OPINION: Why The Sit-At-Home Order by IPOB On Independence Day Should Be Averted

The activities of the Indigenous People Of Biafra in the South-East region of Nigeria for the past few months have been a thing of concern in the country. Since the arrest of the group leader, Nnamdi Kanu, the proscribed group has grown wild wings and has been terrorizing the peaceful coexisting of the people of Nigeria.

IPOB has been giving strict orders to the people of the Southeast, forcing them into compliance. The proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, has been ordering the Southeast people not to go around with their normal daily activities every Monday of the week, and this order is being observed in the region forcefully.

For many weeks, the people of the Southeast were denied free movement on Mondays. They had to stay in their houses due to fear of being attacked by the outlawed group members if they failed to comply.

Many reports showed that the people who failed to comply with the order of the proscribed group were severely dealt with, while some of them lost valuable goods in the process.

Just the way the group has been forcing the people of Southeast to comply with their orders, IPOB has once again issued a Sit-at-home order on the 1st of October, which is regarded as the Independent Day in Nigeria.

IPOB has ordered everyone in the Southeast region to stay at home on the 1st of October and to also bring down all the Nigeria flags in the region. This order is nothing but a threat to the peaceful living of Nigerians across the country.

It is shameful and unreasonable of IPOB to give such an order to the Southeast people on the day they are expected to be celebrating the emancipation of Nigeria from the hands of its colonisers in 1960.

The decision to keep people of the Southeast from joining their brothers across the country to celebrate that great is not only unacceptable but also evil and unconstitutional. Therefore, it is up to the governor of each state in the Southeast to stand on their feet and avert any further order from the outlawed group, IPOB.

The governors of all the states in the Southeast should make sure the people of the region participate in the celebration of Nigeria's Independence as the case may be. If IPOB should succeed in its plan to clampdown the region on the 1st of October, and prevent the people from celebrating Nigeria's independence as they should as Nigerians, there is only one thing the group is trying to portray and that is, to tell the whole world that Southeast is not part of Nigeria that gained independence on October 1st, 1960.
