Following the Sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), the Archbishop of Methodist Church, Umuahia, Most Reverend Chibuzo Opoko, said he prefers sit at home to violence or any form of terrorism.
In a press briefing in Umuahia, the Cleric stated that if a group of people decided to ventilate their displeasure with the government of the day through a sit at home order, it is totally welcome by him, stating that after all during the outbreak of Covid 19 pandemic, people were asked to sit at home for months.
“As a matter of fact, I prefer sit at home to violence”.
The Archbishop said that government at all levels have failed Nigerians, which he said has given rise to injustice, discordant tunes of wars, corruption, hardship among others.
He said the government should as a matter of urgency address injustice in Nigeria, as people are bound to be restless if there is no justice.
Archbishop Opoko further stated that gradually the population of Nigeria is decreasing with the incessant killings going on in the country, saying that very soon Nigeria will no longer be 200 Million.
However, the cleric urged every Nigeria, especially women to go on their kneels and pray to God to heal Nigeria, as God hears the prayers of women faster.
Recall that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) had declared that sit-at-home must be observed in the Southeast every Monday in solidarity with its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
The order was observed last week Monday, leading to the death of some residents of the region as security operatives clashed with hoodlums.
Even though there was a counter order for the sit-at-home to be suspended, residents still observed it, leaving business activities in a low key.
