IPOB Sit-At-Home: Total Failure In Ebonyi

The sit-at-home exercise called by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, failed in Ebonyi state

The group called for the sit-at-home to commemorate and protest the invasion of the country home of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, exactly one year on Friday.

Since that invasion by the Military during the Operation Python Dance 2, Mr Kanu and his parents have not been seen.

The new Commissioner of Police, CP Musa Kimo had urged residents to go about their normal business. He also held series of meetings with business owners where he assured them of adequate security.

It was business as usual in the state capital Abakaliki, on Friday as residents went about their normal daily business activities.

Shops, motor parks, banks and other major businesses remained open in the city from 8 am in disobedience of the order by the pro- biafran group.

The Abakpa main market in the city, the mechanic village and other markets in the city were open as traders began making brisk business.

However, Transporters had no buses going to Onitsha or Aba in Anambra and Abia states respectively.

Joint security patrol teams patrolled the streets of the city with some others on standby at strategic points in the city.

A resident, who spoke to our reporter, Geoffrey Igboke said he did not observe the exercise because he did not see the need for it.
