Sit-At-Home: Delta State Government Reacts To Sit-At-Home “Threats” In Delta State
16 May 2022
The Delta State Government has reacted to the disruption that occurred earlier today in an effort to enforce the Monday Sit-At-Home order in some parts of Delta State today.
Recall that since the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra by the DSS, some unknown armed agents have given a directive for a compulsory Sit-At-Home in Southeast. The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB have denied association with the group.
There were attacks in parts of southeast today especially Anambra. This was happening few hours after Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo, executive Governor of Anambra State paid a visit to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra in his DSS detention facility in Abuja.
Similarly, there were disruption in Delta State which caused tension in the state.
Reacting to this in a statement signed by Patrick Ukah, Secretary to the State on behalf of the State Government, the State Government have stated her resolve to stop any threat to life and property by unknown groups trying to “disrupt the peace currently being enjoyed in Asaba and other neighboring towns”
He further stated that “security agencies have been put on red alert and mandated to ensure that such threats by unscrupulous element are promptly nipped in the mud.”
Finally, residents are advised to go about their normal businesses and assured of government’s commitment to ensuring their safety.
