Enugu CP Thanks Residents For Defying IPOB’s Sit-At-Home Order



Mr Mohammed Danmallam, the Enugu State Police Commissioner has commended the residents of Enugu for failing to heed the call by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to sit-at-home.

NAN reports that the Police boss, who applauded the people of the state on Friday in Enugu after he led other sister security agencies to monitor situation in some parts of the state.

The sit-at-home order was reportedly planned to express the displeasure of the group against the recent detention of some Igbo women in Imo, the killing of many pro-Biafra agitators in various parts of the country, and the planned Operation Python Dance 3.

The IPOB had written to the various unions and associations in the south east to shut down businesses and other activities on Sept. 14 and posted notice of the sit-at-home order in strategic locations across the zone.

Danmallam appreciated the people of the state for their co-operation, belief and support for the security agencies in the state and the operation.

“I am glad to say that the good people of Enugu State came out in their usual large numbers to conduct their daily businesses.

“I have gone round everywhere even to Isiuzo Local Government Council Area and the report from my Area Commanders in Nsukka, Oji River is that normal human and vehicular activities were ongoing.

“We are not leaving anything to chance and we will ensure that no Nigerian is intimidated or molested by faceless hoodlums,’’ he said.

NAN reports that the Federal High Court in Abuja on Sept. 21, 2017, gave judicial backing to the Executive Order by President Muhammadu Buhari outlawing the IPOB and declared its activities as acts of terrorism and illegality.
