The Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Danmallam, has called on banks, other financial institutions and residents of Enugu to ignore the Sit-at-home request made by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The police boss called on the people of Enugu State to go about their lawful duties and businesses without fear of intimidation.
Last week, the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB and other pro-separatist groups have called for a Sit-at-home across Nigeria to honour the fallen heroes and show support over the arrest and detention of protesting women in Owerri and the alleged discovery of mass graves after the military exercise of Python Dance 11 in several South East cities.
However the Enugu State police Commissioner, speaking at a side meeting in a banking forum, assured residents and banks in the state of his command’s resolve in partnership with other sister security agencies and relevant stakeholders to continue to ensure a safe and secured state, pointing out that the negative move was the handiwork of mischief makers.
According to him, “there was nothing to worry about before, during and after Sept. 14 concerning the alleged proposed sit-at-home being contemplated by some unpatriotic members of the public masquarading themselves as pro-Biafra groups.
“Security operatives of the command in partnership with other sister security agencies have put modalities in place towards fishing out those in this habit.
“I assure you that there is no cause for alarm as people are enjoined to go about their normal lawful businesses before, during and after the said date,” he said.
