Sit-at-home: Police vow to deal with pro-Biafran groups

The police described the agitators as troublemakers and enemies of public peace.

The police command in Enugu says it will “vehemently resist” any pro-Biafran groups or individuals that prevent residents from going about their daily activities amid the stay-at-home order.

The police described the agitators as troublemakers and enemies of public peace.

The command also reiterated its resolve to collaborate with security agencies and peace-loving citizens to adequately provide public security and safety, enforce and maintain law and order in the state.

This is contained in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman Daniel Ndukwe on Monday.

“The command, therefore, enjoins peace-loving citizens of the state to go about their lawful businesses. Residents should disregard sit-at-home orders not issued or approved by any statutorily recognised organ or authorised ministry, department, or agency of government,” said the statement.

It added that “this includes one purportedly” restricting public movements and businesses on Monday (today) by pro-Biafran groups.

“Accordingly, any individual or group(s), who may want to hide under the guise of such illegitimate order to foment trouble in the state have been warned to desist forthwith,” the police statement further warned. “As anything in the contrary will be vehemently resisted and handled in accordance with the law.”
