Residents of Aba, Abia State, have been ordered by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to sit at home during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state.
Buhari is billed to commission the 9.5MW Independent Power Plant at Ariaria Market in Osisioma Ngwa council area.
The President will afterward attend the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally at the Enyimba Stadium.
In a statement signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, the outlawed IPOB urged its members in Aba and its environs to ensure that the visiting President meets an empty Enyimba stadium.
“All family members of IPOB within Aba metropolis are hereby instructed to observe a mini sit at home tomorrow (today) 29th January 2019 in total boycott of the impostor, Jubril AL-Sudani who is slated to be in Aba for an Islamic evil APC rally,” he said.
“We must ensure that Jubril meets an empty stadium today because his murderous presence is not welcome in our land. Do not go out for any reason, do not engage in any zoo political discussion as their Boko Haram and Janjaweed army are on standby to kill. Stay indoors from 6am to 4pm.”
Abia State remains one of the strongholds of the pro-Biafran group which has since been proscribed by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
