Pro-Biafran group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has insisted on its call for the removal of Nigerian flags hoisted in premises or anywhere designated as Biafran territory.

In a press release on Friday, IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, stated that institutions in the region must dismantle Nigerian flags hoisted within their domain, warning against the failure to comply with the directive.

“We equally appreciate and commend those institutions and churches including companies who, on their own, dismantled Nigeria flags in their premises. IPOB will never relent in our resolve to restore Biafra,” he said.

“Any institution, company, hotel, etc that is yet to comply with this directive should stop waiting for us to remove the flags for them. They should simply do the needful because disobedience is not a good option.”

Reports monitored by SUNBIGHT MEDIA have stated that some hotels, banks and religious houses in the region have heeded the directive to remove Nigerian flags in their premises.

The civil pro-Biafran group has also threatened to declare a month-long lockdown in their region if its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, does not appear in court on the adjourned date of 22 October, 2021.■
