The Anambra State Government has threatened to not pay August wage to any employee who abstains from work on Monday in obedience to the sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
This is contained in a public announcement by the Head of Service, Barry Harry Uduh on Sunday.
IPOB had on July 30 ordered sit-at-home within the South-East each Monday, till Nnamdi Kanu, its chief, is launched from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
The proscribed group mentioned the lockdown tagged ‘Ghost Monday’ can even have an effect on faculties and marketplaces.
It threatened to close down financial actions within the area, including that violators of the order could be visited with violence.
Reacting to the order, the state Head of Service, Uduh mentioned, “The Government of Anambra State has directed that all workers in the State must attend to their duties on Monday, 9th August 2021 as failure to do so will result in severe sanctions, including loss of salary for the month of August.
“All Hon. Commissioners and Permanent Secretaries are to monitor and report compliance, please. Kindly give this information the widest publicity in your Establishment.”
