“Sit-at-home enforcers have killed over 250 people” – Ohanaeze alleges

During the two weeks of civil disobedience in the southeast, the Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, claims that over 250 persons have been killed since 2021 while the sit-at-home order has been enforced.

On Tuesday, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, President General of the largest Igbo organisation, disclosed this while speaking about the impact of the action on South-East people.

Iwuanyanwu stated that the “illegal order” has caused the Igbos immense hardships as well as the loss of lives and property.

“The South East is known for micro, small and medium-scale enterprises, indigenous manufacturing, fabrication and agro-allied industries. To this end, several authorities have put the losses encountered by the people at trillions of naira on each sit-at-home day.

“The region has witnessed the loss of clients and customers, who have found alternatives because of the unstable business environment. The food transporters to the South East now charge more. More so, insecurity and the menace of unknown gunmen have worsened,” he said.

He added, “Worst still, over 250 people are estimated to have been killed through the enforcement of these orders.”

A popular seperatist, Simon Ekpa had declared two weeks civil disobedience in the southeast from July 31st to August 14 2023, calling for the release of the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
