Sit-at-home: IPOB Shuts Down Onitsha (Photo)

The ever-busy city of Onitsha, the commercial town of Anambra State, is a shadow of itself today, Thursday, May 30, 2019, NairaNaijaNews can authoritatively report.

Our correspondent observed that the streets and markets are deserted as the famed commercial town shuts down following the Sit-at-Home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to honour the Biafra dead.

NairaNaijaNews recalls that security agencies had vowed to abort the event scheduled to hold across the five South-East states and other Igbo-speaking parts of Nigeria.

NairaNaijaNews is still monitoring the situation in other parts of Anambra, as well as in Abia, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi and Imo states.
