Owerri Residents Observe Sit-At-Home Despite Its Cancellation By IPOB

Residents of Owerri, the Imo State capital, on Monday observed the sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) despite its cancellation by the seccessionist group.

Reports from Owerri indicated that banks, shopping malls, eateries and shops were under lock and keys, while fuel stations and pharmacy shops opened for business but suffered low patronages.

The popular Okigwe-Owerri Road, Imo State University, Owerri Junction, the ever busy government House Road about, bank and major roads were deserted. There was however some skeleton commercial activities at the popular Ama JK junction on Douglas Road.

A few number of people who came out found it difficult to see vehicles they could board to their various destinations, just as business centres at the Ikenegbu area in the state capital were largely shut.

A commercial transport operator, who spoke to reporters said he was going home after the first trip because there were no passengers to commute.

He said: “I am going home. There are no passengers on the road. I am coming from the village to park in my house. I am with Nnamdi Kanu. He should be freed by the Federal Government.”
