Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has announced an end to the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, held every Monday.
This is as he revealed that there will soon be a Peace and Reconciliation Committee that will look into addressing all areas of sincere challenge, including interfacing with the Federal Government on behalf of all Prisoners of conscience.
The sit-at-home order was announced by IPOB last year to protest the continued detention of its leader Nnamdi Kanu who is being held by the Department of State Services, DSS, for terrorism and treasonable felony.
Posting on Facebook after a church service on Monday, Soludo revealed that the decision to announce an end to the sit-at-home order had been endorsed by Christian leaders in Anambra.
He wrote, “We have prayed to God, admonished our people and made commitment to ensuring that everyone concerned gets expeditious justice.
“Following the unanimous agreement of our leaders across board, and the endorsement of the entire body of Christ, I am pleased to inform our people that today, Monday April 4, 2022 marks the official end to the “Monday sit-at-home” in Anambra State.
“Shortly, I will be announcing the membership of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee that will look into addressing all areas of sincere challenge, including interfacing with the Federal Government on behalf of all Prisoners of conscience. I have also offered Amnesty to all our brothers in the various forests around us. Give us your guns, and trust us to help you forge a meaningful living.
“The task of taking back our dear State and reclaiming the dignity of our collective existence is at the heart of our drive towards a Liveable and Prosperous Homeland. This task is a MUST. I call for your support and prayers, as we have resolved to fiercely go after criminal elements who are out to threaten our peace and distort our development.
“Anambra is the Light of the Nation, we must keep it so.”
