IPOB Announces May 30 Sit-at-Home Protest in Southeast Nigeria

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced a region-wide sit-at-home protest scheduled for May 30 in the Southeast region of Nigeria.

This announcement was made through a statement issued by the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Thursday. The sit-at-home is intended to serve as a tribute to the Biafran heroes and heroines who lost their lives during the Nigerian civil war from 1967 to 1970.

According to the statement, IPOB has directed all educational institutions, government offices, private offices, banks, transport unions, market unions, and individuals in the Southeast to suspend all activities on May 30. This directive honours the memory of those who sacrificed their lives for the Biafran cause and reflects on the significance of the struggle for Biafra’s independence.

The sit-at-home protest on May 30 is an annual event observed by IPOB as Heroes Remembrance Day, dedicated to remembering and honouring the fallen heroes and heroines of the Biafran struggle. It serves as a solemn memorial day for Biafrans to pay tribute to those who died during the genocidal war against Biafra and to reaffirm their commitment to the pursuit of Biafra’s independence.

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Calls for Region-wide Observance to Honor Fallen Heroes

IPOB has called on all Biafrans, friends of Biafra, and lovers of freedom to participate in the sit-at-home protest and to use the day to pray for the souls of the departed and for the realization of Biafra’s independence.

The group has emphasized that exceptions to the sit-at-home directive will be made for essential services such as healthcare workers, emergency responders, and other individuals on special duties. However, it has urged Biafrans living in other parts of Nigeria to also observe the sit-at-home protest in solidarity with their compatriots in the Southeast. Additionally, IPOB has called on Christians and traditional worshippers to dedicate the day to prayers for the fallen heroes and for the success of the Biafran independence movement.

The announcement of the sit-at-home protest has generated mixed reactions. Some have expressed support for IPOB’s cause, while others have raised concerns about the potential impact on economic activities and public safety. Nevertheless, IPOB remains resolute in its commitment to commemorating the sacrifices of the past and advocating for the realization of Biafra’s independence.
