Kanu Suspends the October 4 Sit-at-Home in South-East Nigeria.

The detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra -IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has directed members of the group not to enforce a sit-at-home order in the South-East, this coming Tuesday. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the activist’s lawyer, revealed this in a statement on Saturday while adding that Kanu would not be appearing in court on Tuesday.

The Federal High Court in Umuahia had fixed October 4 for ruling on jurisdictional issues raised by the court in a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed against the Federal Government by the IPOB leader.

Ejiofor had, however, promised to inform the IPOB supporters of the new hearing date, whenever it was fixed.

Ejiofor said: “Let members of the general public be properly informed and appropriately guided, that Onyendu neither directed, approved nor authorized anyone to declare a sit-at-home on that date.”

Kanu is currently on trial for a reported treasonable felony at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
