The South East Governors and traditional rulers have condemned in strong terms the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) over the Monday sit-at-home order slammed on the indigenes and residents of Southeast zone of the country.

The order has had asphyxiating effects on social and economic activities of the region even as lives were being lost and properties set ablaze by arsonists in the course of enforcing the order.

Rising from a meeting on Tuesday with some selected Igbo leaders at the Government House, Enugu, the governors declared that such order would no longer be sustained, more so when those who issued the order were outside the country.

The governors were however silent  the continued  incarceration of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in their eight-point communique.

The chairman of the Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, who read the resolutions of the leaders, said, “The South East condemned the killings in the region and have agreed to join hands with security agencies to stop the killings.

“The meeting condemned the sit-at-home orders, which are mostly issued by our people in diaspora who do not feel the pains.

“In view of the information that even IPOB had cancelled the sit-at-home, the meeting resolved that governors and all people of the South East do everything within the law to ensure that there is no further sit-at-home in the South East and that people are allowed to freely move about in the zone.”
