The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, proposed ait at home on Thursday the day president Buhari is coming to Oweeri to speak to President Muhammadu Buhari in a language he understands which everyone, comply with.
Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu, has applauded Imo residents for implementing the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) following the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari in the state.
Amid tight security, President Buhari arrived in Imo on Thursday wearing Igbo attire.
Following Buhari’s arrival, the streets, banks, schools were deserted by residents of the state.
Reacting to compliance in the state, Aisha Yesufu noted that sit-at-home order appears to be an effective weapon when strategically deployed.
Deji Adeyanju, a socio-political and human rights activist, said IPOB’s proposed sit-at-home order would send a very loud message to Buhari when he visits Imo State on Thursday, the convener of Concerned Nigerians also faulted those criticizing IPOB over the sit-at-home order.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, the rights activist warned that residents of Imo State may be killed if they troop out to welcome the president; hence the need to stay indoors.
According to Adeyanju: “IPOB should speak to Buhari in the language he understands tomorrow when he visits Imo.
“Their proposed ghost town and live up to their promise to send a very loud message to him. Those who are criticising IPOB for their sit-at-home order are slaves who do not understand or appreciate freedom.
“If they go on the street to protest, Buhari will kill them. So, why will you say they shouldn’t stay at home to protest?”
