Ohanaeze Ndigbo has urged citizens of the South-East region to go about their normal activities as the era of Monday sit-at-home is over.
Recall that the Indigenous People of Biafra had usually enforced the order to honour its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services.
However, despite a cancellation of the order, citizens have been afraid to go about their normal activities in the region.
Reacting via a statement made available to newsmen, Ohanaeze spokesman, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, urged the people t go about their normal activities without fear.
The statement titled ‘No more sit at home’, reiterated that the leadership of IPOB had cancelled the Monday sit-at-home order they had earlier issued.
It said, “The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Ambassador George Obiozor, uses this opportunity to appreciate the understanding and maturity exhibited by the IPOB during the Anambra State governorship election and the cancellation of the Monday sit-at-home.
“They have indeed scored two major points: First, the Igbo detractors and doomsayers were disappointed that the election was a resounding success. Second is that the IPOB can listen to appeal by the elders.

“It is very heartwarming that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, traditional rulers, archbishops, governors, eminent persons, women groups, the political class, the academia, etc in Igbo land are united in the Release-Nnamdi-Kanu-Project.
“This has proved to the sceptics that the Igbo unity is incontrovertible and that they can also be mobilised within a very short time.”
