The police have vowed to deal with IPOB.

The Anambra State Police Command has said that members of the Indigenous People of

Biafra (IPOB) would be prosecuted for threatening residents of the state to stay at home

every Monday until the release of the group’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

CP Chris Awolabi, the state police commissioner, commented yesterday that he and his men

are aware of the IPOB’s directive, but are working underground to counter it.

He claims he is not used to working in the open and prefers clandestine activities.

“If you’re in Anambra, you’ll be aware of what we’ve been up to. What do you want me to say about IPOB, a banned organization? We’re hard at work.

“I don’t believe in going to the media to do my job, but if you’re in Anambra, you’ve seen what we’re up to. “We’re working on it,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the South East Coalition of Civil Society Organizations (SECSOs) has urged

citizens in the southeast to disregard IPOB and carry out their responsibilities.

The organization claimed the order was damaging to the people of the zone, rather than

beneficial, in a press release signed by Dr Livinus Onwuteaka as President and Comrade

Michael Aham Orji as Secretary.

“We have received information indicating that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has

instructed the people of the Southeast to observe every Monday as a work-free day, with

effect from next week, until its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is released from detention,”

the organization said in a news statement.

“The core of the order is difficult for the people of the Southeast, nay Nigeria, to understand.

They did not arrest Nnamdi Kanu, and he is not in their possession. Why should they be held accountable?

“Millions of people in the Southeast, as well as other areas of the country, are barely scraping by.

Painters, bricklayers, electricians, bus conductors, commercial drivers, palm wine tappers, and market women selling akara, fried yam, potato, and plantain are among them, not to mention the millions of jobless or underemployed young men and women.

“We desire to encourage any organization that wants to make a choice that would have long-term repercussions for the Igbo to engage extensively with Ohaneze Ndi Igbo, among other stakeholders in the Southeast, to stay inside for a whole day every week. Unilateralism is not a viable option.

“In conclusion, we urge all of our employees to conduct themselves normally every day of the week. It is in their best interests for them to do so. We are pleased that appropriate safeguards have been put in place to ensure our people’s freedom of travel, as well as the freedom to better their welfare and overall situation.”

Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane

According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.

Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.

The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.

United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.

Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.

According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.

It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.

“As you can see here, everything is peaceful and orderly, and the rules and regulations of the party are being played according to the party’s constitution, and we are upholding all democratic and pragmatic stakeholders of today, internal democracy is working in the All Progressive Congress party,”

he said.

“For us in Lagos State, the Congress demonstrates that we are one and unified, and that we can galvanize ourselves, and by God’s help, our wish is for our leader, Aisiwaju Bola Tinubu, to be the party’s presidential candidate in 2023.”

Tinubu is rumored to be eyeing the presidency in 2023.
