Charles Soludo, the newly inaugurated governor of Anambra, has announced that the weekly sit-at-home order sanctioned by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will officially come to an end on Monday, April 4, 2022.
The governor disclosed this during a stakeholder meeting in Awka on Saturday, April 2, 2022. The meeting was attended by traditional and religious leaders as well as youth leaders across Anambra State. Security agencies were also represented at the important event.
The governor, who assumed office two weeks ago, lamented the continuous attacks on security agents and public buildings by unknown gunmen, suspected to be IPOB members, in the state.
The theme of the meeting is “Come, let’s reason together.” The governor pleaded with the promoters of violence in Anambra State to stop and work with his administration for a new era.
Soludo added that the weekly sit-at-home must come to an end with immediate effect.
The governor announced at the event that a bell will ring in the state on Monday to signal prayer and mark the end of sit-at-home in Anambra State.
