Activist Deji Adeyanju tells IPOB how Buhari can release Kanu fast.

Human Rights Activist and a former youth leader of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Deji Adeyanju on Saturday said that the sit-at-home order by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is one way to press for the quick release of Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu is charged with ‘terrorism’ and treason, and is currently being held in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Adeyanju made this claim on his verified Facebook page, while mocking the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

“If the Sit-At-Home in the SE is 100% effective and everywhere is on lockdown for 2-weeks, Nnamdi Kanu will be released soon. Once something is paining them so much, press their neck more,” Adeyanju wrote.

IPOB, on Thursday through its media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful — had frowned at the continued compliance with the sit-at-home every Monday in the Southeast region, even after it called off the order.

The secessionist movement urged residents to go about their normal lawful duties on Mondays, warning that it would deal with anyone found enforcing sit at home on that day.

Since August 9, when the sit-at-home exercise initially called by IPOB began in the southeast, residents have continued to comply with the order every Monday even when the group called off the exercise two weeks later.

It was observed that residents despite the cancellation have continued to observe the Monday sit at home, following attacks launched on some people who attempted to do businesses on that day by some faceless individuals.

These individuals had at some point burnt vehicles and other property which in turn created fears in the people.

Perturbed by the development, however, IPOB said that it would no longer tolerate forcing the people indoors in the name of a canceled sit at home order.
