The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said President Muhammadu Buhari is not welcome in the city of Aba. Buhari is scheduled to commission the 9.5MW Independent Power Plant, at Ariaria Market in Osisioma Ngwa council area on Tuesday.
The Buhari administration proscribed IPOB and designated it as a terrorist group in 2017.
IPOB in a statement Monday ordered residents of Aba, in Abia State, to sit at home, during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit.
“We must ensure that Jubril meets an empty stadium today because his murderous presence is not welcome in our land, said Comrade Emma Powerful, the media and publicity secretary of the group.
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.”
“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.
