But, with the rearrest of IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, the group had issued the order to push for his release.
IPOB had ordered people of the Southeast and those sympathetic to the Biafra course to sit at home every Monday.
After the first Monday sit-at-home which recorded massive compliance, the group adjusted the order.
IPOB’s Directorate of State said the sit-at-home would now be observed every time Kanu is expected to appear in court.
However, a former National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu warned of the dangers of complying with the directive.
Speaking with BBNAIJA ONLINE”, Ibegbu urged IPOB to seek alternative means of agitation.
According to Ibegbu, the sit-at-home order was chasing potential investors away from the Southeast.
Ibegbu said: “It has a moral force but is detrimental to our economy. It will quell investments in Igboland, other means should be sought to achieve the same objective. It does not affect Buhari or the Federal Government.”
