Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has directed a complete shutdown of activities in the North, South-East, Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory on May 30.

In a statement on Sunday Kanu ordered a sit-at-home commemoration for those killed during the Nigerian Civil War.

The statement read, “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra ably led by our prophet and liberator of our time, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to the public and Biafrans both home and abroad, that the annual anniversary of our fallen heroes and heroines will be on Sunday, May 30 2021.


“As usual, there will be total lock down of the entire Biafra land on that day. There will be sit-at- home across Biafraland, Lagos, Abuja as well as Northern towns with a reasonable Biafran population. The sit-at-home order is also to be observed in all the markets within and outside Biafra land where our people do their businesses. It shall also be observed by Diasporan Biafrans in over 100 countries with the IPOB family present.
