Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Very Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, said that only the release of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, could lead to the end of Monday’s sit-at-home order in the South East.
Fr Mbaka said 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 cannot deny the fact that this sit-at-home order is costing millions of money, especially to business people, but we cannot also pretend not to know the solution.
“They should release our brother, Mazi 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 Government that tried to use force to stop it is feeling the heat today. So, let them release our brother Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and sit-at-home will stop.”
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.”
Mbaka said; “One of our priest’s large farms were messed up by herdsmen last year, he was crying, but this year, he is smiling. May God bless our youths who made it possible for our people to farm again.”
