Lack of sense is your problem. Go and sit at home naaa am I holding you. While your mates are busy doing reasonable things for themselves be sitting at home. Maybe that day doors of opportunity will open for them later you will say they are wicked or they refused to help you. You can call me whatever but it doesn't change the fact that you people that follow such order from one man that is chilling in obodoyinbo are not thinking straight.

In as much as the unity of Nigeria is sacrosanct this order from NPF is abysmal and uncalled for.

Remaining indoors depends on individuals believe
I don't think the police is bothered about them sitting at home but rather their penchant to want to force it on everyone and maybe disrupt those who opened shops.

I will sit at home to commemorate our people massacred here in Asaba by yoruba and hausa army.
In August 1967, three months into the Biafran War, Biafran troops invaded the Midwest Region, to the west of the River Niger. They spread west, taking Benin City and reaching as far as Ore, where they were pushed back by the Nigerian Second Division, under the command of Col. Murtala Muhammed.

The Federal troops gained the upper hand, and forced the Biafrans back to the Niger, where they crossed the bridge back into the Biafran city of Onitsha, which lies directly across from Asaba. The Biafrans blew up the eastern spans of the bridge, so that the Federal troops were unable to pursue them.

Massacre
Edit
The Federal troops entered Asaba around October 5, and began ransacking houses and killing civilians, claiming they were Biafran sympathisers. Reports suggest that several hundred may have been killed individually and in groups at various locations in the town. Leaders summoned the townspeople to assemble on the morning of October 7, hoping to end the violence through a show of support for "One Nigeria." Hundreds of men, women, and children, many wearing the ceremonial akwa ocha (white) attire paraded along the main street, singing, dancing, and chanting "One Nigeria." At a junction, men and teenage boys were separated from women and young children, and gathered in an open square at Ogbe-Osowa village. Federal troops revealed machine guns, and orders were given, reportedly by Second-in-Command, Maj. Ibrahim Taiwo, to open fire. It is estimated that more than 700 men and boys were killed, some as young as 12 years old, in addition to many more killed in the preceding days.

The bodies of some victims were retrieved by family members and buried at home. But most were buried in mass graves, without appropriate ceremony. Many extended families lost dozens of men and boys. Federal troops occupied Asaba for many months, during which time most of the town was destroyed, many women and girls were raped or forcibly "married," and large numbers of citizens fled, often not returning until the war ended in 1970. The total death toll during early October was in excess of 1,000, although the exact numbers will likely never be known.

Suspect
Edit
Ibrahim B. Haruna has sometimes been named as the officer who ordered the massacre, following a report of his testimony to the Nigerian Human Rights Violations Investigations Commission, known as the Oputa Panel.[1] This article quoted him as claiming responsibility (as the commanding officer) and having no apology for the atrocity. However, Haruna was not present in Asaba in 1967. He replaced Murtala Muhammed as C.O. of the Second Division in spring 1968. While there are no eye-witness reports of Muhammed ordering the killings, he was the Commander in the field, and thus must bear responsibility.

In October, 2017, the Asaba community marked the 50th anniversary of the massacres with a two-day commemoration, during which the new, comprehensive book on the massacre, its causes, consequences, and legacy, was launched: "The Asaba Massacre: Trauma, Memory, and the Nigerian Civil War," by S. Elizabeth Bird and Fraser Ottanelli (Cambridge University Press). This book, which draws on interviews with survivors and military and government figures, as well as archival sources, discusses how and why the massacres happened, and the impact of this community trauma, decades after the event.

You dont get it: you have the right not to come out if you dont want to, the warning is for your brothers to allow others that want to do their normal outing on the said date to have their way & not attack them.

I can bet you are Yoruba and I wouldn't be wrong.

How exactly will Ipob force people to sit at home?

Do you know that Ndiigbo have been sitting at home on may 30 for close to a decade now? Starting from MASSOB reign and now IPOB reign.

If anything, it's Nigerians( FG) that put pressure on our governors, who in turn try to force us out from home by threatening to sack market leaders whose markets are closed that day, and threats of revocation of shop licence to shop owners in Igbo markets who don't open shop that day?

Why can't you lots mind your business. Has any Igbo person complained to you that Biafrans forced them to sit at home?
