DEMAND FOR IMMEDIATE RETRACTION AND UNRESERVED PUBLIC APOLOGY TO THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB).
My attention has been drawn to a mischievous and malicious publication by the Nation Newspaper titled- “Two killed as Southeast defies IPOB’s sit-at-home order”.
The link is attached herewith. https://thenationonlineng.net/two-killed-as-southeast-defies-ipobs-sit-at-home-order/
The Nation Newspaper, its editors and publishers; and indeed the general public, are aware that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which I am its Lead Counsel, never ordered any sit at home in the Southeast or anywhere else.
As a matter of fact, IPOB totally condemned and distanced itself from the sit at home that was ordered by some criminal elements, who are bent on destroying our homeland and people.
This is contained in a Statement I had issued on the 5th December, 2022, as directed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra; and also in a statement issued by the leadership of IPOB on the 6th December, 2022.
It is therefore disingenuous and mischievous of the Nation Newspaper to attribute the said sit at home order to IPOB.
I am by this notice demanding AN IMMEDIATE RETRACTION and UNRESERVED PUBLIC APOLOGY from the Nation Newspaper for the aforesaid misleading headline/report.
Any default in complying with the demand herein made, the Nation Newspaper shall have their day in court with us.
@views exclusive rights: Sir Ifeanyi Ejiofor, IPOB’s Lead Counsel, 10th December, 2022.
