The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja has confirmed the end of the sit-at-home coordinated by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The sit-at-home had since two years ago frustrated business activities and caused killings and destructions in many parts of the south east since its declaration two years ago.

Recently, the Nnamdi Kanu faction of the IPOB pulled out of the sit-at-home, while the Simon Ekpa faction of the secessionist group continued to push for it.

But Lagbaja while speaking at the opening of the Combined Second and Third Quarters COAS Conference on Tuesday in Abuja said sit-at-home has ended.

“We have equally heightened our efforts in containing criminalities perpetrated in the South East Region by the Indigenous People of Biafra and Eastern Security Network.

“Through Operation Udo Ka, our troops have, in collaboration with other relevant stakeholders, put an end to the infamous sit-at-home order that has almost crippled socio-economic activities in the region,” Lagbaja said.
