Any Trader That Complies With IPOB’s Sit-At-Home In The North Will Be Punished - Northern groups

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) and Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) have warned traders in the North against complying with theone month sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) would be punished.

While faulting the order, the group said any trader that closes his or her shop would be sanctioned by having the shop closed down.

CNG Spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said: “We have seen a new statement by IPOB directing or commanding all Igbos living anywhere in Nigeria, which includes the North to participate in a one-month sit-at-home. 

According to him, no trader in the north is being threatened as everyone is free to go about his or her own business, irrespective of where they come from.

He noted that the order by IPOB is an attempt to undermine or worsen the nation’s current security challenges.

The Northern groups argue that the sit-at-home order cannot be allowed in the North but anyone who compiles will be faced with massive resistance.
