In response to the upcoming sit-at-home order declared by the pro-Biafra agitator and terrorist Simon Ekpa, the Chief of Army Staff, Major General Taoreed Lagbaja, has issued a directive for troops to take control of the areas where the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) enforce their order in the South-East states. The order comes as a proactive measure to maintain peace and security in the region.
Simon Ekpa, who is based in Finland, recently announced a two-week sit-at-home protest scheduled to begin on July 31 in the Southeast region. The announcement has raised concerns about potential disruptions and disturbances in the affected areas.
The decision by the Chief of Army Staff to deploy troops aims to ensure the safety of citizens and prevent any potential breakdown of law and order. The military presence will serve as a deterrent and provide security measures to counter any potential threats that may arise during the sit-at-home period. The objective is to maintain stability and protect the well-being of the people residing in the southeast states.
