Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Wednesday announced the deferment of IPOB’s one-million-man march which had been slated for June 20, 2020 in Washington DC, United States of America, till 2021.
The cause of postponing the event, Kanu stated, was owing to the global health crisis which has grounded social activities to a certain degree.
“Our one-million-man march has been postponed until next year; due to the ‘impossible’ economic, and travel conditions imposed because of Covid-19. The leadership of this movement, worldwide – the very highest command of IPOB – has decided to shift it to June of 2021. We shall storm Washington DC come June next year; no longer next month as it is not feasible because of Covid-19. The social distancing rules, and laws forbid us from gathering in such a huge fashion.”
Bring to mind that the said event was to be participated by Biafrans around the globe, Christian communities in Nigeria; not excluding groups and associations of marginalized, oppressed communities across Nigeria domiciled in the USA; towards unmasking the human rights abuses, lawlessness, terrorism, and genocide against Judeo-Christian communities going on in Nigeria.
Howbeit, IPOB hopes to recall the ‘freedom march’ by next year.
