 IPOB Declared Ghost Mondays: Un-regrettable Necessary Sacrifice Of Biafrans

With the bizarre commission of international crime of the Nigerian government through the abduction of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Kenya, IPOB have introductorily, responded by declaring every Monday starting from 9th of August 2021, as "Ghost Town", across Biafraland. This is premised on the need to pressure the unconditional release of the IPOB leader, from detention by the Nigerian government. The "Ghost Town" weekly protest by Biafrans in Biafraland and even beyond, was contained in a press statement made available to newsmen recently by IPOB's Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful. The primary intent of this massive civil action, is aimed at pressing home the demand for the Nigerian government to unconditionally release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from illegal detention on or before Sunday 8th August, 2021.

Having interacted with diverse sections of the society particularly in Biafraland, traders, artisans and market women, have all made it clear that "Ghost Towns' civil action on Mondays, is a worthwhile sacrifice that they all wish to reciprocate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is presently languishing in illicit detention. They see this unfolding opportunity as one for an unmatchable sacrifice. A cross section of youths interviewed in Ifite-Awaka, Anambra State, told Family Writers Press International that the IPOB declared "Ghost Town" protest, affords them yet another ample opportunity to maintain a hundred percent (100%) compliance to a rightful civil disobedience. 

They stated that the exercise which starts on Monday 9th August 2021, will be monumental. The youths emphasized that those political elites that are already decrying economic implications of the planned exercise, are mischief makers, hypocrites and attention seekers. They also queried if those political desporadoes are truly touched by the plight of Biafran (Igbo) commoners. Why have the political elites not spoken out against the illegal abduction, persecution and detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has remained the voice of the voiceless Biafran people? Why have they not spoken about Biafra referendum which is the overwhelming demand of the people?

A cross section of traders interviewed in Eke-Awka main market, Awka, Anambra State, maintained that even if the people of Biafra globally choose to stay indoors for one whole week in protest against Nnamdi Kanu's illegal detention, the sacrifice cannot equate the very prize the IPOB leader is currently paying in the hands of the officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) because of his fellow Biafrans. They all unanimously concurred before newsmen that Eke-Awka main market must be under lock and key every Monday until Mazi Nnamdi Kanu gets unconditionally released.

With this amongst many other definitive responses in support of the "Ghost Town" protest, it has become quite obvious that Biafrans are readily prepared to make sacrifices in solidarity to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. He has unmatchably made sacrifices towards the wellbeing of the Biafran people. And if this planned civil exercise is the tunic needed to force the rogue Nigerian government and the seeming docile international community into expediting action to remedy the criminal rendition of the IPOB leader from Kenya, let it be.
