Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Aderemi Adeoye has visited the commercial city of Onitsha to assess the security deployment following the formal end of the Monday sit at home there.

Onitsha has been observing the sit at home since it was declared by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, some years ago, despite efforts of the state government to prevail on the people to go about their normal businesses.

During the CPs visit, he drove round the city and interacted with shuttle bus drivers plying Upper Iweka area to assess the return of the commercial activities in the area.

The CP said he was pleased to announce the lifting of curfew in Nnewi, Onitsha, and Ogbaru by the state government, which was imposed during the security challenges in the three areas, and urged them to be law-abiding and vigilant.

He also urged them to promptly report acts of crime to the nearest police station and gave them telephone numbers to call for police response if the need arose.

“Your return to your businesses on Mondays shows an act of patriotism to the nation and in return, we assure that your safety is our responsibility,” he told them.

However, many markets in the city were yet to respond to the end of the sit at home and it would take another Monday to know if everybody in the city had embraced the call to finally end the sit at home.
