The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Anambra state, Prof. Charles Soludo, Christian Aburime has asked Anambra residents to disregard the sit-at-home imposed by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.
In a statement issued by the aide, Aburime said the state government under the leadership of Prof. Soludo would never yield to the threat by the non-state actors.
Part of the statement reads: “Anambra State Government under the able leadership of Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, will never yield to non-State actors on any illegal sit-at-home orders.”
“Simon Ekpa is a fugitive and rabble rouser who should be completely ignored by the citizens of Anambra and by extension the entire South East.”
“As for the imposition of sit-at-home orders by unauthorised individuals or groups, it is a clear violation of the law and Anambra State will never observe any sit-at-home order by a Simon Ekpa.”
“Our markets, schools, businesses and other social activities will remain open.”
“Anambra State will never be a breeding ground for anarchy, fear or lawlessness”
