Sit-at-Home order imposed by an organization known as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has become a recurring word among about 22 million Southeast dwellers in Nigeria as such there is virtually none movement of persons on specified days. Every Monday since mid 2021 has been marked as a none movement day in the region pending the release of her leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kalu from detention. This study with a sample of 1000 respondents in a survey research design adopted descriptive and Chi-Square techniques to examine the effects of Sit-at Home on economic growth of Southeastern Nigeria. The results which were supported by both descriptive statistics outcome and test of hypothesis revealed that economic growth is negatively affected by the IPOB sit-at-home order. By implication, any order restricting people going about their daily businesses is inimical to economic health of such region. This study recommends that government should come to terms of agreement with the IPOB hierarchy to restore sound business environment for expected level of investment inflow in the Southeast region
