IPOB’s sit-at-home order registers total compliance in Anambra


The sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday registered total compliance in cities across Anambra State.

Markets, banks, motor parks and other commercial places, including schools and government offices, were under lock and key.

Streets around Awka, the state capital, were totally deserted between 7:30 am and 10am when a Nubunk reporter moved around the city to monitor the compliance level.

Contrary to information by the leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu that men of the security arm of the group, ESN would be unleashed on the streets to enforce compliance to the order, some motorists attending to emergencies were seen driving along the road without molestation.

Nubunk however reports that there was heavy deployment of a combined team of security personnel who moved round the town to ensure that no one was molested.

The Anambra State Police Command had on Sunday assured that it would ensure that those who were willing to come out to carry out their businesses would not be molested by any person or group of persons.

Major markets in the state, including Onitsha main market, Eke Awka market and Nkwo Nnewi market, were all shut down as at the time of filing this report.

Meanwhile, no incident of violence has so far been registered in the state as a result of the exercise.
