On Monday, people in Enugu State ignored the governor’s directive for everyone to stay indoors.
Thousands of locals came out to defy the Monday stay-in-your-home directive.
Banners reading “Enough is Enough” were carried by demonstrators as they marched through the streets.
A group calling themselves the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been enforcing a sit-at-home policy on the Southeast for the past two years.
IPOB launched the stay-at-home campaign initially to demand Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom.
However, the effort was taken over by Simon Ekpa, who is accused of arming criminals to generate chaos in the area under the name of maintaining law and order.
As a result of people staying home on Mondays and other days when the order is issued, the local economy has suffered.
Ekpa has lately mandated that everyone in the Southeast remain indoors for a whole week.
The government of Enugu State threatened sanctions on Sunday against individuals, organisations, and organisations that participate in the sit-in.
