It is important to remember that the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), who were expelled from the country, announced that the 30th of May has been designated as a day to commemorate those who lost their lives during the civil war that lasted from 1967 to 1970.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had issued a warning that all activities in the South-East states would be prohibited on May 30th, and they had requested the governors in the region to ensure that there would be sufficient protection for both life and property on that day.

As a result of the warning issued by the group, certain individuals expressed concerns that there would be conflicts in the region between the security personnel and the individuals who advocated for the sit-at-home order.

However, Governor Otti said that his government was in contact with schools in the states to ensure that WAEC examinations were not affected. This information was communicated through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Ferdinand Ekeoma. He stated that they are making an effort to address the problems with the schools that are impacted.

According to a story that was published by Vanguard on Thursday, Otti stated that he is not interested in clashing with the enforcers of the sit-at-home demonstration that will take place on May 30. He stated that this is because people have the right to mourn the people that they lost during the war.

He said, “We are not interested in unnecessary confrontation with the people who are appealing for sit-at-home in honour of their dead ones. They have every right to mourn their own especially going by the history of that war.

“It’s something we shouldn’t politicize. It was an emotional period when we remember the genocidal onslaught. We don’t have any interest confronting those who are asking people to observe that moment of honour for those who were victims of the genocidal war.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
