MASSOB asked residents of the South East to stay at home on Saturday.

The Abia State Government on Thursday advised residents to disregard the seat at home order given by the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

This is contained in a statement issued by Ugochukwu Emezue, the Chief Press Secretary to the Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji.

The Police in Abia also issued a similar advice asking residents to jettison the MASSOB statement.

MASSOB in a statement advised residents of the South East geo-political zone to observe a seat at home order on June 8.

The Abia State Police Command, in a statement signed by Geoffrey Ogbonna, the Police Public Relations Officer, issued its advice on Thursday. It advised residents to go about their normal duties, assuring that the police would ensure adequate security of lives and property.

It warned members of the MASSOB in the area against any act that would jeopardise public interest and stated that security agents had been placed on alert to maintain law and order.
