Peter Obi calls sit-at-home a criminal activity in South East

THE presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, Peter Obi, has described the sit-at-home by a faction of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), as a criminal venture.

In a series of tweets he condemned the “mindless bloodletting particularly in the North Central geopolitical zone,” and the worrisome  disruption of business and social activities in the South East.

He described as “disturbing,” the sit-at-home directive purported issued by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, (IPOB), when the group has denied issuing such directive.

He stated: “What is going on in the South East therefore is essentially a criminal activity that must be nipped in the bud, with all hands being on deck, security agencies, and the people alike.

“We as a people through our various governments should up our value for human lives in the way and manner we respond to issues that touch lives.”

He urged critical stakeholders, governors, traditional rulers, religious and political leaders to continue to sue for peace among the people and said there is a need for a more intelligence-driven step in “reducing the suffering of innocent people.”

S’East leaders meet on security
