Transport companies in Cross River State have hinted that they may not release their buses to ply through southeast route following the ultimatum from Finland-based Biafra agitator Simon Ekpa calling for two weeks total shutdown of the southeast part of Nigeria beginning from 31 July 2023.

They said the decision was not only to save their buses but the lives of passengers and their drivers.

Recall that a few days ago, Ekpa released a statement calling for total compliance.

Part of the statement read, “Following the demand by the Biafra people for more sit-at-home civil disobedience, the Biafra Republic Government In-Exile (BRGIE) and Biafra De Facto Government In Homeland wish to notify Biafrans that there will be sit-at-home civil disobedience starting from 31 July 2023 to 14 August 2023.

"The immediate and unconditional release of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who remains illegally detained at the DSS dungeon.

“In preparation for “Biafra’s self-referendum and to further put the world on notice that Biafrans are taking their future into their own hands.

“To invalidate the illegitimacy of those who parade themselves as Nigeria’s representatives within the Biafran territory.

“The sit-at-home will, therefore, take place in the following order: Monday, 31 July 2023 to Friday, 4 August 2023, and there will be total lockdown in Biafraland.”
