The Imo State police has warned residents not to adhere to the sit-at-home directive from the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

Aboki Danjuma, Imo commissioner of police, told residents of the state to go about their legitimate businesses on Monday.

IPOB has been enforcing the sit-at-home in certain south-east states for years now, to protest the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, its leader.

Kanu is being prosecuted by the federal government for alleged treasonable felony, incitement and insurrection, among others.

Danjuma spoke on Monday while addressing officers of the command during a confidence building patrol.

He said the command has put necessary machinery in place to checkmate the activities of the separatist group.

Danjuma added that the “illegal activities of IPOB” have negatively impacted the economy of the state and that of the south-east.

“This is a confidence building patrol and operation show of force exercise across the length and breadth of the state,” he said.

“This continuous operation is targeted at preventing crime and putting an end to the deleterious and illegal sit-at-home order by the proscribed IPOB/ESN which has grievously affected the economy of the state and south-east region.

“We have put all machinery in place to forestall any further incidence of killings and destruction of lives and properties in the state, especially on the IPOB-instituted sit-at-home on Mondays.

“You can now go about your various legitimate businesses on Mondays without any fear of molestation. There is no more Monday sit-at-home in Imo state.”
