I’ll Deal With Anyone Using IPOB, ESN For Fundraising Or To Enforce Sit-At-Home, Nnamdi Kanu Vows
The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has threatened to deal with anyone or group using his name, IPOB or its armed wing – Eastern Security Network (ESN) to enforce the cancelled sit-at-home order or conduct fundraising.
Kanu, who issued the threat on Monday through his special lawyer, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, said that using his name, IPOB or ESN to conduct fundraising or enforce illegal sit-at-home is a crime and that anyone or group doing it is deliberately working against his release from the Department of State Services (DSS) custody.
The detained IPOB leader who had announced the replacement of the Monday sit-at-home with Economic Empowerment Day (EED) also said that he will personally unveil the details of the programme once he is released from detention.
Kanu said, “Any person or group of persons using my name, the name of IPOB or ESN in fundraising without my direct and express authorization is committing a crime with my name and I will deal with such a person, regardless of his place of residence.
“The details of the Economic Empowerment Day (EED) are very comprehensive and I will personally unveil such details once I am released.
“The idea of endless Sit-At-Home has been hijacked by our oppressors as a means of rendering our land desolate and forcing our people to migrate out of our lands. They have, through enforcing the sit-at-home in Southeast, gerrymandered Igboland to now exclude the Igbos in Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Kogi, Rivers, Edo, Delta and Benue.
“I will never forgive any person or group of persons still insisting on, and enforcing sit-at-home. I take it that such a person is merely using my name to indirectly work against my release.”
