Sequel to a threat by the factional leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr Simon Ekpa to impose another sit-at-home on the entire South East geopolitical zone, the Anambra State government said it would never yield to non-state actors.
Reacting to the threat, the state government, through the press secretary to Governor Chukwuma Soludo, Mr Christian Aburime, said Ekpa is a fugitive, who should be completely ignored.
Aburime said: “Anambra State under the leadership of Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo will never yield to non-state actors on this illegal sit-at-home order.
“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.
“The imposition of sit-at-home orders by unauthorized individuals or groups 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.”
