Ever since the detention of the proscribed leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the members of the IPOB have terribly disrupted the activities of the region with a continuous sit-at-home order every Monday. This has really affected the academic, social and business sectors of the region. Due to this, citizens of the region are scared of going about their activities because they wouldn't want to be hurt by perpetrators.

There have been efforts by the Governors, to relax the sit-at-home order in the region but all seem to be abortive. Just some weeks ago, the south-east governors had a meeting where they agreed to enforce the normal activities of the region by pleading with people to go about their regular activities on Mondays but on the contrary things seem to be unchanged.

Several suggestions have been made on how to conquer this challenge and the most likely is a dialogue. Currently, there are rumours going on that the IPOB has threatened to engage in a consecutive indefinite sit-at-home, if their leader, Mr Kanu, is not freed before his court trial on November 10.

Below is what the south-east governors should do before things get worse:
They should meet President Muhammadu Buhari for a quick reconciliation dialogue with IPOB- One of the reasons for the actions of IPOB has been due to marginalization and only a reconciliation dialogue with them could solve the problem. With this, the federal government would know what their exact problem because from the look of things it looks like there's more to all of these. This issue is a very sensitive one and the governors should avoid any violent act towards them because it would endanger the lives of innocent residents.
