How South-East responded to IPOB’s sit-at-home order

The Thursday, May 30, sit -at -home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) recorded different compliance levels in different areas in South East part of the country.
While there was partial compliance in some areas, there were also places business and other activities went on as usual, regardless of the order.
In cities like Nnewi, Onitsha and Ekwulobia in Anambra State; Ariaria Market in Aba, Abia State the order recorded full compliance.
Markets, banks and schools in most of these places were closed as directed by the proscribed IPOB group.
But in Akwa, Anambra State capital and some other capital cities of South East states, the order recorded poor compliance.
In Akwa for instances, skeletal services were seen going on. People went on with their activities without any problems including at the markets.
Although banks did not open for businesses in the city, their staff nonetheless were seen inside the bank premises chatting and celebrating a form of work- free day for them.

Meanwhile in Enugu, the capital of Enugu State and in Owerri, Imo State capital, business and other activities went on like every other day.
IPOB had directed the people of old eastern states to observe a sit-at-home order in memory of those who lost their lives in the Nigeria-Biafra war from 1967 to 1970.
