The sit-at-home day being observed in various states in the Southeast is officially over, according to Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja.
This was said by Lagbaja on Tuesday in Abuja at the start of the combined second and third-quarter COAS Conference.
“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.”
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had established a sit-at-home day on Mondays two years before to the release of their leader Nnamdi Kanu from the Department of State Services’ detention.
