Sit-At-Home: Senator Ifeanyi Uba And Nnewi Vigilante Men Parade In Show Of Force (Video)

The senator representing Anambra South, Ifeanyi Ubah has joined forces with security operatives to kick against sit-at-home order in Anambra state.

This is as the government of Governor Chukwuma Soludo urged the people of the state to shun an order for a one-week sit-at-home.

Reacting on Monday during a live interview on Channels Television’s Lunchtime Politics after parading the streets with security operatives to derail the activities of non-state actors, the lawmaker said: 

“We have observed the sit-at-home for nearly two years now and every Monday, all business activity in our state is paralysed,”

“Because of that, we the stakeholders of my senatorial district have come to a conclusion that it’s time for us to open our businesses on Monday.”

There have been several reports of attacks on residents who defied the sit-at-home order of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

“Some people who are not residents of our zone or even in the country have used this sit-at-home to create fear in people and, at the same time, are making money and impoverishing our people. It is time for us to move on,” the senator said.

He decried that schools in the entire state were closed each Monday as the world moved forward. 

“If the world is moving on and almost every part of this country is moving on and our children would not be going to school, our businesses are closed, then we are losing a very serious economy,” he said.

“That is the essence of our being elected: to serve our people and to look at what is good for our people.”

The entrepreneur-turned-lawmaker criticised the continued detention of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) as the excuse for the sit-at-home order.

“I think what we need is constructive engagement with the Federal Government on the release of our brother, Nnamdi Kanu. But using that as an opportunity to paralyse the activities of the South-East, to me, is totally unacceptable henceforth,” he added.
