Ignore Simon Ekpa’s sit-at-home order, Ohanaeze urges South East residents

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has urged residents of the South eastern part of the country to discountenance the two weeks “sit-at-home“ order issued by the factional leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Simon Ekpa.

 

The organization encouraged residents of the regions to go about their lawful businesses.

 

The charge was given in Enugu through a statement issued by its President-General, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu.

 

Iwuanyanwu, while condemning the never-ending call for “Sit-at-home“ in the South-East region by Ekpa, estimated that more than 250 people in the region had lost their lives via the enforcement of the order.

 

Iwuanyanwu said, “In addition, the order has been instilling fears and trepidation in the good people of the zone, making it difficult for people to come out to transact their lawful businesses on the sit-at-home days.

 

Furthermore, the insecurity and unknown gunmen have been on the increase because of the sit-at-home order and it’s sad to see that Ekpa has announced another two weeks sit-at-home in the South-East.”

 

According to him, Ekpa’s latest action was unacceptable and must not be allowed to be successful in Igboland.

 

Iwuanyanwu stressed that a few days ago, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed IPOB, on whose behalf Ekpa claimed to be working, had directed the said Simon Ekpa “to end all sit-at-home in the South-East.”
