Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has stated that the supporters of Nnamdi Kanu and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have no powers to order a sit-at-home in Imo state. Governor Hope Uzodinma stated that only a constituted authority like his government can order a sit-at-home in the state.
He spoke while addressing State House Correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House. Governor Hope Uzodinma pointed out that activities in the state are flourishing because residents have refused to obey IPOB’s order.
According to his words; “IPOB is not a government in Imo state and cannot order people to sit at home,” Governor Hope Uzodinma stated, adding that people who depend on their businesses to make their daily bread cannot afford to stay at home. The Governor admonished Nigerians to refrain from acts that can cause instability, saying they should not take laws into their hands even when aggrieved.
IPOB had ordered people of the South East to sit-at-home over the rearrest of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a solidarity to their leader until the Federal Government releases him and set him free. Following the compliance recorded, IPOB had reviewed the order to only when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is to appear in court.
