The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr Osita Okechukwu, has counselled the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra against threatening a lockdown in the South-East Zone every Monday.
Okechukwu gave the advice in a statement on Sunday in Enugu.
IPOB, in a statement on Friday through its Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, had stated that the Monday lockdown was to be tagged: “Ghost Monday.”
The statement said that “Ghost Monday,” which would affect all economic activities including schools and marketplaces, would continue every Monday until its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is released.
Okechukwu, however, urged the South East Zone to consider the immense infrastructural development being undertaken by the Muhammadu Buhari administration in the zone.
“Let me for the umpteenth time appeal to my brothers in IPOB to sheath their sword, for to lockdown the South-East is simply waging atrocious war against Ndigbo.” (NAN)
