Why South-East Residents Obey Sit-At-Home Order – Asari Dokubo


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Asari Dokubo, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF), has stated that people in the south-east obey the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) because of fear of being killed.

 African Examiner recalls that IPOB had ordered a sit-at-home order every Monday across the entire southeast but had suspended the directive in September 2021.

Even if the exercise has been suspended, there have been incidents of violence in the region reportedly linked to the sit-at-home order.

Also, IPOB has always refuted claims that its members are behind the attacks asking the governors of the states to “deal decisively with” anyone apprehended enforcing the suspended directive.

Speaking on Sunday on a Facebook live, Dokubo accused Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB, of being responsible for the closure of schools and businesses in the south-east.

According to Dokubo, people only obey the order out of fear of being killed, and not due to the love of the IPOB leader.

“IPOB said Igbo people should not go about their business; they should not go to school. So, if we Igbos no longer go about our business and go to school, what else should we be doing? That’s why all the boys are going into fraud,” he said.



“If people sit at home, it is that they are afraid of you people. It is not because you people are powerful. They don’t know you people are nothing.

“People are afraid of being killed, that’s why they’ve continued to sit at home; not because they love Nnamdi Kanu. Why is there no sit-at-home in Port Harcourt, Calabar, Uyo? It is because the government of these places is saying ‘don’t ever come here.

“Very soon, Igbos will come out and say ‘it is okay; our old women are starving; they can’t go to the farm, markets’. At Onitsha market, people are afraid of doing businesses because they are scared of being killed.”

Dokubo also disclosed that he was not involved in the process that led to Kanu’s extradition.

I don’t know where Nnamdi Kanu was living. I don’t know where he took off from. They said I was the person who gave him up,” he said.

“You accused me of betrayal. I am not a member of your organization. We are enemies. What do enemies do? They fight and kill each other until there’s a platform for reconciliation.”
