Calls by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), asking the Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere to join its purported one month sit at home in order to shutdown Nigeria, has been vehemently rejected by the group.

Recall that IPOB had threatened to direct Igbo indigenes living in different parts of Nigeria to observe a one-month sit-at-home order if the Nigerian government should fail to produce Nnamdi Kanu, in court for trial on October 21st.

The group had also urged the Middle Belt and Oduduwa Nation agitators to join its members in the demonstration.

Afenifere has, however, said it would not take part in the sit-at-home exercise as touted by the separatist movement

A highly placed Afenifere chieftain who reportedly spoke exclusively with DAILY POST said shutting down Nigeria is not part of its agenda.

The South-Western indigene who pleaded not to be mentioned said Afeniefere should not be dragged into such a move to shut down Nigeria.

“I always show solidarity but we will never be part of shutting down Nigeria for one month.

“That is not part of our agenda; If it’s worthy for them, they can shut down the country, but they should not mention us in that kind of thing.

“We don’t want to be part of it because it is certainly not our agenda. We are not in the business of shutting down the country,” Daily Post quoted the Afenifere chieftain as saying.

Meanwhile, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been warned against spreading its tentacles to the Northern part of the country.
