30th May, this year, has been set aside by the Indigenous People of Biafra to honour their heroes who lost their lives during the civil war, during which all roads leading to the South-East zone of the country would be sealed off all manners of movement.
A spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful who revealed this to newsmen recently in Port-Harcourt, also ordered that all Igbo persons should sit at home at the same period as a mark of solidarity with the subsisting cause.
His words: “We should not be discouraged by the court ruling of April 25, 2017. rather, we should be focused on May 30, 2017 remembrance day, which is the priority of every IPOB member to ensure that no movement of any sort, both human and vehicular, across Biafra land on that day, will take place”.
“We must make sure that all areas occupied by Biafrans for the remembrance and honour of our heroes and heroines, who laid down their lives during the genocidal war are shut down.
“Our leader (Kanu) has been in high spirit since his arrest in 2015 and we cannot afford our spirit to be dampened towards the liberation of Biafra because of conditions attached to his release.”
