By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Umuahia, the Abia State capital, is like a ghost town as residents remained indoors in compliance with the sit-at-home order dished out by the leadership of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, to mark this year’s Biafra Day.
Compared to previous years, when the exercise recorded partial compliance in Umuahia, the birthplace of IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the capital city was completely empty, as all markets and major streets were deserted.
IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had in his early morning live broadcast on Facebook and other social media platforms expressed rage over the non-compliance attitude of Umuahia, Enugu and Abakaliki to similar orders in the past, warning them to ensure total compliance to the sit-at-home order this year. Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu had Sunday night said Abia traders would not be compelled to open their shops today if they chose not to do so.
