PEOPLE of South East Geopolitical Zone have been urged to go for a solemn observation of May 30 in honour of their fallen heroes rather than sit-at-home.

  A chieftain of Ohaneze Ndigbo and former presidential aspirant on All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, Charles Udeogaranya, made the call while addressing newsmen.

  According to him, Igbo heroes should be better honoured in solemn prayers and charity without rebellious declarations like sit-at-home.

  Reminding ndigbo that as the national holiday for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in the United States of America is considered a day on and not a day off, Igbo heroes not only deserve same but he also maintained that the fallen heroes of ndigbo will be happier wherever they are with an Igbo society without violence.

  According to the groups, the exercise should be observed in all states of the South East and South South Zones as well as Abuja, Lagos and northern towns.

  “The sit-at-home order is also to be observed in all the markets within and outside Igbo land where our people do their businesses. It shall also be observed by Diaspora Igbo in over 100 countries where the IPOB family is present.
