The South-East Governors and traditional rulers on Tuesday, October 5, condemned the Indigenous People of Biafra over the Monday sit-at-home order, saying it has had negative effects on the economy of the region.
After their meeting at the Government House, Enugu, on Tuesday, the leaders declared that such order can no longer be sustained, as those who issued the order live outside the country.
In their eight-point communique, the leaders refused to discuss the incarceration of embattled IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu
The chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, who read the resolutions of the governors, said;
“The South-East condemned the killings in the region and have agreed to join hands with security agencies to stop the killings.
“The meeting condemned the sit-at-home orders, which are mostly issued by our people in diaspora who do not feel the pains.
“In view of the information that even IPOB had cancelled the sit-at-home, the meeting resolved that governors and all people of the South East do everything within the law to ensure that there is no further sit-at-home in the South East and that people are allowed to freely move about in the zone.”
