Why the order to declare sit-at-home twice this week should be rejected in the S'East

Nobody should expect that things will be better this week in the South East, if the issue bordering on seccession activities in the South East halts business activities twice this week. This Monday, which has been claimed by the sit-at-home, may not be the only day that the sit-at-home may be observed this week.

Presently, in the South East, Mondays have become a nightmare for citizens, following attacks received from an unidentified group of people who always enforce the closure of business activities in parts of the East. Many people who have either opened their shops or moved on with their Keke tricycle business were either beaten mercilessly, or destroyed their motorcycles. The order of the sit-at-home is not justified by any law of the land.

This week's issue has become a worrying one, because the outlawed IPOB group leader, Nnamdi Kanu, will be appearing in court on Thursday, September 21, 2021, suggesting that they may declare it a sit-at-home day too, because they have already begun to threaten many things about the court proceeding. The leader of the seccessionist group who was not presented to the court by the DSS is billed to continue with his trial.

Many people have started purchasing things that they may keep at home as food if the sit-at-home order persists. If this is allowed to go unchecked, the citizens are likely going to suffer untold hardship and poverty this week, because closing shops for two days without any reason will hurt many families whose income is based on daily activities, some depend on cooking and selling food to customers on a daily basis, etc. People will suffer if this menace is not put to rest. As it is, the citizens are helpless without knowing what to do in this kind of situation where the South East's leaders are not doing enough to end this ugly trend that is ravaging the economy of the people of the East. Let the government think about this and see how things can get better for the citizens to avoid more deaths. If this problem is not nipped in the bud, it suggests that any week the outlawed group leader will appear in court and that two days in that week may be declared a "no business day."

What do you think about this? What are the remedies for this evil?
