Nsukka community in Enugu State also complied to the directives issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB on Monday 9th, August.
This was confirmed by Obinwannem Nsukka studio, noting that all commercial activities, including markets, motor parks, major commercial roads were totally deserted as commuters and residents stay indoors.
According to Obinwannem correspondent, who interviewed the head manager of Peace mass transit Nsukka, said there was no passenger who patronized the transport company as a result of the lockdown.
Similarly, Obinwannem correspondent monitored the outcome of the sit-at-home in Ogige market Nsukka, “the gate linking to the market is closed, as no one is found around the market buying or selling”, she said.
Meanwhile, the Enugu State government on Sunday asked residents to ignore the Monday sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB.
The chairman of Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority, ECTA, Dr Joseph Onoh, said that people should ignore the sit-at-home, as there was no constituted authority that declared any Monday as a resting or work free day.
He assured residents in the state capital of safety, through the efforts of the security agencies.
