Following the directive given by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to residents, to boycott business activities tomorrow Tuesday 18th January, 2022, as its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, appears at the Federal High Court in Abuja, the Ebonyi State Government has warned that residents of the state who comply with the sit-at-home order by IPOB, on Tuesday will be severely punished.
The state’s Commissioner for Markets and Parks, Nwachukwu Eze, vowed to mete out severe punishment to those who fail to open for business in Ebonyi state.
He urged leaders of markets to ensure shops, stall and business centres are opened and active for commercial purposes.
“All markets and parks leaderships in Ebonyi are by this announcement directed to ensure that markets are open for businesses on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
“The state is not in any way part of the sit-at-home order by IPOB. Please note that strict compliance to this directive is very important as failure to do so will attract severe punishment.”
