Anambra state governor, Willie Obiano, today September 13, led some residents of the state to stage a protest against the continued sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra.
IPOB had ordered a sit-at-home in all the South East states tomorrow September 14 in remembrance of Biafrans killed during the war.
Today, the state governor in the company of some members of his administration, moved across several streets in the state, advising the residents of the state to ignore the directive from the IPOB members.
“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 activities, including transportation, banking and market activities sprang up around 1 pm in the area in earnest.
