A former governor of Enugu, Chimaroke Nnamani has condemned the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the south-east.

Pro-Biafra group, IPOB, had declared a sit-at-home on Mondays, beginning August 9, to protest the detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement on Sunday, Nnamani, who is the senator representing Enugu east, accused IPOB of using the order to negatively hinder the economy and social life in the region.

The lawmaker said: “Most of our people live on daily income. Think of the market women who depend on daily earnings to feed their families. Think of students writing external examinations being denied access to the venues. How does enslaving our people, denial of means of livelihood, add value to our quest for equity and justice?”

“If others reject us, should we also reject ourselves?

“It stands to reason that this sit-at-home cannot be a way forward. We cannot abandon ourselves.

“In our struggle for equity and justice in the Nigerian federation, we cannot inadvertently inflict more injuries on ourselves by this sit-at-home order.”
