Governor Charles Soludo has vowed that Anambra State will not obey directives from non-state actors on any illegal sit-at-home order.
The state government has directed that, henceforth, residents should ignore the sit-at-home order by unauthorised individuals or groups in the state.
The directive was contained in a statement issued on Thursday in Awka by Mr Christian Aburime, Press Secretary to Gov Soludo.
According to the statement, the decision was necessitated by a recent order to sit at home given by Simon Ekpa.
The release, which described the order as illegal, urged residents of the state not to comply with such directives from non-state actors or blame themselves for such compliance.
According to the statement: “Such directives should be completely ignored by the citizens of Anambra and, by extension, the entire South East.
“As for the imposition of sit-at-home orders by unauthorised individuals or groups, this is a clear violation of the law.
“Anambra State will never observe any sit-at-home order. Our markets, schools, businesses, and other social activities will remain open.
“Anambra State will never be a breeding ground for anarchy, fear, or lawlessness.”
