The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra has ‘cancelled’ the Monday sit-at-home in the South-East following the intervention of the Anambra state government and council of traditional rulers, reports Prime Business Africa.

The IPOB group who has been seeking the sovereignty of the Igbo race and whose leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention acqueised to the demands of the Professor Chukwuma Soludo government in the interest of peace.

The truce was reached at a one-day peace building and security meeting in Awka on Saturday with Mondays now expected to be declared days of prayer for the South East.

The Monday sit-at-home order, which was issued by the IPOB to press home their agitations has however been cancelled.

A confirmation, which was made on Friday through a statement by the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, stated that: “The IPOB has cancelled Monday sit-at-home order and anybody or group enforcing the relaxed order is neither from the IPOB nor from the IPOB volunteer group.”

Saturday’s meeting was attended by the Speaker of the Anambra Assembly, Uche Okafor, Vice President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Damin Ogene-Okeke, and several others.

The IPOB’s decision was said to have followed an appeal by the Anambra State government and traditional rulers led by the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Alfred Achebe to embrace peace.
