have continued to comply with the order every Monday even when the group canceled the exercise two weeks later. .

It was noted that residents, despite the cancellation, continued to observe Monday sitting at home, following attacks launched against some people who attempted to do business on that day by some faceless individuals.

These individuals had at one point burned vehicles and other property which in turn created fear in people.

The IPOB, however, said it will no longer tolerate forcing people to stay indoors in the name of a canceled sit-at-home order.
