The Enugu State Government has urged residents to disregard the Monday sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and go about their normal businesses.
The government threatened to sanction civil servants, schools, and markets that observe the illegal order.
The directive was issued by the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Chidiebere Onyia, and was contained in a statement he signed, NAN reports.
He said, “The Enugu State Government wishes to remind the good people and residents of the state that the ban on the illegal Monday sit-at-home order remains effective.
“In view of this, civil servants, schools, markets, financial institutions, business premises, and others, are hereby directed to resume normal activities on Monday.”
The SSG urged the state government to restate its resolve to apply sanctions against defaulters of its cancellation of the illegal order.
“Markets that fail to open to customers on Monday shall be shut down indefinitely and shops in the markets that close on Monday shall be sealed and re-allocated to those eager to do business in the state.”
