Streets Deserted In Imo State As Residence Obey IPOB Sit-At-Home Order

Imo State Capital, Owerri has received the worst hit as the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra to residents of Southeast on Monday puts activities on hold in almost all parts of Imo State.

While in a protest over the detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB had issued an order last week for its members to sit at home.

Meanwhile, in a statement by the state police command, the public was advised to ignore the stay at home order and proceed with their daily business, assuring them that measures to protect life and properties are in place.

The busy city known for its early hours’ boisterousness, experienced dead calmness as banks, fast food centres, markets, shops. had stayed back home for their safety.

Also, Major roads such as Owerri/Orlu road, Wetheral, Tetlow, Okigwe, Port-Harcourt, Onitsha roads and popular markets were deserted and bare.

Meanwhile, armed soldiers have also been seen monitoring and patrolling the roads and ready to apprehend anyone who attempts to make trouble.


Idle youths have also converted some streets to a football pitch since there were no vehicles on the streets.

Everyone has avoided trouble from IPOB boys by complying with the stay at home order.
