The Nigeria Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has rejected the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for May 30, 2024, calling it mere propaganda that will not be effective.

Major General Edward Buba, the Director of Defence Media Operations, announced this during a biweekly media briefing with Defence Correspondents in Abuja.

IPOB had previously declared the sit-at-home order to commemorate Biafran warlords who died in the civil war.

The group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, stated that the annual sit-at-home event encourages all Igbo people, both in Nigeria and abroad, to honor the fallen heroes by staying at home and praying for their souls.

Once again, the group has instructed that all business premises, schools, markets, motor parks, and other public places be closed for the day.

Nevertheless, the DHQ has dismissed the order as mere propaganda and reassured the public that it will not be permitted to disturb peace and order.
