The Executive Governor of Enugu state, Peter Mbah, has revealed that schools or businesses observing the Monday sit-at-home directive given by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will be closed henceforth.
Mbah stated this during a recent public service announcement.
The statement came after his annulment of Monday sit-at-home in the state, effective from June 6.
The governor urged residents of the state to go about their activities without fear and assured them that “adequate security measures have been taken to guarantee their safety”.
The statement read: “This is to inform all schools, markets, retail outlets, hospitals, transporters, malls and the general members of the public that, in view of the recent ban/cancellation of Mondays’ sit-at-home by the government of Enugu state, in all nooks and crannies of the state, they have been directed to go about their normal businesses and activities every day of the week, including Mondays.
“The above-mentioned bodies and others alike are required to comply with the directive.
“Members of the government’s task force will be moving around to monitor compliance. Any market, transport outlet, or any other body that fails to open for business risks being shut down immediately.”
