Nnamdi Kanu: Imo Shuts Down As IPOB Enforces Sit-At-Home Order


IPOB had last week issued the order in protest over the continued detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, by the Department of State Services.

State police command, in a statement, reacted to the order by directing members of the public to ignore the order and to go about their businesses with an assurance that adequate measures had been put in place to protect lives and properties.

However, IPOB’s order seemed to outweigh the police directive as usual daily activities in the town disappeared as early as 6am as markets, shops, banks, fast food centres, popular eatery joints/relaxation, mobile food vendors and artisans remained indoors and shut.

While the Owerri/Orlu road, Wetheral, Tetlow, Okigwe, Port-Harcourt and Onitsha roads were deserted, the remnant portions of the popular Owerri main market also known as Eke Ukwu Owerre, relief market, New market and World Bank markets wore the ugly toga of a conquered enclave.
