Biafra Sit At Home: Umahi Makes Uturn



Governor David Nweze Umahi, of Ebonyi State, has backtracked on his word as he charged his people to defend themselves against the attacks of IPOB..

You could recall Umahi, warned that traders who obeyed the sit-at-home order on Monday, May 31, would lose their businesses, urged those without weapons to obtain cutlasses for self-defense.

In an interesting turn of events, Umahi has backtracked on his word as he has asked his people to stay at home. Francis Nwaze, Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity issued a statement on behalf of the governor.

The statement read: The Government of Ebonyi State has received several requests from some families and residents of the State, requesting that they would like to remain indoors on Monday, May 31, 2021, to organize private family prayers in honor of their loved ones who were murdered during the unfortunate civil war. Some of the people with this special request own shops in some of our markets across the state.

While as a government, we remain resolute in the protection of lives and property of Ebonyians and all residents of Ebonyi State, we are aware that it is the right of anyone to remain at home or go about his/her normal businesses in this regard.

Following the foregoing, the Governor, Engr. David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE who is highly in touch with the people has directed that those who may wish to remain at home with their shop(s) locked should neither be penalized, nor their shop(s) seized as it is their constitutional right while the rights of those who may wish to go about their normal businesses should not be infringed upon as it is equally their constitutional right.

He has also directed security agencies to do everything possible to maintain law and order in the entire Ebonyi State while maintaining the ban of any procession and gathering of any kind throughout the state.
