Streets, markets deserted as Anambra residents sustain IPOB’s sit-at-home directive

The order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) asking residents of the southeast to stay at home every Monday in solidarity with its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has recorded another success in Anambra State.

Though the group had earlier suspended the order after the first Monday registered total compliance in the zone.

Two Mondays after the suspension of the exercise, BBNAIJA ONLINE” can report that the exercise again grounded commercial activities in Anambra.

Our correspondent, who moved round the capital, Awka, reports that markets, motor parks and streets are all deserted as people remained at home.

The spokesperson of IPOB, Mr Emma Powerful, while announcing the suspension of the exercise over a week ago, said the exercise would only be activated on days when its incarcerated leader would be going to court.

During a ride around Awka, BBNAIJA ONLINE” discovered that only very few vehicles were on the road, while public places were deserted.

At Eke Awka, though the market gate was wide open, only few persons were seen in the market, while most of the shops remained closed.
