Biafra Day: S/East cities deserted as residents observe sit-at-home [Photos]

Major cities in south-east Nigeria turned to ghost towns as residents observed the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to mark this year’s Biafra Day.

This comes amid threats from several governor in the region to confiscate shops and business centres that complied with the directive.

Markets, banks, motor parks and other commercial places, including schools and government offices, were under lock and key in most cities in the region.

However, contrary to information by the leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu that men of the security arm of the group, ESN would be unleashed on the streets to enforce compliance to the order, some motorists attending to emergencies were seen driving along the road without molestation or harassment.

There was heavy deployment of a combined team of security personnel who moved round the towns to ensure maintain order, though there has been no report of violence so far in the exercise.
