IPOB Shuts Imo down as buhari arrives

President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Owerri, Imo State amidst heavy security. He was clothed in the Isi Agu Igbo native attire and welcomed by some of the elders in the state, military heads and police.

Governor Hope Uzodinma, disclosed that President Buhari would visit the state on Thursday.

The governor had made the disclosure at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Owerri.

Uzodinma had stated that his trip to Abuja was to “address some political matters and some critical issues.”

Uzodinma had announced that the President would commission “significant projects” while in Imo.

Meanwhile, a report which was later denied by the Indigenous People of Biafra had said the group kicked against the visit of Buhari to the state and directed residents to stay at home. 

IPOB in a broadcast on Monday evening declared Thursday as a Sit-at-home protest over the president’s visit.

One of the IPOB executives, Mazi Chika Edoziem, stated this on Monday.

IPOB declared that Nigeria’s president is not “welcomed into Imo State, Biafra Land on Thursday, September 9, 2021.”

According to him, “all the traditional rulers, all ndi iche and every Biafran should stay away from any ceremony organised by Hope Uzodimma to welcome him.”

IPOB equally declared total lock down of Biafra on that day.

Report coming to NEWISSUES from Owerri has it that the people are in full compliance to the stay at home order by IPOB. Some APC supporters were seen with flags on some streets waiting to welcome the president.
