No more sit-at-home in south-east– COAS




In a bid to ensure peaceful coexistence in the nation’s territories, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja has declared that the sit-at-home being observed in some states in the South East is now over.

The sit-at-home order is being enforced by a faction of the secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, across some South-Eastern states.

Lagbaja stated this at the opening of the Combined Second and Third Quarters COAS Conference on Tuesday in Abuja.

“We have equally heightened our efforts in containing criminalities perpetrated in the South East Region by the Indigenous People of Biafra and Eastern Security Network.

“Through Operation Udo Ka, our troops have, in collaboration with other relevant stakeholders, put an end to the infamous sit-at-home order that has almost crippled socio-economic activities in the region,” he said.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had two years ago declared every Monday a sit-at-home day until its leader Nnamdi Kanu was released from the custody of the Department of State Services.
