The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will later today, Thursday, May 16, hold what he tagged a “live global address.”
Naija News reports that the secessionist leader made this known in a tweet on the micro0blogging site, Twitter on Wednesday, May 15.
Kanu said he would discuss topical issues relating to his team’s relentless effort to restore Biafra during the “live global address.”
“Join me tomorrow Thursday, May 16, 2019, for a live global address on topical issues relating to our relentless effort to restore Biafra. Time: 7 pm Biafraland Time We are prepared and ready to observe the annual #30MaySitAtHome across Biafraland,” the IPOB leader tweeted.

Naija News had reported earlier that IPOB declared May 30 as sit-at-home day throughout the Southeast referred to as “Biafraland” by pro-Biafra activists and Nigeria in remembrance of its fallen heroes and heroines.
Meanwhile, this online news platform recalls that 3 years ago a number of deaths were recorded during the “Biafra Remembrance Day” which took place on May 30, 2016, following a clash between security agents and IPOB members.
The attack in its wake left at least 150 peaceful pro-Biafra protesters in the south-east of the country dead.
They were killed by the Nigerian security forces, led by the military in Onitsha, Anambra State.
During that attack, several pro-Biafra activists and supporters sustained injuries, and scores arrested in less than 48 hours to the event to mark Biafra Remembrance Day.
