Recall that there have been a series of sit-at-home orders going on in the South East, most especially on Mondays, which have affected businesses and other activities.

Verified news outlets have reported mayhem melted at those who violated or failed to comply with the “sit-at-home” order, which is widely believed to have been issued by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Joe Igbokwe, reacting to these developments on his official Facebook page, expressed concern about the current happenings in the Southeast.

He claimed that the recent occurrences in the southeast will end up preventing Igbos living outside of Igboland from coming back during the festive season, which will in turn affect the economy in the region during those periods.

Igbokwe said, “Igbos like me who live and work outside of Igboland return home every Christmas, Easter, and New Yam Festival to inject billions of naira into the SE economy. Not any longer.”
