Tangible anxiety has clasped residents of the South-East as Ipob leader, Mazi NNAMDI KANU will be coming out in the court of justice Binta Nyako at the Federal High Court Abuja.
Because of the Sit-At-Home order issued by the Ipob leadership immediately after the rearrest and arraignment of Kanu, the Sit-At-Home order stipulated that every Monday and every Nnamdi Kanu’s court appearance days must be greeted with civil disobedience in form of compulsory Sit-At-Home.
Though, the leadership of Ipob latter cancelled that of Mondays and restricted it to only on Nnamdi Kanu’s court appearance days but after the cancellation of Mondays as Sit-At-Home by the leadership of Ipob some unknown gunmen have taken it upon themselves to still enforce the Mondays Sit-At-Home in the whole of South-East region.
It will be recalled that Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja, rescheduled the trial of detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, from January 19, 2022, to January 18, 2022.
The shift in the trial date followed the abridgement of time granted by the judge following a passionate plea to that effect.
Counsel to Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had approached the court with an application seeking an order of the court to accommodate the trial in November and December this year as against January 19 next year.
Following the insistence, Nyako agreed to shift other cases slated for January 18 to accommodate the trial, which would last till January 19 and 20, 2022.
So starting from
Monday, 17th of January is routine Sit At Home.
Tuesday, 18th is Sit At Home (Nnamdi Kanu’s court date.)
Wednesday 19th is Sit At Home (Nnamdi Kanu’s court date)
Thursday, 20th is Sit At Home (Nnamdi Kanu’s court date)
South East residents are advised for the sake of their safety to please take note of these days and dates while setting agenda for next week.
Even if IPOB leadership later announces cancellation of Sit At Home on any of those days, no right thinking person would heed them because repeated events have shown that IPOB have lost control over that aspect of the struggle.
With these latest development parents should not even attempt to take their children to school.
With what happened in Enugu and Ekwulobia last Monday still fresh in their minds.
