Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has threatened to seize any shop locked by its owner as a result of the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Umahi urged residents of the state to ignore the sit-at-home order by the proscribed group and go about their lawful businesses.
The governor issued the warning during a live broadcast to mark his six years in office at Executive Chamber of the Old Government House, Abakaliki on Saturday.
He added that the directive emanating from IPOB was “an act of foolishness.”
He warned that any trader that refused to open his or her store on Monday would forfeit it.
He insisted that nobody could stop both vehicular and human movement in Ebonyi State.
