More than 5,000 youths in Enugu State, on Saturday, marched around the main street in the state capital in support of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, who declared an end to sit-at-home protests across the South East.
The youths came out in large numbers and carried placards that read, among other things, “We support Nnamdi Kanu’s order to end sit-at-home,” “Sit-at-home endangers our future,” “Sit-at-home promotes fear,” “Many have been killed because of sit-at-home,” “No more sit-at-home,” “Sit-at-home is destroying South East economy,” and “Sit-at-home affects our mental health.”

They pleaded with South East citizens to disregard Simon Ekpa’s directives, pointing out that doing so has resulted in severe economic and humanitarian losses for the region.
While urging the Federal Government to grant the detained IPOB leader, Kanu, an immediate release, the youths emphasised that those calling for a sit-at-home in the South East were only interested in their own self-interests and weren’t fighting for Kanu’s freedom.
