The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has said that only the release of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, can lead to the end of Monday’s sit-at-home directive.
Mbaka stated this during the Good Friday all-night programme, where he lamented the negative impact of the exercise, especially on businessmen and women.
He said: “We can not deny the fact that this sit-at-home is costing millions of money, especially to business people; but we cannot also pretend not to know the solution.
“They should release our brother, Nnamdi Kanu. If he is released today, the sit-at-home will stop today. You can’t stop it by force; politicians tried it, but it was in vain. They sit at home with their families every Monday, and if they want to go out they move with more than 20 trucks of security men.
“Anambra State government, which tried to use force to stop it, is feeling the heat today. So, let them release our brother, Nnamdi Kanu, and sit-at-home will stop”, he said.
On ESN, he said, “Since the past three years, this year is the year Enugu farmers could farm successfully. May God bless our young men who cleared our farms from herdsmen”.
