Nnamdi Kanu was never in support of sit-at-home – Lawyer, Ozekhome
The incarcerated Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has doubled down on his demand for the stoppage of recurring sit-at-home exercises in the south-eastern part of the country.
Kanu spoke through one of his lawyers, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, in a video sighted by the Daily Post.
Dan Nwomeh, the Senior Special Assistant, Mainstream Media, to Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State, shared the video on his Twitter handle on Monday.
According to Ozekhome, Kanu said he does not believe in the sit-at-home movement, insisting he could not be fighting for his people while at the same time shutting down their economy.
He cited the effect of the sit-at-home exercise on the social, economic, cultural, and political lives of the people, lamenting that it has put them under psychological, psychical, and mental strictures.
”As his lead counsel and lawyer, he has told me that he does not believe in it (sitting at home); he cannot be fighting for his people and shutting down their economy. How do they feed? How will they train their children? Many a time, he cried to me in my presence that he wants to be released so that he can hold a world press conference and address the Igbo and Ala Igbo and the entire world to say, ”Don’t stay at home on Mondays, go about your normal duties, go to work; because the Bible tells us it is upon the labor of your hands, I will bless the fruits of your labor.
”So, I am now re-echoing again and again what Nnnamdi Kanu has told me: ”He does not believe in that sit-at-home on Mondays,” which cripples the social, economic, social, cultural, and political life of the people, putting them under psychological, psychical, and mental stricture and torture,” Kanu said through Ozekhome.
