Breaking News: Street deserted as Southeast residents observe IPOB’s sit-at-home

Economic activities came to a halt on Thursday in Owerri, Imo State, as residents stayed indoors in compliance with the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

This is coming despite assurances from the police of their safety.

It was learnt that shops, markets, and public and private offices were closed.

Recall that IPOB had ordered residents of the Southeast to sit-at-home to mark Biafra Day.

IPOB had scheduled May 30 as a day to remember those who paid the supreme price during the Biafra civil war.

IPOB had while giving the order cautioned the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, against conducting its examination in the Southeast today, Thursday.

But reports said students sitting for WAEC were seen going to schools in the capital city as early as 7 am on Thursday.
