The sit-at-home protest, which had initially been endorsed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is no longer being adhered to within Aba.
In a widely circulated video, this group expressed their grievances and accused the city's residents of not adhering to the previously enforced sit-at-home order held every Monday."
“On Monday, the coming week, the angels of Chukwu okike will be passing in Aba. They said they have been receiving tons of messages coming from the good people of Aba that Aba does not observe the sit at home. How can the great mighty fall? How can the great Iroko fall? How can the Enyimba fall? In the whole of Igbo land, when the people of Aba come out, the whole of Igbo land will shake.
“But today, the people of Aba are turning to become like women. It looks like there are no men in Aba anymore. But starting from Monday, there will be evangelism outreach in Aba. And when this evangelism is going on, there are people that will give their lives to Christ as a burnt offering and there are people who will be delivered from their demonic spirits. And there are people who will receive miracles and there are people who will be made to see signs and wonders.”
