The Enugu State chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a pan-Igbo socio-cultural organization, has declared its full support for the State government’s decision to cancel the weekly sit-at-home enforced by a faction of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The sit-at-home was initiated as a call for the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently in detention by Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS).
In a statement signed by the Enugu State branch president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof. Fred O. Eze, the group commended the courage of the State Governor, Barr Peter Mbah, for taking the bold step to put an end to the sit-at-home in Enugu State. The organization highlighted that the sit-at-home had caused fear and uncertainty in the state, resulting in businesses shutting down and capital flight due to loss of investment.
Ohanaeze acknowledged the importance of Governor Peter Mbah’s call for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, showing his understanding of the core issues at stake. The group also expressed happiness at Nnamdi Kanu’s own order to cease any form of sit-at-home in the South East, recognizing that the sit-at-home order had detrimental effects on the very people IPOB is fighting for.
In light of this, Ohanaeze appealed to parents, guardians, youths, and the general public to join hands with Governor Mbah’s administration in ensuring that the sit-at-home is permanently put to an end in Enugu State.
