Imo grounded as IPOB’s sit-at-home order continues

By Ogundele Olanrewaju

Owerri, the Imo State capital, was grounded on Monday despite the cancellation of the weekly sit-at-home order by Indigenous People of Biafra.

It was observed that the city was a shadow of itself.

Banks, hotels, markets, schools, supermarkets, and malls were under lock and key.

Even state and federal government employees were absent from workplaces even as streets stalls were locked.

The development was a sequel to the last Monday’s stampede in Owerri, following the speculation that some hoodlums were enforcing a sit-at-home order in the state.

As of 2pm, the government roundabout was deserted, even as youths were seen on major roads playing football.

Parents refused to take their children to school following the pandemonium which took place last Monday.
