Some Traders in Ogidi, Anambra state, Southeast Nigeria, have burnt to death one of the enforcers of the sit-at-home exercise— a protest against the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to SaharaReporters the incident occurred on Monday, when one of the enforcers allegedly went into the market to order business owners to observe the order.
Sadly for him, the traders of building materials had made up their mind to end the enforced sit-at-home which the initiator, the leadership of the IPOB had cancelled and continuously denounced.
The separatist group had also directed the government and security agencies to treat anyone enforcing it as a criminal.
However, the self-proclaimed disciple of Kanu, Simon Ekpa has insisted that sit-at-home must be observed every Monday in the Southeast region, insisting that until the detained IPOB leader was released from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), it would not end.
In the viral clip the young man is seen struggling with the fire and later stood up and started running before being stopped by the mob.
The alleged sit-at-home enforcer was knocked down and a tyre was put on him. Thereafter, they doused him with some inflammable substance believed to be fuel.
