Sit-at-home Order by Indigenous People of Biafra Paralyses Business Activities in Some Eastern States

The sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra to protest the detention of her leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal Government recorded total compliance in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia State on Monday.

Commercial Banks, private schools, markets, and motor parks did not open for business.

In Umuahia, the state capital, the order recorded a high level of compliance as many shop owners did not open for business.

In Onitsha, Anambra state business and commercial activities were completely grounded while schools, public institutions, markets, and street shops were under lock and key.

Major roads and streets were deserted, including the ever-busy Niger Bridge, Onitsha/Enugu expressway to Upper Iweke through Army barracks, Ziks roundabout to Nkpor, and old Ogbunike toll gate were turned into ghosts areas.

No human and vehicular movements were sighted at both ends of Onitsha and Asaba, the Delta State capital as the two pedestrian cross of the bridge was completely deserted.

Some persons on masks with assorted weapons were sighted beating, maiming, and destroying valuables of those who defied the order.

Two persons were reportedly killed in Nnewi, Anambra State on Monday amidst near-total compliance with the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Three buses were reportedly set ablaze in the industrial city of the state while a Toyota Camry vehicle was seen abandoned along the street with the driver said to have fled.
