The Imo state government has told the people of Imo State to disregard a sit-at-home order given the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on May 29 and May 30 for the people of Biafra to stay at home
Commissioner for Information and Strategy for Imo State, Declan Emelumba, spoke in Owerri, where he made it clear that people of the state can go on with their lawful businesses without fear of molestation.
In his words: “Imo residents should disregard these messages as they have no consequence whatsoever. They should go about their normal businesses without any fear of molestation.
Let our people be rest assured that the government has put all necessary security measures in place to ensure the safety and freedom of movement of all Imo people on these dates and after”
“Just when the government has successfully brought the state back to normalcy, these vicious enemies have contrived another rumour to the effect that security agents have been instructed to shoot and kill Imo youths extra judicially.
I am here to urge my dear Imo youths to ignore this baseless rumour of them being targets of intimidation or assault security agents, as the originators of this rumour are those who have vowed to make Imo ungovernable.
I am, therefore, using this medium to appeal to our parents and guardians to rein in their children and wards against any form of demonstration in this volatile time.
Those who are stoking the embers of this crisis will not put forward their children to be part of the battle. That is why my fellow parents should not allow their children to be Cannon fodder in a purely mindless matter.
Once again, the government has not given any order for either the arrest or killing of innocent Imo youths. So, law-abiding citizens should go about their legitimate businesses without any fear or panic,”
