The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has insisted on the removal of all Nigerian flags from the southeast.
IPOB made the remark while commending churches and institutions that complied with its earlier directive.
The group had ordered banks and other organizations across the region to remove all Nigerian flags from October 1.
IPOB also ordered a sit-at-home in protest of Nigeria’s independence.
However, spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful on Saturday vowed to dismantle Nigerian flags still hoisted in the region.
He warned institutions in the region against failure to comply with the directive by removing Nigerian flags within their domain.
Powerful also commended those who complied with the sit-at-home order yesterday.
According to Powerful: “We wish to thank all those that complied with our directive to sit-at-home today, 1st October, 2021.
“We thank you all for your compliance, and for rejecting Nigeria and her Fulani-controlled government in Abuja.
“We equally appreciate and commend those institutions and churches including companies who, on their own, dismantled Nigeria flags in their premises. IPOB will never relent in our resolve to restore Biafra.
“Any institution, company, hotel, etc that is yet to comply with this directive should stop waiting for us to remove the flags for them. They should simply do the needful because disobedience is not a good option.”
Some institutions across the southeast were reported to have removed Nigerian flags hoisted within their premises, following the directive.
