Ignore IPOB’s Sit-At-Home Order, Enugu Govt Urges Residents

The Enugu State Government has urged residents to ignore the sit-at-home order by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

The state government urged the residents to go on with their regular activities on Monday.

The government has directed that all civil servants, schools, markets, and others not to follow the illegal order by IPOB.

The Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Chidiebere Onyia, directed this in a statement he signed on Saturday in Enugu.

He said, “The Enugu State Government wishes to remind the good people and residents of the state that the ban on the illegal Monday sit-at-home order remains effective.

“In view of this, civil servants, schools, markets, financial institutions, business premises, and others, are hereby directed to resume normal activities on Monday.”

“Markets that fail to open to customers on Monday shall be shut down indefinitely and shops in the markets that close on Monday shall be sealed and re-allocated to those eager to do business in the state.

“Government extends the same warning of sanctions against schools, financial institutions, shopping malls, department stores, business premises, and others that may defy its directive,” he said

Onyia stressed that the sit-at-home order was 100% illegal.

He said it’s not in line with the Igbo cultural values of hard work, productivity, and creativity.

He said adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of lives and property.
