Shehu Sani, a former Nigerian lawmaker and social critic, has sent a message to the South East zone.
He urged the residents of the South East zone to resist and disobey the sit-at-home order by Simon Ekpa’s faction of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.
Senator Sani’s statement is contained in a post via his verified Twitter handle on Thursday.
Recall that the outlawed separatist group had threatened to issue a sit-at-home order in the South East during the general elections.
However, the former lawmaker has insisted that the sit-at-home order has a negative and retrogressive action against the democratic rights of the people in the South Eastern part of the country.
He wrote, “The sit-at-home order imposed on the South Eastern part of Nigeria by the separatist IPOB is a negative and retrogressive action against the democratic rights of the people in that region.
"It should be resisted and disobeyed.”
