SIT-AT-HOME MADNESS: Brand new Sienna van set ablaze in Anambra (See video)

By Walter Smith, January 10, 2022

The every Monday sit-at-home madness declared in the entire South East by the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, last year to push for the release of their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu seem to have continued this year.

Early this Monday morning at the boundary between Ekwulobia and Oko in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State hoodlums suspected to be members of Eastern Security Network ESN, the militant wing of IPOB were said to have set one brand new Sienna bus ablaze in enforcement of the sit-at-home order.

The unidentified occupants of the van were suspected to be people who left their homes early in their bid to escape the time for the sit-at-home as they made to return to their base after the Christmas and New year festivities.

Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Security Services DSS since his extraordinary rendition from Kenya in June 2021.

Hopes for a political settlement to the Nnamdi Kanu matter which was raised when a group of Igbo leaders led by First Republic Minister Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi met with President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock to plead with the president for a political solution to matter was dashed last week when the president in an exclusive interview granted to Channels Television ruled out any chance of granting the request of the south east leaders.

Saying that Nnamdi Kanu who is billed to appear before Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Federal High Court on the the 18th of January 2022, should have his day in court.

The president had during the visit of the Igbo leaders promised to consider their request  only to renege on his words.

Another vehicle was said to have been equally set ablaze in a distance not too far from the scene where the Sienna bus was burning, however, eye witness said that sympathisers were able to put out the fire.

Our reporter was unable to confirm if there were human casualties as non was met at the site of the burning car.
