FG Deploys More Troops to South Eastern Nigeria. In response to a two-week sit-at-home order issued by Mazi Simon Ekpa, an alleged leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) residing in Finland, the Federal Government of Nigeria has taken proactive measures to ensure the safety and security of its citizens in the South East region. These measures include the deployment of additional troops to maintain order and protect the populace during the period of the sit-at-home order, which is set to commence on the 31st of this month.
As part of the government’s response, military cantonments throughout the South East have initiated comprehensive security postings across the five states in the region. These postings entail heightened security measures and patrols aimed at safeguarding the population and maintaining peace and stability in the area.
The decision to deploy additional troops comes in the wake of growing concerns expressed by various stakeholders, including the Governor of Enugu State and other South East Governors. These leaders have publicly denounced the sit-at-home order, citing apprehensions about its potential impact on the safety and well-being of the Igbo people and the regional economy.
The sit-at-home order issued by Mazi Simon Ekpa has garnered attention and raised questions about its potential implications for the South East region. The deployment of additional troops signals the government’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of its citizens during this period of heightened tension and uncertainty.
