Governor of Anambra, Willie Obiano, led several citizens of the state to organize a protest today, September 13, against the Indigenous People of Biafra’s prolonged sit-at-home order.
Recall that IPOB has called for a sit-at-home in all SouthEast states on September 14 to commemorate their leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s, house invasion in Abia state in 2017.
Today, the state governor, accompanied by several members of his administration, marched down numerous streets in the state, asking locals to disregard the IPOB militants’ directive.
“The state must avoid giving urchins the chance to take over the helm of affairs. I chose to lead from the front to end this fear of molestation, harassment, intimidation.”
the governor said
Following the governor’s action, socioeconomic operations in the area, such as transportation, banking, and market activities, began in earnest around 1 p.m.
