The South East Caucus of the National Assembly has applauded the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for calling off the sit-at-home order.
Recall that IPOB ordered that a sit-at-home be observed across the region every Monday pending the freedom of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB has now lifted the sit-at-home order.
Speaking during their meeting in Abuja, at the residence of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on Wednesday, the Igbo lawmakers lamented the mayhem by some nefarious elements who seized the the sit-at-home order by the IPOB to torment the lives, properties, and psyche of the people.
The Caucus urged the Igbos to go about their legitimate business, even as they appealed to the governors in the region to ensure that the residents feel safe.
Part of the communique read: “Noted with delight that IPOB has called off the Monday sit-at-home order and resolved to ensure that nobody uses them as façades to bring ruination on Igbo land.
“Call on our people to go about their lawful businesses and enjoin our governors and the security agencies to rebuild confidence in our people by not only ensuring the security of their lives and properties, but also ensuring that our people feel safe as they undertake their legitimate businesses.
“The South East Caucus of the National Assembly held an extraordinary session on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, to review developments in the South East, particularly.”
