Why The Threat Given By IPOB To Lockdown SE For 1 Month Should Be A Wake Up Call For S/E Governors

IPOB (Indigeneous People Of Biafra) has caused a lot of issues and tension within the Southeastern part of Nigeria. They have insisted that the federal government should give them an independent nation.

However, these IPOB members have made different negative policies in order to force the federal government to release their leader (Nnamdi Kanu) who was arrested by Buhari's Govt. The Sit-At-Home order which IPOB initially placed on mondays caused a lot of issues within the Southeast region before they cancelled the order.

It's important to remember that South-east residents were negatively affected by this Sit-At-Home order because there were no business transactions and movements in some areas within the south-east region.

Recently, IPOB leaders threatened to declare a lockdown for about a month if the Federal Government refuses to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court on 21st October 2021. This statement was made by the spokesman of IPOB (Emma Powerful) according to a report disclosed by "Daily Post Nigeria" on Wednesday.

Nevertheless, I believe that this threat given by IPOB to lockdown South-east region for a month should be a wake up call for South-east governors. This is because if South-east Governors fail to take actions against this threat given by IPOB leaders, it may affect economic and social activities within the region which could be similar to the negative effects caused by the Sit-At-Home order.

Therefore, South-east Governors should ensure that they have enough security officers within their states especially after Nnamdi Kanu's case on 21st October 2021. This will help to prevent IPOB members from enforcing the lockdown if Nnamdi Kanu's case on October didn't favour them.

South-east Governors should start making investigations to get more information about the plans and activities of IPOB members within their states ahead of Nnamdi Kanu's case in October.

Also, South-east Governors should carry out sensitization programs to enlighten South-east residents about the negative effects of IPOB's plans to lockdown the region. South-east governors should make the residents to understand that the economy and other sectors within the region will be affected if they allow IPOB to lockdown the region.
