To this effect, they will not be open for business on Wednesday and Thursday next week.
This is mainly because, within the period, the groups will carryout sensitization visits to all the places of business and settlement of their members as part of a collaborative effort with the State Government and security agencies towards peace and security in Enugu State.
This was announced at a press briefing jointly addressed by their leaders in Enugu, on Saturday.
