People observing sit at home despite suspension by IPOB

Suspending the ‘every Monday’ sit-at-home protest declared in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu, some residents of Umuahia, Awka and Onitsha are still unsure to venture out.

Vision Africa Radio correspondent who visited some places in umuahia revealed that shops along Aba roads, Azikiwe road and adjoining streets are still deserted as at 8am, while movement of private and commercial vehicles are not as busy as it used to be.

A trader in Onitsha main market, Mr Theophilus Omaka, told newsmen that as at 8am, there were only few traders who had come to the market. In Awka, newsmen moved around to also find shops still closed as at 8am, some residents, who spoke to the media, said the news of the suspension was not widely circulated.

IPOB, speaking through its publicity secretary, Mr Emma Powerful had on Saturday called off the sit-at-home order, saying that the exercise will henceforth hold only on days its leader, Kanu would appear in court.
