Despite the plea by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), urging people of the South East zone to go about their normal duties as it has cancelled the Sit-at-home protest, streets in Anambra State were on Monday deserted..




IPOB had through voice notes on social media stated clearly that it has long called off the exercise, urging all to go about their normal duties.

The Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Mr Emma Powerful had weeks back in a press release stated that its decision to call off the exercise was because of complaints that it was crippling the South East economy.


But Edujandon.com Correspondent who moved round the state observed that banks, schools, markets and other public places were all empty.

The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano had last week assured residents of protection, urging heads of banks in the state and markets to ensure they open for business, to avoid sanction.

Though no incidents of attacks and enforcement of compliance was registered in the state as at the time of filing this report, Awka, Nnewi and Onitsha registered scanty streets, and low turnout of persons.

A source said that the decision by most people to remain at home may be for fear of attack, rather than solidarity to the leader of IPOB, Mr Nnamdi Kanu.
