Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the Anambra State Governor, on Saturday, urged the people of the state to observe a one-day prayer session against the activities of the gunmen terrorising the state and the South-East region.
The governor said the prayer session would hold on Monday, April 4, 2022 in churches and other religious worship centres across the state.
He said the move became necessary so as to counter the “evil” effect of the Monday sit-at-home order.
He spoke at a stakeholders’ peace meeting with security chiefs, traditional rulers and religious leaders, in Awka.
He said, “I enjoin you to pause and join in fellowship as we seek the face of God.It is expected that the conclusion of the prayer session shall mark the end of Sit At Home in Anambra State.”
Meanwhile, the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra has scrapped its Mondays’ sit-at-home directive in the South-East region, saying the development is to embrace peaceful negotiations organised by the Anambra State Government.
