MASSOB said:

We shall continue to collaborate and partner with every positive move and steps that will effect the release of our comrades in different prisons and detention camps in Nigeria.

“The call for stay at home which has been our recalling measure and step for effective civil disobedience is totally voluntary, this exercise has always been the life wire of the Biafra struggle.
Nnamdi Kanu “The request for closure of markets, public/private motor parks, schools and other public business premises is voluntary, not by force, it is a mark of respect and love for our fatherland.

“As a non violent organisation, Biafrans shall not be compelled or forced to observe the stay at home exercise.

“MASSOB, IPOB and other pro Biafra groups will not molest, compel or intimidate anybody to observe the stay at home exercise as all our members shall stay indoors, there shall be no physical demonstration, street march, procession or any other public function tomorrow in Biafra land.
“The heavy presence of armed Nigeria Army, Mobile police, SSS operatives, Navy, Civil Defence in major cities of Biafraland since yesterday are signs of panic and fear.

“The presence of soldiers across Biafra land will assist immensely and positively for the people to comply with our demands.”
