It's a success, say MASSOB, IPOB leaders

A sit-at-home call was made by pro-Biafra groups, the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The statement read in part: "This shameless move made by DSS to ransack the home of a notable leader like Ekweremadu without permit is to challenge Biafrans especially Ndigbo living home and overseas".

"We have had enough of this mindless killing of our people and we are not going to take it again this time".

"Nigerian Government and her security agencies should respect our feeling of honour for our fallen heroes and heroines, we are only remembering the 50 years of Biafra declaration by Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and honouring those who died during the war of genocide against our the people of Biafra between 1967 and 1970".

Consequently, anti-riot policemen at strategic locations and combat ready police teams were conspicuously seen around major markets in Enugu on Monday evening, the PUNCH reports.

Madu warned members of the group not to carry out outlawed activities within the state before, during and after May 30, as the full weight of the law would be brought on any defaulter.

Last Friday, the police threatened to deal with the groups if they protested in the streets.

"The Command in partnership with other sister security agencies and relevant bodies have put in place adequate machinery as security apparatus have been mobilized to fish out those in this habit and bring them to book".

On whether they are being harassed by the security agents in the state, Mr. Egbeh said "security men did not see anybody on the street, so whom will they harass, we are not protesting on the street, everybody is sitting at home so there is nobody to harass intimidate or kill".

He said the people of the south east were law-abiding citizens, who have rights like other citizens of the country.

One of the IPOB members, King Okocha-Okparali, accused the police of molestation, harassment and illegal arrested of their members.When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Rivers Stated Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni said, there is an order directing commissioner of police in the states of the federation not to allow such gathering to hold.
