'It Will Be Devastating', IPOB Reacts To Igbo Leaders' Stand On Secession

The sit-at-home order handed down by the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB} has shut down the Imo State capital, Owerri, as banks, shops and schools were put under lock and key on Monday morning.

Also, markets and malls were shut just as both commercial and private vehicles were off the road.

It would be recalled that IPOB, in a statement by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, had announced that human and vehicular movement would be restricted across the South-East on Monday to mark the 54th anniversary of Biafra.

According to him, all markets, parks, schools, airports and others would be shut down.

However, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, and the police asked the people to ignore the separatist group’s sit-at-home order.

There is yet to be any official reaction from the state government or the Imo State Police Command on the latest development.
