Gov. Obiano leads protest against IPOB’s sit-at-home order in Awka
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, on Monday, led a protest against the continued sit-at-home directive issued by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Although IPOB had later suspended the directive, residents had continued to stay at home every Monday apparently because of fear of possible attack by hoodlums.
On Monday, the Anambra State Government moved to some streets in Awka, the state capital, to enforce the return to businesses in the state.
Governor Obiano, who led members of his Executive Council during the protest, visited banks and markets at the state capital.
While addressing residents, Governor Obiano said, “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.”
