IPOB declares May 30 as sit-at-home to remember fallen heroes
The group urged religious institutions across the country to offer special prayers the night before the day for Biafran heroes murdered in cold blood in the region.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group said the day would be a time to remember victims of Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen attacks.
It explained that the entire Biafraland would be in total lock down, adding that there would be no human, vehicular or animal movements across Biafraland on that day.
The statement partly read, “Churches, Mosques, Synagogues and Temples are encouraged to open their places of worship on the midnight of the 29th of May for special prayers in remembrance of all that died as a result of violence and sponsored killings.
“Special vigil will be held at the homes of select Biafran heroes and heroines who were murdered in cold blood in Biafraland.
“This year’s remembrance and sit-at-home order will be special because it will present a unique moment of shared pains and misery for all the families that lost their loved ones to war, hunger, starvation, disease, terrorism and state sponsored killings going on now in Nigeria.
