Why Igbos Obey Nnamdi Kanu Sit At Home Order – Ex AIG
A Retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Adedayo Adeoye, has described the sit-at-home order issued by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra led by Nnamdi Kanu, as a rebellion against the Federal Government.
He also said people in the South-Eastern part of the country complied with IPOB’s sit-at-home order for fear of being attacked while some obeyed because they support IPOB.
Adeoye stated this in an exclusive interview with The Brtshadow.com on Monday.
The Brtshadow.com had earlier reported that commercial activities came to a standstill on Monday in Imo, Anambra, Enugu, Abia, and Ebonyi States as residents deserted public places in compliance with IPOB’s sit-at-home order.
IPOB, through its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, had said human and vehicular movement would be restricted across the South-East on Monday to mark the 54th anniversary of Biafra.
As a result, IPOB said all markets, parks, schools, airports and others would be shut down.
The state governments and the police had asked the people to ignore the separatist group’s sit-at-home order.
But The Brtshadow.com reports that commercial banks, schools, shops, malls, and other public places were all shut in the South-East on Monday. Also, commercial and private vehicles deserted the roads.
Commenting on the development, retired DIG Adeoye said, “It is a rebellion against the government, both the state and federal government. It is the beginning of insurrection. A proscribed group cannot just issue a sit-at-home on a section of the country. I believe there is a connivance between the group (IPOB) and the people of the region. That they stayed at home means they support what is happening there. Another way to look at it is that that the people stayed at home because they fear they would be attacked.”
The retired DIG further said the rising insecurity in the South-East will affect the 2023 general elections as people might be afraid to come out and vote.
