Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has come out to warn that traders who comply with Monday’s sit-at-home order should be prepared to forfeit their shops.

He recently revealed this in a state-wide broadcast on Saturday in Abakaliki to mark the sixth anniversary of his administration.

According to him, all markets in the state should open for business on Monday or be ready to face the consequences.

Umahi added that he doesn’t support the order by the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) to the people of South-East zone, and he needs residents of his state to ignore such call.

His words, “There should be free movement of people in the state on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and other days of the year.”

“People should go to church on Sunday to pray for the nation’s fallen security agents, civilians and peace and unity of the state and country.”

“I challenge the youths, local government area chairmen, security agents, Ebebeagu security outfit, among others, to ensure that no one is molested in the state.”

“Anyone who has nothing to protect himself should do so with cutlass, which should be for protection and not for attack.”

“I have been notified about such processions and they are being used to profile our people for empowerment.”

“I charge the Ebubeagu security outfit, which is backed by the state laws, to ensure that the people are protected.”

“There will be movement in other parts of the country, if there is none in the South-East so people should therefore ignore such order.”

“Ebonyi people are grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari for all his assistance and if people do not see his goodness, he has been good to us.”
