Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo has offered amnesty to members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, popularly regarded as IPOB, with a view to laying down their arms to forge meaningful lives.
Mr Soludo made this known via his official Facebook page on Monday, following the unanimous agreement to end Monday Sit-at-home.
He said: “I am pleased to inform our people that today, Monday, April 4, 2022 marks the official end to the “Monday sit-at-home” in Anambra State.
“Shortly, I will be announcing the membership of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee that will look into addressing all areas of sincere challenge, including interfacing with the Federal Government on behalf of all prisoners of conscience.
I have also offered Amnesty to all our brothers in the various forests around us. Give us your guns, and trust us to help you forge a meaningful living,” he said.
“We have prayed to God, admonished our people and made commitment to ensuring that everyone concerned gets expeditious justice.
The task of taking back our dear State and reclaiming the dignity of our collective existence is at the heart of our drive towards a Liveable and Prosperous Homeland,” Soludo added.
“This task is a MUST. I call for your support and prayers, as we have resolved to fiercely go after criminal elements who are out to threaten our peace and distort our development,” the Governor said.
