In total compliance with the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Economic and Social activities of the people were paralyzed in Enugu State on Monday.
As of 10.30 am on Monday, various institutions including banks, businesses, markets remained restricted as well as vehicular and human movements were also restricted from the roads in the state.
Most streets and major urban roads in the state were turned into football fields by young men and school children who used them to play football.
The total lockdown might not be unlifted with the threat by the IPOB “to deal with anyone found violating the sit at home order.”
Only on Sunday night, a former high court Judge, Justice Stanley Nnaji was shot dead while driving along the Ebeano Tunnel in Enugu.
The gunmen had doubled crossed him, pulled him out of his car, and pumped bullets into him severally before taking off in his vehicle.
These gunmen continued to ravage the state this present Monday. However, Policemen were seen mounting guards around their premises and preventing movements around their area.
There were also few patrol security vehicles comprising police, civil defence, and soldiers on the streets to maintain law and order.
