Despite the ban on all social activities, including weddings, traditional marriages, burials, clubbing and others, some communities in Anambra state still hold such gatherings.

Press gathered that the flaunting of the order in the communities has angered Governor Willie Obiano who has vowed to deal with the leaders of the community if they failed to cause their subjects to heed his order.

A memo which was sent to all the president-general of the communities in Anambra, which was obtained by Press’s reporter showed that the governor expressed dismay on the actions of the people in the affected communities.

The Memo was signed on behalf of Commissioner, Ministry of Local Government Chieftaincy and Affairs, by Greg Obi by Henry Nwasike, the PRO of the ministry.
