The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) plans to shut down Nigeria on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, in honour of Biafrans who died during the civil war.
The group made the announcement via a statement released by spokesman, Emma Powerful.
The statement reads:
“We should not be discouraged by the court ruling of April 25, 2017. Rather, we should be focused on May 30, 2017 remembrance day, which is the priority of every IPOB member to ensure that no movement of any sort, both human and vehicular, across Biafra land on that day, will take place.”
