Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, today led a protest against the continued sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The governor led a protest to some streets in Awka, the state capital, and urged residents to return to their businesses.
At Eke Awka market, Obiano said:
“The state must avoid giving urchins the chance to take over the helm of affairs. I chose to lead from the front to end this fear of molestation, harassment, intimidation.”
Obiano had on Sunday threatened to seal banks and punish market and motor-park leaders who obeyed the sit-at-home order.
However, when the governor saw that the threats won’t change a thing, he took to the streets to speak to his people politely.
