The Anambra State Governor, Professor Charles Soludo has declared an official end to the Monday sit-at-home order in Anambra State.

He made the announcement in a statement on Monday, 4th April 2022 where he promised that all areas of concern will be looked into.

The Governor added that the government is determined to go after criminals threatening the peace and development of the state.

Soludo also disclosed that a Peace and Reconciliation Committee with the mandate to look into and make recommendations on how to address challenges that led to the declaration of the sit-at-home would soon be constituted.

Naija News reports the Monday sit-at-home was declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in solidarity with the leader of the group, Nnamdi Kanu whom they accused the government of arresting and keeping in detention illegally.

The order cripples economic activities in the area as offices, markets, and other public places remain shut with the residents staying indoors out of fear of getting attacked.

But Soludo said an end would come to all of that with immediate effect and urged all those with guns enforcing the order to embrace the amnesty offered by the government.

The Governor said Anambra is the light of the nation and nothing must be allowed to distort it.

His full statement reads: “Following the unanimous agreement of our leaders across board, and the endorsement of the entire body of Christ, I am pleased to inform our people that today, Monday April 4, 2022 marks the official end to the “Monday sit-at-home” in Anambra State.

“Shortly, I will be announcing the membership of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee that will look into addressing all areas of sincere challenge, including interfacing with the Federal Government on behalf of all Prisoners of conscience.

“I have also offered Amnesty to all our brothers in the various forests around us. Give us your guns, and trust us to help you forge a meaningful living.

“The task of taking back our dear State and reclaiming the dignity of our collective existence is at the heart of our drive towards a Liveable and Prosperous Homeland. This task is a MUST.

“I call for your support and prayers, as we have resolved to fiercely go after criminal elements who are out to threaten our peace and distort our development.

“Anambra is the Light of the Nation, we must keep it so.”
