Banks, hotels and even public buildings have removed the Nigerian flags from their buildings, in compliance with the order of the dreaded Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.
The group, which has been terrorising South East states, had declared another sit-at-home on October 1, 2021 and ordered the removal of Nigerian flags in all private and public buildings.
An IPOB executive, Chika Edoziem, had on Friday said the separatist would lock down the entire South-East region on October 1.
“The 1st of October declared total shutdown in Biafra land. There shall be no movement in Biafra land on the 1st of October being Nigerian Independence day. Again from tonight, all Nigerian flags mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down; banks exempted.
“IPOB leadership will communicate to banks directly and give them the reason why they must peacefully bring down the flag. Otherwise, we do it ourselves in our own way.”
The leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has been detained by the State Security Service and after his arrest in Kenya.
